About Tradex Insurance Services

The Clegg Gifford Brand 

Founding - Clegg Gifford (CG) was founded in 1968 as a general insurance broker, and later acquired status as a Lloyd's broker giving them access to unique markets and able to place specialist risks.

Where we are today - Today CG maintains a broad spectrum of both personal and commercial insurance products and is a well-known broker in the UK Insurance Industry, with a national clientele and a heritage in the motor trade.

Brokers - Historically CG has always written the majority of its business directly with the public, but since the purchase of the wholesale arm of Tradex Insurance Co Ltd. has developed a strong wholesale identity – providing non-Lloyd's brokers with access to Lloyd’s facilities, as well as being able to place business under its various binders.

Remuneration Basis 

CG are remunerated via commission on the products it sells on behalf of insurers. We may also apply fees on administrative work carried out on your policy. In addition, CG has some agreements where the insurer will pay us an additional sum if we reach certain profit targets, this commission can also decrease based on performance.

The remuneration level is usually in line with the level of work carried out on behalf of the insurer. The greater the level of work required will usually result in higher levels of commission. This work can include accounts, marketing, claims handling and in some instances CG also have delegated authority agreements in place for underwriting. The level of commission can range from 10% on some motor products to 35% on some specialist commercial lines for the London and Lloyds market.
