First Business Protection

Providing a new approach to commercial insurance

First Business Protection ltd was born from an urgent demand across the client base of First Business Finance (UK) to provide a new approach to commercial insurance.

First Business Group have been the asset finance and business solution provider of choice for their customers since 2008.

From years of working with start-ups to corporates in specialist sectors, we understand our customer’s requirements and are therefore trusted to offer them comprehensive insurance solutions, competitively.

We have access to the key commercial insurers including Lloyds and London market, to ensure we can cater across the wide range of our clients’ bespoke needs.

We pride ourselves on close client relationships and service, with a proven track record of longevity throughout the business cycle. Our ethos of striving and delivering the best outcomes always stays true throughout the First Business Group.

Tony Saunders

Broking Director

The relationships Tony has built over the years allow us to offer some exclusive deals from insurers.

Also his close relationship with the Lloyd’s market gives us access to niche products not usually available in the general insurance market.

The combination of his market knowledge and unique personal approach gives Tony, and therefore our clients, the edge. The trust he’s forged with insurers, from small tailor-made schemes to international insurers, allows us access to a wider range of cover options to provide the perfect fit.

Laura Barker

Account Handler

Since joining us as a quiet little mouse, Laura has progressed from apprentice to valuable member of the FBP Team. There is nothing Laura does not deal with, both with insurers and clients. It’s been a pleasure to see Laura develop her skills and become a very confident insurance professional. Many of our clients have witnessed the progression made and she is possibly the most asked about member of our team.

Akmal Saleem

Senior Claims Handler

Akmal has over 15 years of claims’ handling experience with insurers including Aviva, Markel and Hiscox. We’ve now seen his great customer service skills first-hand, as he’s quickly built relationships with our clients as well as maintaining those with his industry contacts. With his superb interpersonal skills, Akmal’s expertise lies in subrogation and claims negotiation – and he’s always happy to take your call. Outside of the office, you’ll find Akmal studying to complete his Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII) as a member of the Insurance Institute of Leeds.
