Hughes Invests £2 Million Into Commercial Insurance Offering

We have committed to investing £2 million to grow the Hughes Insurance Commercial Business.  The goal is to provide solutions for local business owners in key sectors; construction, retail and agriculture.

Our market research showed that according to Queen’s University Belfast, SMEs across Northern Ireland have experienced double the turnover of large enterprises since 2016.  We felt that safeguarding the performance of our local SME community is crucial to the continued economic growth in Northern Ireland.

Our Director of Operations and Customer Services, Bernie McHugh Sonner has said that “SMEs are the backbone of Northern Ireland’s economy employing around 80 per cent of the local workforce. It’s crucial this sector remains adequately supported and protected, particularly as the business landscape becomes increasingly unpredictable and presents greater risk with the emergence of cyber-attacks and business interruption due to global events. 

Constant monitoring of changes in our customer needs is vital so as a result we have assessed our offering, implemented relevant modifications to processes and made substantial investments to provide solutions that will support SMEs to thrive in today’s climate.  We have also invested in expanding our commercial team and in continuous development and product training of our commercial team to ensure that customers are getting the expert, tailored advice that they require.”  

Hughes Insurance has been a well-known provider in Northern Ireland for over 45 years and we are committed to investing in innovation to continually grow the strength and success of the company and provide support and protection to our local customers.
