The Local Broker
with National Reach

Welcome to Gauntlet – a specialist commercial insurance broker and national broker network, delivering true power back to local brokers across the UK, as well as in our own location of Leeds and wider Yorkshire.

We channel our decades of experience of providing a personal, high-impact local broker proposition, into our ongoing search for better ways of helping clients arrange their insurance, wherever they are based.

Since 2009, our compelling proposition has had a national reach. We have empowered other dedicated independent insurance brokers and enabled them to tap into our expertise and contacts, by joining our network of appointed representatives (ARs).

With superb IT and digital
solutions, we are:

  • Spearheading the renaissance of the local broker, equipping passionate, UK-based independent brokers with all they require to delight clients.
  • Increasingly making our own in-house Leeds-based brokers the number one insurance team for commercial insurance requirements within Yorkshire.
  • Unswervingly delivering top-class broking services to every size of business, from start-ups to multi-nationals, right across the country.

This is Gauntlet. We strive to be the best.

But this is also the Gauntlet network. Choose any Gauntlet broker from within our nationwide network and they will have the same determination to be the best local broker for you.

The Gauntlet Local Broker Network

A Gauntlet network broker deeply cares about a client’s business or their personal insurance requirements and has the professional knowledge to precisely shape a client’s insurance.

Our local brokers give clients the best cover and premium options, because they benefit from Gauntlet’s incredible insurance buying power and a whole-of-market choice that many insurance providers cannot match.

Our award-winning IT and bespoke online quote-and-buy facility give our clients another advantage – the choice of buying some simpler-to-arrange commercial and personal insurance covers themselves, knowing our online service, unlike others, is backed by real people and brokers who will be there for them, if needed.

Our cutting-edge tech, available to every local broker in our network, makes service and document delivery and access seamless. It’s what powers our ability to reach into your local area and give you the advantages of our national buying power.
