Our new product suite

Here at Eastwood & Partners we're always improving and expanding our services to meet our clients requirements, so we have created a brand new suite of insurance.

Changes to Personal Injury compensation rates

The government has recently made a ruling which could have an impact on a large number of commercial and personal insurance premiums. The announcement saw a change in the Personal Injury Discount Rate, sometimes known as the Ogden rate this has been reduced from 2.5% to -0.75% with effect from March 2017. 

Our new Cyber Insurance policy

Cybercrime is on the increase and it is no longer just a large company problem, with over 74% of small businesses in the UK having fallen victim to a cyber breach. 

Navigating the maze of Business Insurance

2016 was an eventful year in the insurance industry, including the introduction of The Insurance Act 2015 along with the news that 14,000 policyholders were affected after Gibraltar-based insurer, Enterprise Insurance, was declared insolvent*.

Both of these events will have an impact on commercial insurance buyers and should act as a reminder of the importance of making sound buying choices. At Eastwood and Partners we are well placed to help you make wise decisions about your insurance in 2017.

So what does all this mean for you?

GDPR - the effect on Cyber Insurance

Due to recent events, the Government is stepping up the fight against cybercrime. One of the new measures planned is an update of the legislation that governs the holding and sharing of data. The new General Data Protection Regulations will apply from May 2018, just 10 months before the likely date for Brexit.
