About the company:

Clear was established in 2001 with the aim of making strong client and insurer relationships the bedrock of our business. We set about creating a distinct culture of professionalism coupled with informality and recruiting only those people we were confident could prosper in that environment.

Our original objective was to build a medium-sized independent broker based on high quality advice and strong relationships. We have made 20 acquisitions and are proud that many of the vendors are still actively involved with the business many years beyond the acquisition of their company.

In 2013, we were awarded Chartered status, joining only a select number of brokers to uphold and maintain the standards set by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

After 14 years we have a successful, well-established & growing business.
