"From the outset, we have found Acquis a great company to work with, not least because of the great people in their team. Their insurance programme provides us with very good protection and a value-add service for our customers. It enables us to offer our customers a range of high quality products."

Sales Director


Close Brothers Business Finance have been working with Acquis for over 5 years, originally selecting Acquis as their equipment insurance provider due to their reputation for integrity and specialist knowledge in the market. From the start, they found Acquis approachable and proactive to deal with.

The Acquis Insurance programme provides Close Brothers Business Finance with the reassurance that equipment is correctly covered by a high-quality insurance policy, enabling them to reduce risk in their portfolio. And because Acquis track insurance on the equipment for the life of the lease, they are provided with total peace of mind that leased equipment is adequately protected. The fast repair or replace service that Acquis offers provides Close Brothers Business Finance with the reassurance that in the event of damage or loss to equipment, clients are able to operate their businesses without interruption.

By outsourcing the management of customer services and claims to Acquis, Close Brothers Business Finance are confident that their interests are properly protected by a professional operation with specialist expertise in equipment insurance. Partnering with Acquis for equipment insurance has significantly reduced the administrative burden, and has simplified the regulatory requirements associated with alternative insurance programmes.
