Founded in 1965 by the National Union of Students, Endsleigh quickly expanded into relationships with graduates and professionals. We are the preferred insurance supplier for a wide range of 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 April 2002, Endsleigh executive directors undertook a management buyout and formed a long term strategic alliance with Zurich Financial Services.
The successful relationship between Endsleigh and Zurich resulted in Zurich negotiating to acquiring 100% shareholding in January 2007.
As a consequence, Endsleigh now has a very substantial parent company fully committed to supporting future business development, particularly in product design and competitive pricing.
