Specialist insurance broker Eastwood Private Clients aims to double in size

A specialist private client insurance broker which provides cover for high-value properties and possessions aims to double in size over the next two years after undergoing a rebrand.

Eastwood Private Clients is the new name for the high-net worth division of Huddersfield-based general insurance broker Eastwood and Partners.

It is headed by director Wayne Johnson, who leads a team of five staff with more than 75 years of private client insurance experience between them.

EPC works with a panel of specialist insurers to provide cover for buildings and contents in the UK and overseas.

Its portfolio includes mansions, stately homes, converted chapels and mills, and properties with underground shooting galleries and discos.

In addition, it insures classic cars, prestige vehicles, racehorses, yachts and collections of valuables such as jewellery, art, antiques, wines and designer bags.

Among the more unusual collections covered are dolls’ houses, comic books and model railways worth tens of thousands of pounds.

Wayne said: “The launch of Eastwood Private Clients marks the latest stage of a strategy by Eastwood and Partners to develop clear brands within the group to deliver growth in specific sectors.

“Our commitment to providing clients with a market-leading private client broker service by offering specialist expertise and a tailored personal service remains as strong as ever.

“We have seen significant expansion in the past few years and now look forward to taking the business to the next level by increasing sales activity and enhancing our product range, with some exciting developments in the pipeline.

“Having our own identity while maintaining our close ties with the Eastwood name gives us an excellent platform from which to achieve further growth, and we look forward to the future with confidence.”

Eastwood and Partners employs 100 staff across its operations in Huddersfield, Sheffield and Elland, which include Kudos Insurance Brokers,EP Risk Consultancy and Eastwood Financial Services.
