Our journey

Making an impression

We’ve been on our journey for nearly 50 years. In that time, we’ve grown, developed, explored and experienced more than any comparable organisation. But we still understand there’s much more to learn.

The National Union of Students founded Endsleigh in 1965 to provide niche insurance services to graduates and professionals.

Today, we are the preferred insurance supplier to a wide range of professionals and professional organisations, including the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers, Association of University Teachers and Association of Optometrists.

Between then and now, there have been a few milestones on our journey. In 1976 we sold an 86% share to Gouda Insurance to give us a stronger financial base from which to fully capitalise on market opportunities. And in 2002, we underwent a management buy-out, forming a long-term, strategic alliance with Zurich Financial Services.

The relationship was so successful that Zurich acquired 100% shareholding at the start of 2007.

Zurich is a substantial parent company for Endsleigh, committed to supporting our future development and ambitious plans, particularly in product design and competitive pricing.

Together, we are making an even bigger future. Do you want to make it with us?
