Zenith Insurance plc

Zenith Insurance plc is domiciled in Gibraltar and started life in 1937 as a motor syndicate within the world-renowned Lloyd's of London. Offering nearly 80 years' experience, extensive knowledge and expertise, we are continually developing new initiatives while providing top quality customer service and support to our network of around 1,000 FCA authorised intermediaries. We are principally known for our broker-distributed motor insurance products, and our flexible approach to risk means we are able to develop niche cover for private cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and for commercial insurance. We also provide underwriting for pet policies through Markerstudy Group of Companies Affinity Division.
