Barclays is one of the oldest and largest banks in the UK. It was founded in 1690, and provides a comprehensive range of banking products.
It also offers a range of insurance products but Barclays itself is not an insurer. So its policies are underwritten by various other insurers, depending on the type of insurance.
Its home insurance is provided by Gresham Insurance Company, and its travel insurance by CIGNA.
Barclays’ life insurance is underwritten by Aviva, unless you are getting a deal as an existing mortgage holder, in which case it will be Legal & General underwriting the policy.
It is ranked below average for customer happiness for its insurance products. And Barclays’ insurance customers don’t trust the brand much at all. However, a solid complaints performance and reasonable transparency ensure it gets a Bronze Fairer Finance Ribbon for home insurance.
Furthermore, in life insurance, where customer scores are not part of our analysis, solid scores across the board are enough to award Barclays a bronze Fairer Finance ribbon.
