TEn is a General Insurance (GI) Broker Network, launched in 2005, with its sights firmly set on helping small established and start-up brokers weather the storms and seize the opportunities of changing times ahead.


That mission remains – essentially – the same to this day.


In a nutshell

From our beginings, we have: -

  • invented the now variously emulated AR network model for GI brokers
  • assisted over 300 start-up brokers come into existence
  • seen most of them succeed, although some others not so much
  • looked on bemused as many of our AR fledglings switch to direct regulation (DR)
  • celebrated with many who have realised the value of their initiative and labours
  • participated in the financing of acquisitions by our members of other ARs
  • established a sustainable and independent ownership model for ourselves

Consequently, we have a considerable number of stories to tell and, in this place, we aim to share many of them. At some length it is true, but our rationale is: -


if you are here, then there are many things you need to know.


A bit of background

Originally, formed as a purely Commercial Insurance network, we have since extended our remit to incorporate Private Clients and Personal Lines (EDI) business as well. We have also become a bit of a magnet for Latent Defect and other specialist start-ups.

Since 2005, TEn has become the go-to place for industry professionals who are seeking to start anew and build from there. Whether that be individually, or as a small team.

Importantly, the continued independence of TEn, as a broker network, is guaranteed by our constitution. TEn is an Employee Owned (EO) business and, as such, we would be rather complicated either to buy, or to sell.


A lot of turkeys would have to be voting for Christmas.


Consequently, we have little choice but to live long… and prosper.


Site map coming fairly soon...

...by December probably.

The site map will be an aid to navigation around our various websites. Of course, these sites have just undergone a major structural update and things are still changing.

So, it’s a bit like when a supermarket periodically shifts things around, either, just for the hell of it, or, because they have decided to squeeze in a click & collect point, where the bread used to be.

As stuff relocates, consequently, leaving the signs above the ends of the aisles as they were before, could become confusing.

Our current situation here is very similar.

Mind you, whether before or after the reorganisation, you can never find the Tahini paste. You always have to ask.
