Sound fi­nan­cial ad­vice for over 30 years


Brit­tany Insurances and Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices was es­tab­lished in 1987 by John F Ran­dles, pro­vid­ing Gen­eral In­sur­ance Prod­ucts e.g. Busi­ness, Home and Car In­sur­ance as well as Life As­sur­ance, In­vest­ment and Pen­sion Prod­ucts to the peo­ple of Cork and Kerry.

To­day, it has a large loyal base of sat­is­fied clients, who pre­fer the se­cu­rity of­fered by deal­ing with real iden­ti­fi­able per­sons as op­posed to the anony­mous call cen­tre op­er­a­tives.

99% of their busi­ness would come from within a 25 kilo­me­tre ra­dius, and that has contributed to the success and sta­ble growth of their busi­ness over the years, as “word of mouth” re­fer­rals were in­valu­able, and en­sured that not alone did they get gen­uine en­quiries, but also that the new cus­tomers had con­fi­dence in their ad­vise and ser­vice, and would not be eas­ily tempted to leave.

In fact, the demise of in­sur­ance bro­kers was greatly ex­ag­ger­ated as the pub­lic soon learned that price was not ev­ery­thing. Many found them­selves stranded be­cause of dan­ger­ously poor ser­vice, but also with less cover than they thought they had bought on­line, and so have re­turned to their lo­cal bro­kers again.

The value of good ad­vice from highly qual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced bro­ker staff can­not be un­der­stated, as clients are fre­quently un­aware of the se­ri­ous dif­fer­ences be­tween var­i­ous pol­icy choices, cov­ers and yes - the dan­gers in the small print, e.g. con­di­tions, ex­clu­sions etc. Brit­tany Insurances would have helped a lot of very sat­is­fied clients, to suc­cess­fully pur­sue their claims. That is one of the most sat­is­fy­ing parts of the job.

Brit­tany Insurances also ad­vise peo­ple on In­vest­ments, Life As­sur­ance and Pen­sions and can again help clients to get the most suit­able poli­cies for their par­tic­u­lar needs. Re­gret­fully they have also had to see some fam­i­lies suf­fer the loss of a spouse and/or par­ent, but at least there would have been a Life As­sur­ance pol­icy in place to help with Loans/Debts.

In fact ev­ery young cou­ple/ fam­ily should give pri­or­ity to hav­ing some Life As­sur­ance and Se­ri­ous Ill­ness cover for them­selves (not only just the min­i­mum for a Mort­gage), fol­lowed by an In­come Pro­tec­tion Pol­icy and a Pen­sion Pol­icy.

John Ran­dles has been joined by en­thu­si­as­tic in­sur­ance ap­pren­tices for the Christ­mas Sea­son.
