A new South Yorkshire insurance brokerage is flourishing, thanks to giving an honest opinion and transparent advice to South Yorkshire businesses, even as to whether they are better off keeping existing arrangements, rather than changing them for something it can offer.
Daniel Fielding, of Fielding Insurance in Sheffield, set up his own business on the basis of this refreshing approach to insurance provision after 15 years in the industry and with the help of large and long-established commercial insurance broker, Gauntlet.
Daniel became an Appointed Representative of Gauntlet in June 2014, tapping into the huge buying power of its network. This has allowed his business to offer a wide range of policies, at the best prices.
Daniel previously worked for names such as Liberty Mutual Insurance, CNA Insurance and Prudential and has vast experience in handling the insurance needs of small and large businesses, residential and commercial property investors and those with Management Liabilities.
There are numerous reasons for Fielding Insurance’s success to date. Daniel’s informed understanding of risk, as a former underwriter, has helped him guide customers through the insurance maze, to marry them up with the ideal policy for their requirements.
He has also been able to deliver valuable advice to businesses operating in key regional niches, including technology firms facing up to issues such as cyber attacks and hacking, property investors needing to insure their portfolio and creative agencies requiring protection for professional indemnity, public liability and events.
Directors and officers needing protection to be in place for worst-case scenarios, such as against corporate manslaughter charges, libel, slander and investigations by Government bodies, are now using Daniel as their insurer.
Being able to handle business insurance needs, alongside motor, fleet, medical and high net worth policies, has not only attracted business from within Yorkshire, but also from locations nationwide.
Daniel said “My vision is to grow a sustainable business built on honesty, technical insurance knowledge and integrity and that has happened. I set up my own business, because I knew that, as an Appointed Representative of Gauntlet, I would be working with a team that shares my ambitions and assists with all the back-office aspects of business that would otherwise take me away from the areas that most require my focus.
“Working with the Gauntlet team, has allowed me to get off to a flying start. This has made a huge difference and has enabled me to have the confidence to achieve my goals.”
