Helping to make insurance more affordable for over 1.5 million people and businesses by spreading the cost through premium finance.

With over 35 years' experience in the industry, Close Brothers Premium Finance is the pioneering
provider of premium finance. We provide expert support and service to over 2,000 brokers across
the UK and Ireland. Our aim is to understand your individual business goals and work closely with
you to help you offer your customers more choice - and increase your income.

Premium finance widens your product range and gives your customers more options when it comes to paying for their insurance. For both businesses and individuals, premium finance is a convenient alternative to paying premiums in one lump sum, allowing them to manage their finances more easily or free up capital for other uses. As well as benefiting your customer, using premium finance helps you manage your business more efficiently and reduces time spent on administration. You'll also gain a second income stream, with regular incoming payments and improved cash flow.
