A Brief Overview of the Company

A privately owned UK company, the BGL Group was founded in 1992 as an insurance underwriter. Following a strategic change in 1997 to become a broker, the Group has grown to become a major financial services company specialising in consumer insurance, price comparison and legal services. This expansion has been achieved through a combination of organic growth and a series of major strategic acquisitions - the last of which took place in June 2013.

We now have seven million customers and employ more than 3,000 people. Our head office is in Peterborough, along with one of our contact centres. We also have contact centres in Coventry and Sunderland and claims handling teams (Minster Law) in Wakefield and York.

2013 saw the Group deliver another strong profit of £88m. In October 2013 the Group was ranked 42nd in the Sunday Times Top Track 250, Britain's 250 biggest mid-market private companies by latest sales
