They specialise in providing business insurance for SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises) and during the year up to September 2019 they turned over just over £6.4 million. Initially they concentrated on providing public and employers' liability cover for the building industry. They now claim to serve thousands of small businesses with policies underwritten by insurers such as AXA, Zurich and Aviva.

They claim to be able to beat any like-for-like policy by 5% for businesses in a list of building trades.
