Chartered Insurance Brokers Logo

In 2007, we were awarded the prestigious title of ‘Chartered Insurance Broker’ by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and are the only independent broker in Dorset to have achieved this status. Awarded to less than 225 brokers in the UK², the title is given to those who pass a rigorous annual inspection to prove they can demonstrate their professional commitment to raising standards of knowledge, capability and ethical practice. We have successfully renewed our status each year since 2007. Chartered broker status is recognised as the ‘gold standard’ within the insurance industry and it proves to clients that they can expect the very highest levels of expertise, service and support on a continued basis.

Here at Alan & Thomas, we are committed to providing our clients with first class service and advice on their risk management and insurance programmes. The majority of our advisory staff have obtained their professional qualifications from the CII and are experts in their chosen sector so clients can be assured of tailored and knowledgeable service. We also have a very experienced in-house claims team who will take the pressure off you in the unfortunate event of a claim and pursue the matter to a satisfactory conclusion with your insurer.

With headquarters in Poole, Dorset and further offices in Gillingham, Dorchester, Frome and Basingstoke, we now employ over eighty staff members.  All our staff adhere to a strict set of values, chosen by them, to ensure clients are treated with the highest levels of customer service, respect and efficiency - please see below.

We work closely with the UK's leading insurers to develop bespoke insurance products, which allows us to tailor cover to our clients' exact requirements to fit their lifestyle and needs.
