This year, at the 2017 Your Money Awards, Beagle Street which is an online life insurance provider based in Peterborough was awarded the national online as the best of its kind. It was a coincidence that they got awarded the best award while the Beagle Street, which was set up by the BGL Group, of Bakewell Road, Orton Southgate, celebrates its fifth anniversary.
The company grew and had gone from about ten employees to 70 over the five years.
Beagle Street managing director, Matthew Gledhill, said: “Before Beagle Street, it was a tortuous process trying to buy life insurance and often involved doctors, financial advisers and a lot of jargon.
“We wanted to offer something that insured people’s lives simply and quickly and by the internet.
“The root of our success is we’ve made the process easy, accessible and affordable, and we’ve shown a complete commitment to delivering the best possible customer service.
“We’ve made the life insurance industry sit up and take notice of us.”
