Founded in 1976, we were one of the first Chartered Insurance Brokers in the UK to be granted chartered status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). Our team has satisfied comprehensive qualification criteria and subscribed to the membership conditions as set by the CII to ensure that every member of staff is fully qualified for the benefit of our clients.
In addition to this, as members of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA), we are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and committed to complying with a strict code of conduct whilst upholding values regarding Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) in all dealings with customers.
In 2017, D E Ford became a member of the PIB Group, a growing group of insurance advisory businesses across the UK. This has enabled us to access a further range of knowledge and experience across the insurance sector, providing more benefits for our clients.
We believe that it is our attention to detail, dedicated service and our personal touch that truly makes us stand out from the crowd.
