SPB in brief
SPB is a broker-manager specialising in affinity insurance set up in 1965. From the outset, we have sought to develop white-label insurance and assistance solutions for major partners.
Historically specialised in banking activities, SPB has gradually diversified its offering. Today we cover not only banking products (payment instrument insurance, savings protection, etc.) but also consumer goods (mobile phone and gadgets, travel and sports equipment, etc.), household items (insurance for white-brown-grey goods failure, electrical insurance, etc.) and life events (pension assessment, borrower insurance, death, private events, etc.).
Today, SPB partners more than 100 leading brands across France and Europe:
- Telephone operators and sellers
- Specialist distributors and retailers
- Food retailing
- e-commerce sites
- Banks and financial institutions
- Insurers and reinsurers
- Energy and water suppliers
- Travel and leisure firms
These companies distribute SPB solutions under their own brands and through their proprietary sales networks, thus expanding and differentiating their offering. Solutions are developed on a case-by-case basis to meet each partner’s specific needs. SPB is able to provide a one-stop service (insurance product design, pricing, placing of risk, advice on distribution methods, sales network coordination, contact with policyholders, technical reporting, brokerage distribution, operational marketing, recycling damaged products, etc.).
The company has more than 1,000 employees across Europe.
