About JJ Yates
Although JJ Yates can trace its history back to 1866, its transition to become one of the North West’s premier independent insurance brokerages began in 1968, when the company was purchased by its current Managing Director, Tony Slater.
Tony grew the company from its roots of providing high quality advice and service to a variety of businesses within Greater Manchester to becoming the in-house broker to the conglomerate Hillsdown Holdings plc (peak turnover £3.5bn). This insurance programme provided the optimum risk transfer arrangements for not only its UK business arrangements, but also those in Europe, USA and Canada.
Following the acquisition of Hillsdown by US Venture Capitalists, and the subsequent restructuring of its business’s, JJ Yates retained the vast majority of its former client base, due to the strong relationships that had been formed with the individual companies within the conglomerate, based on trust, understanding and reliability. This philosophy is embedded throughout our company and applies to all our relationships with each of our clients, regardless of size or location.
JJ Yates has been shaped to respond to all your insurance requirements, ranging from:
Household, Motor, Private Medical Insurance
Assets/Loss of Profit and Liability insurance, Motor Fleet, Engineering insurances, Professional Liabilities, Employee Benefits
Our culture puts the client’s needs at the heart of our service provision to ensure we become, and then remain, your trusted insurance advisor.
