Your home is probably your biggest investment – and most valuable asset. So, you want to be sure that your home insurance protects what matters most.
FOCUS are expert home insurance brokers with a team of specialists that can provide tailor-made home buildings and contents insurance. Based in Oxford, FOCUS specialise in high-value home insurance and the additional concerns and risks that can arise.
We understand that every home is different and every person’s possessions are unique. Therefore, we don’t expect you to have an off-the-shelf home insurance package. We take the time to evaluate individual circumstances and provide bespoke home insurance solutions.
We're also on hand to help in the event of a claim. Our dedicated team are happy to provide assistance and ensure that any claim made is settled quickly and efficiently - and deal with any queries.
Research consistently shows that millions of homes in the UK are underinsured.
As our personal wealth increases, we tend to own larger houses and acquire possessions with higher values that don’t fall within the limits of standard home insurance policies. Buying an "off the shelf" policy online is unlikely to provide the cover you need.
Quite often garages, attics, and outhouses are full of large, high-value objects that get missed when assessing your contents, such as bikes and tools, and skiing, camping, sporting and gym equipment. Boundary walls, gates, fences, outbuildings, garden ornaments, swimming pools, tennis courts or car parking are often forgotten when considering what’s needed to reinstate a property to its original state.
Many people have little understanding of how valuable their general household contents are – let alone expensive items of jewellery, watches, antiques or pieces of art that have been acquired over the years. Take into consideration the changes in valuation and it becomes very easy to be under-insured.
Protect against the risk of a cyber attack on your home network
In the modern world in which we now live, with connected homes and the internet of things, the risk of being hacked is ever more challenging- and has the potential of causing serious damage - not just to your finances, but also to your public reputation.
Cyber risk management and insurance solutions go hand in hand to keep your lifestyle, family, and reputation safe. All too often the headlines are highlighting the unfortunate stories of those whose lives have been invaded by hackers, often with considerable financial losses involved.
Cyber insurance can now form part of your home insurance plan and provide peace of mind.
Our experienced team work with our clients to ensure that the right cover is provided - at the right cost.

We have been customers of FOCUS for many years now and have always found their service to be superb, offering a truly personal service. Earlier this year there was a flood at a property we owned on a Sunday evening. Despite it being the week-end, FOCUS responded to our e-mails instantly and reassured us within the hour.
