Simply Business partners with RSA to launch SME shop insurance

Digital commercial broker Simply Business announced its partnership with RSA, which will join Simply Business’s panel of insurance providers and offer tailored insurance products to Simply Business’s customers via MORE THAN and RSA brands.

The collaboration will bring RSA’s MORE THAN brand to Simply Business’s customers, building on the recognition and reputation of the brand across personal insurance and offering greater choice to Simply Business’s customers. The insurer will also offer its specialist RSA Shop insurance to help cater to the demands of small shop owners specifically.

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on all of us and that’s especially true for small businesses . That’s why we’re delighted to partner with an iconic insurer like RSA to help provide yet more strong brands and even greater choice to our SME customers. Owning a shop is about so much more than premises and operations, they’re built by hard working people. And together with RSA we’re working to make sure there are fewer worries after a challenging year. Our data shows there is a growing demand for shop insurance with SMEs across the country starting to kickstart or open their operations – it’s important we can support small businesses knowing that they will be crucial to our collective recovery. At Simply Business we’re passionate about supporting small business owners and it feels like the right time to explore ways to extend even more choice to support our retail and shop SME customers’ insurance needs through partnering with RSA who share that passion.” – Alan Thomas, CEO at Simply Business.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Simply Business to expand the distribution of our high quality SME insurance products under both our RSA and MORE THAN brands. As Alan notes, small businesses are the lifeblood of the UK economy and play a critical role in our society. We are proud to play our part in supporting them to realise their full potential.” – Rob Flynn, SME Director.
