After a career spanning 30+ years as a well-respected equity trader, running a private hedge fund, Simon moved into the insurance sector and co-founded Active Cover. Due to his love of sport, Simon strives to help amateur and professional sports people gain the support they need, allowing a stress-free recovery following an injury.
Simon enjoys long distance cycling and playing tennis, as well as a wide variety of leisure activities.
Graeme specialised in the private medical insurance industry for many years, winning national awards, where he built strong relationships with insurers and clients alike with the primary aim of helping people. With this valuable experience and knowledge, Graeme was in an ideal position to forge ahead with Simon to create a sports insurance product they could be proud of.
Graeme spends his spare time keeping fit, with a passion for krav maga & paddle tennis.
Lifelong friends and keen sportsmen, Simon and Graeme have suffered sporting injuries over the years and the cost of their sports insurance was increasing with age.
It occurred to them, how could they develop a product that was designed around the amateur sports person, affordable to buy, covers a range of injuries, includes most sports and saves £100s or possibly £1000’s for private treatment quickly, anywhere in the UK.
After two years in development, Active Cover was created; a carefully designed and simple multi-sport injury insurance to help adults and children alike.
Active Cover is underwritten by one of the largest insurers in the UK, Chubb European Group SE.
