Brunel Group was established in 2005 by founder and CEO Russell Lane to provide a fully independent insurance brokerage. Today the group provides independent insurance and financial planning solutions to all types of corporates, businesses and individuals.
In December 2017 the Group launched Brunel Insurance Brokers Ltd to provide clients with insurance services for all commercial classes with a focus on sophisticated corporate clients requiring a professional and advisory proposition. Shortly after the successful launch of Brunel Insurance Brokers, the Group expanded into personal lines insurance with Brunel Insurance For People after hiring a team of personal lines experts.
In September 2019, Brunel Employee Benefits was launched to provide insurance packages for businesses to support their employees further with comprehensive employee benefits packages.
In January 2020, Brunel Wealth was launched to provide financial planning and wealth management to businesses, business owners, high-net-worth individuals, and for pre and post retirement. Brunel Wealth was launched to provide an independent financial planning and complete wealth management service to clients, utilising access to a full panel of product providers and investment companies.
The Brunel Group is one of the UK’s fastest growing insurance and financial planning groups. We employ over 90 staff and have offices in Bovey Tracey, Bristol, Coventry, London, Portishead, Stockton-on-Tees and Weston-super-Mare.
We provide extensive insurance solutions and have access to a wide market of insurers. We are not restricted to limited panels of insurers and do not operate schemes with insurers. This means our clients benefit from a full market review, competitive pricing and access to more appropriate wordings for their risk.
We have adopted highly disciplined client focused management processes, with the goal of delivering unparalleled service. We have an on-going commitment to resourcing our business with both high calibre new recruits and insurance professionals with a wealth of industry experience. We regularly audit our procedures to maintain relevancy and challenge our work process with increasing internal commitments to client service.
Chartered Insurance Brokers
Brunel Insurance Brokers Limited has been recognised for its commitment to client service by being awarded the prestigious Chartered status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). This is the industry’s gold standard for firms of insurance brokers. To achieve this status we underwent rigorous independent assessment that looked at criteria such as the levels of professional qualifications held individually by our staff and our commitment to ethical good practice. There is only a select group of 200 insurance brokers that have been awarded Chartered status and the fact that we have achieved this in such a short time shows the calibre of the team here at Brunel.
Independent Financial Planning
Brunel Wealth Ltd provides an independent financial planning and complete wealth management service to our clients, utilising access to a full panel of product providers and investment companies. We understand that no two clients are the same, that’s why we take the time to really know you, clarifying your current circumstances and encourage—sometimes challenge—thoughts on what’s really important to you and those you love, then work together to target these objectives and achieve peace of mind. We work closely with all our clients and meet you throughout your financial journey, holding regular reviews to ensure goals remain on track, and to take account of any changes that life has brought along the way.
