For all life’s uncertainties
Let our team of fully qualified insurance specialists show you how to protect you and your family’s financial future against events that are outside your control. We believe there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to protecting loved ones which is why we personalise every recommendation to fit our clients’ attitude to risk and budget precisely. Our objective is to help our customers to understand the size of the risk they face and how they can make an informed choice about how to mitigate those risks with a sustainable and affordable premium. We have access to a wide range of insurance products, such as life and critical illness cover, income protection and family protection.
Assessing individual risk
Our insurance service starts with an individual assessment of your needs and risks. This helps us identify the most appropriate types of protection for you. Your adviser conducts a detailed analysis to ensure nothing is missed.
Your trusted insurance partners
Our experienced and trusted advisers work with specific insurers to ensure our clients consider the most suitable and reliable options available to them, for complete peace of mind.
Protecting your family’s future
Our advisers will only offer personalised recommendations that prioritise your family’s well-being, goals and expectations. This is essential in choosing the correct level of cover and financial protection for you and your loved ones.
Neutral and objective - always
Our protection advice service is always offered with 100% transparency. This guarantees that clients are only being recommended the most suitable options.
Expect the unexpected
Critical illness, income protection, family income benefit and life assurance are vastly different – do you know the important differences?
Tailored coverage for life’s events
Our specialist advisers only provide tailor-made insurance advice based on you and your family’s circumstances and preferences. We also account for future plans you may have to ensure that your cover is suitable today and in the future. Our team is always ready to help should you need to review and adjust your cover for unforeseen reasons, which is highly recommended for any change in circumstances.
Selecting protection levels
One of the greatest benefits of using a protection adviser is that you get support in selecting the most suitable product and level of cover. The level of protection you need now and, in the future, should be seriously considered when selecting cover, and it is an important part of the service you receive. Not getting this right from the outset can have damning consequences should you need to make a claim.
Fully understanding your policy
It’s of paramount importance that you understand exactly what your policy does and doesn’t cover, including any exclusion periods. We make it our mission to ensure you understand your policy in full. We do this by avoiding confusing jargon and making ourselves readily available to answer all your questions. We know that insurance products can be confusing, but they don’t have to be.
Protection advice, whenever you need it
Our team aren’t just here to help you choose the correct insurance product and level of cover. Our advisers and services are at your disposal for the long run, allowing you to review existing policies and adjust levels of cover when required. This is an important aspect of our protection services which many clients take advantage of for ongoing peace of mind. Should you ever need to make a claim on any policy taken out with our guidance, we are on hand to help and support you. From consultation to claim, James Leighton is by your side every step of the way.

What our customers say
Can’t express enough my gratitude for James Leighton Financial Services. We’ve used them for the past 5 years and wouldn’t look elsewhere now. No matter who I deal with, they’re always super friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and willing to help wherever possible. A special thanks to Jamie Cox, Emily Vincent & Leanne Morris for their most recent work with our life insurance & remortgage process. (Usually a process I’d absolutely dread having to go through, but these guys make it really easy and stress-free). Highly recommend!
