At the end of what has been one of the most challenging years in the high net worth insurance sector for a long time, we take a look back at 2019 at Home & Legacy...

Recognition and strong service delivery

All of this has helped us improve efficiency in 2019, freeing up the time of our expert staff to help with your more complex enquiries.
