Emerald proudly sponsors the London Falcons

Our support for the Falcons and the brilliant sports men and women who make up their team, is just one of many community initiatives with which Emerald is proud to be associated.

Alongside great cover, when you purchase an Emerald product, take comfort in knowing that you are supporting worthwhile causes across the country. And sometimes, we participate like in the RedRun coming up in November.

AN EQUAL EXPERIENCE

Insurance brokers just haven't kept up. There's a lack of understanding on the reality about being HIV+ and the medication available today.

It was very quick and easy to get my cover and very cost competitive too. Even though we aren't LGBT we like the important work they are doing to end discrimination.

I've just bought home insurance from Emerald, very easy to use website and it's great that you can add legal cover too! It's about time we saw financial services companies reaching out to LGBT customers.

Emerald's website was easy to navigate, the policy was very clear and it took minutes to complete the transaction. In comparison to other products on the market it is good value for money.
