From January 2015 South Essex Insurance Brokers will be known as SEIB Insurance Brokers, with a new logo and marketing campaign. The company re-brand reflects the fact that SEIB is a national company and provides insurance throughout the UK and also places business internationally.
“SEIB has grown steadily over the 50 years it has been in business and has nationwide clients in a number of niche business sectors. Our policy of providing the excellent service that you would expect from a local broker is still at the core of our business, and we continue to handle claims and enquiries in house for some sectors. We have frequently had our name referred to in the short form of SEIB, and it is a natural progression to formalise this in our brand to reflect our position nationally in the market”, said Barry Fehler CEO.
Since Barry Fehler started the company over 50 years ago, the business has developed a reputation for service, claims handling and employing customer focussed staff that understand the specialist needs of their customers in the niche markets within which it operates.
SEIB offer the services of a local broker on a national scale, well known for their equestrian insurance products there is much to the company than just equine, including private hire, rural taxis, funeral directors and the diverse insurance requirements for any small to medium sized business in the UK.

The company is the preferred equine supplier for BIBA and offers a range of products through nationwide intermediaries. SEIB also provide the member benefits for British Horse Society, World Horse Welfare, British Showjumping, Arab Horse Society and insure Redwings too.
