“I have used Yutree’s scheme and the staff were extremely efficient, professional and were able to place the exact cover that my client requested at a very competitive price” – Academy Insurance Brokers Ltd

Case Study

A risk was presented to us by a broker where their client ran an association for local beekeepers. The association meet, exchange ideas, hold events and sell a small amount of their produce at local markets. The client wanted their broker to arrange cover for the liabilities of the association. They needed to consider injuries to employees/volunteers, injuries to third parties or damage to property belonging to third parties arising from their activities and the sale of their products. Some typical insurer responses to such an enquiry:

  • “We don’t understand the exposure” – no quote
  • “It is too small for us to consider” – no quote
  • “Please use our e-trade facility”  There is no option for ‘beekeepers association’ in the online/e-trade drop down menu – no quote

We quoted a minimum premium of £150 + ipt which met all of their current liability insurance requirements and placed the cover issuing documentation the same day.
