Why choose Purple?
"We joined the Purple Partnership to access a couple of very specific facilities which we felt would be of great use to our clients. Therefore initially, we were sceptical as to whether the much broader range of services available in the group would be of use. I was also concerned that we might feel pressure to do more than we could. Being a specialist charity insurance broker, we were not sure how many of the broader offerings would be valid.
Having now experienced the partnership, all those fears are allayed. Setting up was simple, the partnership seeks to compliment rather than intrude, an approach which has garnered some excellent trust. What is more, we have been surprised at how much we can use some of the facilities available and some of our existing accounts, without prompting, improved our terms!
Finally, there is a good community within Purple. Members supporting each other and offering advice and networking opportunities. We are looking to become more involved in that in time"
Tim Larden, Ladbrook Insurance, Sheffied

"The Purple deal is fantastic....so a big thank you for coming up trumps yet again."

"Another key feature for us is the ability to access the Jelf Group's impressive breadth of proposition which enables us to introduce our customers to products and services that we could not or might not wish to arrange ourselves eg healthcare, commercial finance, group pension administration, special indemnities etc. The client gets properly looked after, we get financially rewarded - and the clients always remain our clients! And we have already saved a substantial sum on our own group healthcare policy!"
