CEO Jimmy Williams said “We want it to be as easy as possible for people to get their home insurance sorted at exactly the time they need it, and we’re looking forward to working with a number of like-minded companies who want to broaden their customer offering.

We think the future of financial services will be an open one, where products are offered ‘in-context’, and this launch is a major step in helping our partners do just that.”

The newly launched programme allows companies to easily offer Urban Jungle’s insurance products and leverages technology to ensure that partners remain compliant, without the need to be directly regulated by the FCA.
