Harrogate-based NCI Insurance Group has won a pet insurance contract with insurance giant Aviva.
The deal will run for five years and will help NCI to grow its current insurance product range for dogs, cats and rabbits. At present the work will be managed by NCI’s existing team but if the business grows significantly, they will look to recruit more people.
Neil Richards-Smith, MD and co-founder of NCI, said: “We have big plans at NCI to expand our business over the coming years and this deal is a major part of our ongoing strategy for growth.
“Aviva is one of the best-known and respected brands in insurance and we are delighted to be working closely with them. This deal is a significant win for everyone at NCI and is a testament to the quality and commitment of my colleagues in Harrogate.”
Brian Spinks, head of new business, Aviva, said: “Aviva is extremely pleased to have secured this partnership with NCI, a recognised and well established UK pet specialist. This significant deal provides fantastic cover for our customers and expands Aviva’s presence further into the ever growing UK pet market.”
