Celebrating 130 Years

In 1887 the eighteen-year-old son of a London Hatton Garden diamond merchant (our founder Tommy March) experienced a ‘eureka’ moment. He realised that the jewellery trade he’d come to know through his Father’s business, was largely uninsured. His idea blossomed to become the UK’s best known firm of jewellery trade specialist insurance brokers (“Famous for Insuring Jewellery”) T H March.

A pioneer of specialist ‘Jewellers Block’ policies (underwritten by Lloyds), Tommy’s entrepreneurial vision is still flourishing 130 years on.

As appointed broker to many leading trade organisations including; The National Association of Jewellers, the National Pawnbrokers Association, the Company of Master Jewellers and the Giftware Association, T H March has continued to follow Tommy’s example by innovating, growing and diversifying. Today, Commercial, Personal Insurance and Financial Planning divisions are all part of the ‘T H March Group’. Tommy would definitely be proud!

In 2011 having satisfied rigorous criteria relating to professionalism, capability and ethics, T H March was awarded the prestigious status of Chartered Insurance Broker; the industry’s gold standard award.

2017 brought a fantastic start to our 130th anniversary year when independent customer service assessor; Investor in Customers (IIC) awarded us their highest ‘Exceptional’ 3 star rating.
