Welcome to NFU Mutual Derby agency, where delivering quality advice, solutions and service to our clients is at the core of our business. We are committed to investing in and developing our team to ensure we deliver the best service to our clients.

We pride ourselves on our personal and friendly approach combined with the expertise and professionalism to ensure we identify and meet your needs. Our key insurance and advisory areas are:

Corporate – we are one of NFU Mutual’s corporate focus agencies and we pride ourselves on our high account servicing capability for large commercial businesses. Our insurance and risk management advice covers property, liability, fleet, business interruption, financial lines (Directors & Officers, Cyber) and product recall insurances all supported by the NFU Mutual’s Health & Safety and Fleet Risk Management Services. We also have a wealth of industry experience to leverage our in-house broking arm should we ever need to access alternative insurance markets and solutions.

Commercial – simple and easy to understand standard package and tailored policies for all types of business, such as food & drink, hospitality, property owners, retail, tradesmen and wholesale. As the leading specialist farm insurance provider in the market, we are also always looking to further our work with local farmers.

Personal – we offer a large range of home insurance products from building and contents cover to pet, horse & rider and travel additional covers. In addition, we also provide a range of motor products – including personal car, commercial vehicle, tractor and vintage car.   

Private Client – our Bespoke insurance is specifically tailored for high value properties and especially contents including valuables, collections, art, high value cars, holiday homes and yachts. You’ll receive a personal service to ensure you get the right cover and we will review this with you annually. 

Financial Services – at your local agency you can access NFU Mutual’s excellent range of financial services products and solutions. You can speak to us about all your needs, including financial planning including protection, pensions and investments, and we can also introduce you to our NFU Mutual Financial Adviser, Andrew Miles. 

We always aspire to reach the highest possible standards of customer service for both our commercial and personal clients and aim to build a long-term relationship with you and an in-depth personalised understanding of your account.
