Amethyst | exceptional cover for your mid-net-worth clients

We are delighted to announce the re-launch of our mid-net-worth home insurance product – currently known as Elite, about to be known as Amethyst.
Having listened carefully to our brokers’ feedback, we have taken the opportunity to significantly improve the product - with fewer limitations, higher policy limits and new automatic cover extensions.

For quotes with a 1st January 2013 start date and onwards, Amethyst is now automatically available when you log in online. Until then, you can quote your mid-net-worth clients on the existing Elite product.
