Terms of Business

What we are:

We are General Insurance Intermediaries. It is our responsibility to act on your behalf when we arrange Insurance.

Who we are:

Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services (Isle of Man) Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cherry Godfrey Holdings Limited and is registered with the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority as an insurance intermediary in respect of general insurance business.

Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services (Jersey) Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cherry Godfrey Holdings Limited and is regulated in Jersey by the Jersey Financial Services Commission.

Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cherry Godfrey Holdings Limited and is licensed by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

What we do:

We will advise you on your Insurance needs and will arrange Insurance cover with Insurers as appropriate. We act on your behalf and place your Insurance Risks with Insurance companies or Managing General Agencies. As well as helping you with any claims that you may have, we will help keep your policy up to date with any changes you may want to make.

The Companies we use:

Because our reputation matters to us we carefully select the Insurance companies that we use. When assessing customer demands and needs, we will either approach a number of Insurers on our panel of insurers or use a specific product from a single insurer. We do not act as Insurers nor can we guarantee the solvency of any Insurer. The suitability of any Insurer rests with you, so if you have any concerns regarding any Insurers chosen, please let us know.

If your Insurance cover is placed via another Insurance intermediary outside Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man, your premium (Insurance money) may be passed to that intermediary and will be subject to a legal and regulatory regime that is different from Jersey’s, Guernsey’s or the Isle of Man’s. In the event of the failure of the Insurance intermediary, your premium (Insurance money) may be treated differently than it would be if it were held by an Insurance intermediary in Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man.

How we get paid:

We receive Commission from the Insurers we place your risk(s) with that varies between Insurers and the products they offer. We will not place your risk(s) with any Insurer simply based on the level of commission they pay. On certain Risks where we feel it is in your best interests financially, we will charge a pre-agreed fee and then rebate the commission back to you.

We will be pleased to provide details of the amount of commission we are due to receive/have received from the placement of your Insurance.

Client Monies and Interest earned on them:

All clients monies held in relation to Insurance premiums are held in a separate client account. In some instances monies held are at the risk of the Insurers. In all cases client monies will be paid into the client account held with our Jersey, Guernsey or Isle of Man bankers prior to settlement with the Insurers. Any bank interest earned on your premium (Insurance money), while it is held on our Insurance Broking account, will be retained by us. In the event of this being greater than £20 per transaction we will obtain your consent to retain this interest.

Premium Funding:

You may wish to arrange to pay for your premium monthly, if so, an application will be made on your behalf to Cherry Godfrey Finance Ltd or Cherry Godfrey Finance (Isle of Man) Limited. In the event of there being one or more missed payments, Cherry Godfrey Finance Ltd or Cherry Godfrey Finance (Isle of Man) Limited are authorised to instruct Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services (Jersey) Limited, Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services Limited or Cherry Godfrey Insurance Services (Isle of Man) Limited to cancel the policy and provide a refund to reduce the indebtedness. Please note that there may be insufficient funds to clear the balance of the account and therefore any residual balance will become immediately due for settlement.


Most Insurance companies require you to notify them of a potential claim as soon as possible and the claim process information will be set out in the relevant Policy Schedule or Wording. If you are unsure where to find this information, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you if we make the claim notification for you or if your Insurer wants you to make contact with them directly to report the claim. Where we handle claims on your behalf, we will do so promptly and fairly. Any claim payments we receive for you, will be passed to you as soon as possible.

Your responsibility:

Because your Insurance is based upon the information that you give to us it is essential that it is totally complete and accurate. The duty to disclose information continues during the entire life of the policy and at renewal. It is essential that you ensure that you inform Cherry Godfrey of any changes affecting your Insurance immediately so that the details can be forwarded onto the Insurers. The responsibility for all answers or statements on proposal forms, claim forms or other relevant documents is yours. You must disclose any information that might affect the Insurer’s decision to accept the risk or the terms offered. Failure to do so at the start of the policy or when changes are being made to the risk may invalidate your cover, resulting in part, or your entire claim not being paid or your policy being cancelled.


We make an administration charge when particular events take place but if this is the case we will tell you before you commit to the Insurance. Please note that all fees, legal expenses and administration charges are additional to that required to secure the Insurance.
