  • A groundbreaking insurance brokerage, Mode Insurance, has been introduced to cater to the unique needs of freelancers, self-employed creatives, and small creative businesses.
  • The initiative is powered by the collective efforts of Gambit Insurance Solutions Ltd, Bspoke Insurance Group Ltd, and Movo Partnership Ltd.

Following a two-year hiatus dedicated to advocating for diversity and progression within the insurance industry through the Insurance Cultural Awareness Network (iCAN), Ajay Mistry has taken the wraps off Mode Insurance, a pioneering platform for creative professionals seeking insurance.

Ajay has been a long-standing advocate for offering insurance solutions that empower creative professionals to dictate their own security terms, driven by the recent absence of innovative insurance alternatives tailored to the creative industries.

Ajay Mistry remarked on the launch, “With Mode Insurance, my team and I have launched something new and exciting that will help creative freelancers buy the insurance they need.

“We’ve pulled together our wealth of insurance broking expertise with a team of freelancers to build a fresh and flexible service that is a game-changer for creative freelancers who want insurance that’s as flexible as they are.

“The creative economy is diverse and growing rapidly as more people than ever make the shift away from traditional ways of working. We get that it can be overwhelming, which is why we’ve made getting the right insurance straightforward and fuss-free – whether that’s just for a day, a weekend or the whole year round.

“We want to put creatives in complete control of their cover, providing them with the foundations to succeed in the creative sector.”

Adaptable, User-Friendly, and Versatile

In collaboration with Gambit Insurance Solutions Ltd, Ajay and his team have engaged with ex-freelancers and marketing specialists to meticulously develop Mode Insurance’s offerings, ensuring that their services are centred around the needs of their clientele. This customer-focused approach is enriched by Ajay’s extensive knowledge in insurance brokerage.

For their essential needs, creative freelancers and small enterprises have access to a range of insurance cover options, from equipment to personal liability, all underwritten by Bspoke Sports & Leisure on behalf of Accelerant Insurance Europe SA.

Craig Morgan, Managing Director at Bspoke Sports & Leisure, expressed his enthusiasm, “The Bspoke Group is thrilled to be working with Mode Insurance.

“The energy and expertise Ajay and the rest of the team bring is a breath of fresh air and can only help the freelancer industry as it returns to its strength following the great recovery post Covid.

“We are pleased to be at the start of a partnership together. This is the first of many distribution partnerships for the Sports & Leisure division.”

Mode Insurance’s digital platform facilitates quick online quotations for various insurance types including Public Liability, Equipment, Professional Indemnity, and Employers’ Liability, thanks to the intuitive interface designed by Durell Software.

Tom White, Managing Director at Durell, stated in anticipation of the Mode Insurance debut: “Gambit Insurance Solutions have been a fantastic company to work with, a great team, innovative approach and well-designed products.

“It’s very pleasing to launch so quickly, it really highlights the synergies offered by Durell’s collaboration with Movo.

“We continually look for new partners that align with our strategy and we saw Gambit as a perfect fit.

“I look forward to building a lasting relationship and all the new opportunities that working together will bring.”

As Gambit Insurance Solutions’ inaugural project, Mode Insurance has formed an alliance with the Movo Partnership, a network aimed at supporting both start-up and established insurance brokers.

Lea Cheesbrough, CEO at Movo Partnership & Commercial Director of Durell Software, shared her excitement: “We are delighted to be part of this amazing journey with Mode Insurance and the wider team of Gambit Insurance Solutions.

“The energy and foresight the team have runs to their core and Movo Partnership feel honoured to be a small part of this.

“Future thinking brokers like Mode are finding ways to support customers via tech and traditional customer service, making them a significant player in the independent broking market.”
