We’re not your average insurance company.

We are a diverse group of creative minds, all passionately striving towards the same goal of finding better ways for employers to protect and support their employees. We pride ourselves on constantly thinking outside the box to find better ways to do this.

Our people are empowered to be creative, confident, dynamic and to go the extra mile in delivering this vision. We’re empathetic, friendly, honest and open with each other and everyone who does business with us.

our story

We were created in 2009 out of the desire to do things better in the Group Risk industry.
Since then we’ve been entrusted to protect over 314,000 lives, but we continue to challenge ourselves to find better ways to protect and care for more people, more efficiently and more affordably.

We’ll achieve this through the dynamism and expertise of our people, amplified by continual innovation in technology, processes and automation, all backed by the financial strength of Munich Re, our owners.

Our approach to protecting people allows us to deliver better value, more accurate cover and prioritise giving great service to every adviser, employer and employee in our care.

Because protecting people is our business.

Ellipse is the trading name of the UK branch of ERGO Lebensversicherung AG, a Munich Re subsidiary. Being the UK branch of a German insurer, we are authorised to trade by the German financial regulator, Bafin. However, the way we conduct our business is subject to regulation by the FCA.  We are members of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. 

our causes

We believe in supporting charities and initiatives that are focused on helping people, families and communities, an extension of what our business is all about.

You Quote, We Donate

In October 2014, we introduced a new feature to our online quote service. When an adviser completes a quote online they are asked to select one of three charities to receive a £1 donation from Ellipse. Each charity is a local cause nominated by advisers.

Every three months, we add up the votes and make the donations.  We also change the charities we support at this time too, so if you would like to propose please contact us at youquotewedonate@ellipse.co.uk

Our current nominated charities are:

Micro Sponsorship

We launched micro sponsorship in early 2014 to sponsor events and activities that support the family and the community. Typically, we look for local causes where a small amount (£500 maximum) can go a long way. We welcome suggestions from our adviser network, as well as colleagues and partners, so if you have a great cause you’d like to put forward, please contact chris.morgan@ellipse.co.uk
