At Read Insurance Brokers Limited we treat our clients as we would like to be treated ourselves: as individuals. We do not win business on the premise of excellent personal service, only to relegate clients to a second tier service thereafter. We make the effort to get to know our clients’ businesses thoroughly and we update each other by regular visits. We are there when you need us – just a phone call away with direct access to key insurance personnel.

Since we are independently owned, we are not subject to the preferences of a remote management structure.

“We know our clients have a choice at every renewal: we never take clients for granted.”

  • We are competitive -We have many satisfied clients who are evidence of our competitiveness in a very challenging industry.
  • We are thorough -We undertake a thorough assessment of your business every year and visit most clients at least once a year.
  • We help with claims -We will work hard for you if you claim and we do not make a charge for this service.
  • We are professional – We are professionally qualified in general insurance and are strictly regulated and monitored by the Financial Conduct Authority.
  • We have muscle – We are an appointed representative of Momentum Broker Solutions Limited. Please refer to

Tourism is also a crucial part of the local economy with many hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues. These types of business are ideally suited to a range of our insurance services: such as Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Insurance helps manage the risk and mitigate the effects of the unexpected so owners of engineering and manufacturing companies can concentrate on growing their business with the peace of mind they are well insured.


Read Insurance Brokers Limited is owned and managed by Peter Read, who has been a commercial insurance broker since 1984. He has managed the insurance programmes for major companies both in the UK and overseas. He qualified as an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute in 1987.

“When I started this business some years ago, I was determined that every client would receive the best service possible. That practice continues to this day and will never change.

People come to us because we are thorough and competitive, but most of all, they come to us because we identify the risks, solve their problems and explain things clearly and succinctly”.

We have used Read Insurance Brokers for Our Commercial and Household Insurance since 2009. Peter is always helpful and reliable and goes the extra mile to make sure we get the most thorough insurance cover at a competitive rate. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

LinkedIn Recommendation from Owner of Minster Press & Publishing Solutions

Peter is one of the few Insurance Brokers I have met who asks intelligent questions at renewal. He is a real professional, in my opinion. I have found many of his competitors not to be.
