Quick Sure Insurance Company Ltd has failed
Quick Sure Insurance Ltd, a Gibraltar-based insurance company, was declared in default recently (Friday 24 January 2020) by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
Quick Sure was an online car insurance provider of a range of motor insurance products in the UK.
FSCS is working closely with Quick Sure’s joint administrators, Grant Jones and James Oton, as well as the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission to understand the impact of the firm going into administration.
Quick Sure ceased writing new business on 31 March 2017 and has no unexpired policies.
Jimmy Barber, Chief Operating Officer at FSCS, said:
“FSCS is working closely with the administrators to make sure that any eligible policyholders are protected. While we do not believe there are any live policies, should anyone need to make a claim they should follow the instructions set out in their Quick Sure documentation.
“To check on the status of an existing claim, they should continue to liaise with the claims handler who was previously dealing with their claim.”
Further information from the administrators is on the Quick Sure website at www.quicksure.gi.
