Media and brand

Founded in 1965 by the National Union of Students, Endsleigh built upon its expertise and experience within the education sector and quickly expanded into relationships with graduates and professionals. We are the preferred insurance supplier for a wide range of educational organisations, including the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers, Association of University Teachers and Association of Optometrists.

In 1976 it was felt that a stronger financial base was needed to expand our market opportunities. Gouda Insurance Company of the Netherlands took an 86% share, with NUS retaining 14%.

In 2006, Endsleigh was acquired by Zurich, merging with Zurich’s Personal Lines business in 2014.

In March 2018, Endsleigh was acquired by A-Plan Holdings.
