Lime in deal to broaden general insurance range

Lime, the Tenet Group’s mortgage and general insurance arm, is signing a deal with Callbruce to expand its commercial general insurance range.

Tenet members will be able to access a range of products and cover within all classes of GI from the seven major underwriters used by Callbruce – Axa, Norwich Union, Zurich, RSA, NIG, Groupama and Allianz Cornhill. Callbruce is the business-to-business division of Bruce Stevenson Insurance Services.

Lime is expecting its general insurance business to continue to grow, building on the 20 per cent month-on-month increase in general insurance cases since the launch in January last year.

The firm will continue to offer products from household names and more specialist providers.

Callbruce operations director Sarah Kelly says: “We are very excited at the prospect of working with the Tenet Group.”

Lime general insurance manager Bob Lander says: “I am delighted we have been able to increase our coverage in the commercial insurance arena. The addition of Call-bruce to our panel will provide our members with increased access to all products.”
