Forge Commercial Combined Insurance

With effect from 15th May 2020, the insurer for our Forge Commercial Combined Insurance Scheme is moving from MS Amlin to Hiscox.


This is due to MS Amlin withdrawing from the UK property and liability insurance market. Consequently, we have taken the opportunity to review other insurers that might be willing to underwrite our scheme. After receiving several propositions, we chose Hiscox as they were willing to continue our current rating structure whilst providing improved cover along with what we believe will be a better claims service.


Hiscox have over 100 years’ experience in insurance, protecting businesses of all sizes. Hiscox have a financial rating of ‘A+’ by Fitch and ‘A’ by A.M. Best and S&P. They are also authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.


Highlights of new covers on the policy include:

  • Automatic inflationary cover of 10% to your property sum insured

  • Wider cover for property damage

  • Hiscox’s reputation and service levels on claims

  • Automatic inclusion of wider legal expenses cover from ARAG at a reduced rate


If you are currently insured with us, the change of insurer does not apply until the renewal of your policy. You will receive full information in your renewal pack about the changes.


Don’t forgot our policy has the widest coverage available in the market and includes Professional Indemnity.
