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 one of the largest personal lines insurance brokers in the UK. 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 2002.
We now arrange and administer insurance for more than two million customers and we employ more than 2,150 people. Our head office is in Peterborough, along with one of our contact centres. We also have contact centres in Coventry, Sunderland and Peterlee in the UK, and Cape Town in South Africa.
