Same team, same great service.

On the 28th March 2024, Scrutton Bland Insurance Brokers was purchased by Jensten Group and will join Jensten owned, One Broker Insurance, as we pursue a regional and specialist centres of excellence strategy, focussed on growing both a broader regional footprint, and a larger number of specialisms.

Tim Mulley, Director at Scrutton Bland Insurance Brokers will continue to lead the business, commented: “It was important to us that we join a business with a good cultural fit and a clear focus on clients. It was evident right from the beginning that this was the case with Jensten and One Broker. We have a strong presence in the East Anglian region and preserving that local connection with our clients was important for us. We wanted to join a business that was able to support our growth, offer continued stability to our clients, at the same time as genuinely appreciating the significance of preserving our regional connection.”

Scrutton Bland insurance brokers work with both commercial and private clients to deliver a personalised service underpinned by over 100 years’ experience and the desire to ensure clients have the cover they need when they need it most.

For Business

We understand every business is different, and that getting the right cover in place is a big part of helping you feel secure. We can access the UK’s leading insurers to find the right cover for you – whether that is for a straightforward employer’s liability policy or more complex risk management advice.

Many of the team have specialist knowledge of certain sectors including agriculture, transport, construction, and manufacturing, and can advise on cover that’s relevant to your area of work.

For Charities

Through our specialist charity scheme, we offer policies with exclusive terms to over 500 charities, not-for-profit and voluntary organisations. Our dedicated team has over ten years’ experience in providing bespoke insurance solutions to clients operating in the sector, harnessing their expertise to protect clients against the various risks they face.

With their own personal connections to the charity sector, each of our specialists has a vested interest in looking after the unique needs of their clients.

For Private Individuals

Our dedicated service for private individuals is just as bespoke – we take the time to understand precisely what you need and then assess the whole market to find the solution.

As your insurance broker, we can help with home or car insurance, or help you to protect your business or charity. Our private client advisers use their experience and expertise to identify the type of cover you need.
