Be Wiser Insurance

As founders of A Quote Insurance, which they sold in 2004, Andrew Dunkerley and Mark Bower-Dyke knew the score when they set up this Andover-based insurance broking firm with six other directors in 2007. It says it is now a broker for more than 30 of Britain’s largest insurers, with most revenue derived through the sale of car, van and bike premiums, which 80,000 policyholders have now purchased. Claiming to offer a friendlier and less commoditised service than mainstream comparison websites, Be Wiser achieved an increase in sales by 139% a year, from £889,000 in 2008 to £12.1m in 2011.
