Came & Company
Why Choose Us?
Came & Company was established in September 1995 by Peter Came, who realised that there was still a requirement in the insurance market for good old-fashioned, personal service. Many people still want to be looked after by someone who genuinely cares and takes the time to explain the ins and outs of general insurance contracts, and that is what our local council insurance brokers are here to do.
Since 1995, Came & Company has consistently provided its many valuable and varied clients with a highly personal, professional, bespoke insurance service. Our brokers look after all types of commercial enterprise, from farms and factories to cottages and mansions. We are proud of the service we provide to all.
In 2003, we became members of Broker Network Limited – an umbrella organisation for insurance brokers. Broker Network controls premium in excess of £450m and our membership places us on an equal footing with the largest national brokers, securing rating discounts and agreed service levels. At the same time, our independence and private ownership ensures that our personal, professional service remains of paramount importance.
The advent of specialist local council insurance brokers
In the autumn of 2006, Peter Came discovered a gap in the market for a commercial insurance policy inclusive of all the covers that local councils should have – regardless of their size.
He was delighted when Aviva agreed to underwrite a tailored policy for Came & Company. With significant support from the Hampshire Association of Local Councils, a pilot scheme was launched in Hampshire in 2007. The success of this scheme led to the policy being enhanced and developed and the Came & Company Parish Council Scheme was launched in 2008 with great success. We have now been providing insurance and advice to councils in this sector for the last 6 years.
Our strategy is simple: provide the best cover together with proactive service, and keep annual premiums at a sustainable lever for the sector.
Came & Company continues to succeed in the sector because we care. Our brokers are passionate about making sure that good people doing the right things for their communities are properly insured as they do so.
