Network Insurance is the island's only family owned independent broker and has recently been a hive of activity with a complete rebrand, appointment of a new Director and new website coming soon.
December 1st saw the official launch of Network's new brand and we went along to help celebrate at their newly refurbished offices at Dewhurst House in town. You definitely cannot miss the Network Insurance building at the bottom of Le Truchot with its new violet honeycomb exterior. Director Oliver Goater explains why the rebrand;
"We had the previous blue branding for more than five years and felt it was time for a change. We wanted to stand out from the crowd and appeal to a wider range of people. The new look is made up of a network of hexagonal bee honeycombs representing what Network Insurance are all about".
It is evident that they have put in a lot of time, thought and investment as nothing has been spared. Not only have they rebranded the external and internal office, stationery, and company car, they are also busy with the launch of a new website which will be live soon.
The website is going to include a section on all staff, an extensive list of products and services (a number exclusive to Network in the Channel Islands) and the ability to purchase marine, household and travel insurance products. Going forward there will also be a function to obtain an online quote for personal loans.
Oliver explained that once a quote has been approved, you will have the opportunity to meet with a consultant to ensure the product is the right one for your needs. Offering this personal touch to clients is very important to the organisation.
In addition to these changes Gemma Douglass has been internally promoted to Director. Gemma started with Network just over a year ago and heads up the Financial Planning side of the business. Networking Financial Planning has grown considerably since its establishment and now provides retirement, savings and investments, individual protection, business protection and holistic financial planning services to the local and UK market.
Oliver commented further on the recent changes;
"Times are tough but we are strong and secure and are investing in the company; not only with the re-brand, but also by appointing key personnel".
All the Directors understand it is important for their clients to be able to differentiate between Network Insurance and Network Financial Planning and hopes the re-branding will emphasise this.
