Welcome to NFU Mutual Cirencester agency, located in a magnificent barn conversion next to the Royal Agricultural University.

We are a friendly, welcoming and helpful team that will always strive to provide a professional and personal service. We offer motor, household, equine and business insurance policies, with specialist knowledge in farming, rural estates and property ownership, alongside high value home insurances. The local, tailored service that we offer is the reason why customers have trusted us with their insurances for over 50 years here in Cirencester.

We can also arrange financial planning and advice in relation to pensions, investments, life insurances, and inheritance tax planning with our in-house NFU Mutual Financial Adviser, and we also help customers manage the safety procedures within their workplace with our risk management services. We are centred on Cirencester, but cover the whole of Gloucestershire including Fairford, Lechlade, South Cerney, Cricklade, Minchinhampton, Chalford & other surrounding areas.

For an informal chat about how we can assist you going forward, please give us a call or pop into the office for a cup of tea and some good conversation!

Our team

Tom Traish

Senior Agent

I became an Agent in 2014, and am now very proud to be the Senior Agent here in Cirencester! I am an associate member of the Chartered Insurance Institute, and despite having many responsibilities day-to-day, I still spread my time amongst all areas of the business, particularly specialising in farm insurance, high-net-worth home insurance, and commercial insurance. I am also our NFU Group Secretary, and take massive amounts of pride in being able to contribute within our local farming community. I am always looking for ways to help both existing and new clients, as well as placing high importance in creating a happy and motivated working environment for our staff members. In my free time I love hiking, golfing, rugby, and more or less anything else that can be done outdoors!

Tom Soanes

Wider-Market Agent

I am proud to have joined Tom in partnership as of April 2018, and on top of my share of the day-to-day running of the agency, I am a commercial insurance specialist and cover all areas of insurance and risk management with clients. Having grown up locally and worked in financial services for my entire career to date (with my experience spanning from financial advice, to investment management, to insurance), I am very keen to connect with businesses both within our local community and wider-area, and take great pleasure in building relationships and learning everything I can about a business in order to establish how we can offer assistance. Outside of the office, I am a very keen hiker and camper, and enjoy a good round of golf despite my limited skills!

I handle all of our accounts and billing systems, and have always found that clear, practical and helpful assistance is a recipe for success! My real love is hiking and I am well on my way to climbing every major peak in Britain, and I also love to spend time with my family and friends.

As the specialist in-house Claims Handler in Cirencester, my role is to make the claims experience for our clients as smooth and stress-free as possible. I hope that we never have to speak (!), but should the unfortunate occur, be rest-assured that I will be efficient and re-assuring throughout the process. I am also licensed in our motor, home, and lifestyle covers, and in my spare time I enjoy playing rugby for Cirencester RFC II’s, as well as helping out as one of the leaders at Cotswold District Explorer Scouts.
