Vaughan Insurance Brokers was established in 1990 by Managing Director Ian Gosden. Whilst trading as a financial adviser, Ian found his clients regularly asked him about general insurance products and in response to their enquiries he established his first agencies with some of the nation’s largest insurers.
Other financial advisors, seeing the benefit of providing general insurance products direct to their clients, asked to use Ian’s agencies on a split commission basis. The success of this concept resulted in Higos employing it’s first full time staff member in June 1991, just nine months after the company was established.
In November 1995, the company moved to new premises to house its growing workforce and in 2001 a second site was opened to accommodate new Training, HR and IT facilities for the then 60 strong team. In 2004 a marketing department was established helping to raise the profile of Higos on a local and national scale.
In 2006, Higos opened its first High Street branch in Glastonbury, Somerset. Since this date Higos has continued to increase its high street presence, acquiring additional insurance shops in Street, Langport, Chipping Sodbury, Somerton, Devizes, Calne, Ferndown, Bridgwater, Worle, Braunton, Wells, Crewkerne, Bridport, Plymstock, Totton, Exeter, Christchurch, Yeovil, Park Gate and Burnham-on-Sea.
Now employing over 250 staff, the company continues to grow through acquisition, direct business, our agent network and our underwriting facility.
Higos is proud to have received a number of insurance industry and regional accolades. In December 2012 Higos was named Independent Regional Broker of the Year at the Insurance Times Awards in London.
