Spring Newsletter 2017
Hello everyone and welcome to our Spring 2017 issue of The Great British Broker. As I write, the sun is streaming through my office window and I’m looking at daffodils in the garden, so I feel confident in wishing you all a very happy spring. Well, we certainly have a very informative issue of our newsletter this time around which we hope will educate and advise, in addition to being an enjoyable read.
March has been quite a tumultuous month in the world of insurance and we have an interesting article about recent changes to ‘The Ogden Rate’. What does this mean to you? Please read on to find out. You can also learn about our latest charitable partnership, how landlords can obtain the emergency protection they need and find out which of the beautiful gardens in Kent to visit this spring! In our regular Employee feature we will be turning the Spotlight on Leon Price, our Commercial and Private Clients Manager.
We are also looking forward to another busy summer of classic vehicle shows and have already taken ‘Victor’ our little Austin A35 out for a drive around Sevenoaks! We will also be undertaking our very own classic vehicle show this year at the beautiful Kenward House, but more on that later! In the meantime, that just leaves us to wish you all a very happy Easter and a jolly warm and sunny spring!
As your insurance broker it is our job to ensure that you have the peace of mind knowing that your personal and business assets are well protected. One aspect of this is monitoring the latest insurance industry news and being aware of any changes that may affect you as a customer. As of 20th March it was announced that the Ogden discount rate has been reduced from 2.5% to -0.75%. What does this mean and will it have an impact on you as a customer? Click here to learn more.
At Invicta you always receive a pleasant, helpful and friendly service, but what do you know of the terrific people who make up the Invicta team? In this spot of our newsletter we will introduce you to one of the Invicta staff members who, on a daily basis, help to provide our customers with quality and courteous service. In this issue we say hello to Leon Price, our Commercial and Private Clients Manager.
Invicta staff have always felt passionately about supporting the local community and working with various charitable organisations in the area. It is with this sentiment that we are delighted to announce our decision to partner with Kent Charity of the Year Award 2017 winners Kenward Trust. For nearly 50 years the Kenward Trust have been providing primary stage residential rehabilitation and recovery services for men and women at various locations across Kent and East Sussex. Invicta have already begun helping the Trust by implementing donation initiatives and planning fundraising events. If you’d like to learn more, please read on.
Here at Invicta we are always looking for ways in which we can provide additional protection and peace of mind for our clients. We believe it is important to provide clients with the option of being able to enhance their cover. In this article we are delighted to unveil the details of a new, cost effective Home Emergency and Legal Assistance cover for Landlords.
