We were set up 140 years ago to provide insurance to the Anglican church in the UK. We are part of the Benefact Group, which is made up of specialist financial services businesses and we give all available profits to charity.

The business of giving

We entered the Irish market in the early 1980s and offer insurance to the faith, heritage, arts and culture, education, and charity sectors. We insure buildings such as St Patrick’s and Christ Church Cathedral, the National Gallery, National Opera House in Wexford and the likes of heritage homes, schools and charities.
