About Avantia Group
Avantia is an award winning and regulated financial services technology business. We have an audited track-record, and have an excellent reputation in the UK general insurance community.
Avantia knows, invests in, and trades on its strength. Our business has built deep expertise and knowledge within the residential property insurance market in the UK. We have together built valuable and unique IP to support this strength, and to capitalise on our rich domain knowledge and passionate workforce.
Our HomeProtect consumer brand, which covers both 'standard' and 'non-standard' household insurance, is currently Avantia's most successful asset. The cornerstone behind HomeProtect's success is the question set and its sophisticated scheme analysis, all underpinned by the proprietary IP that supports Avantia's business model.
We are expanding and development is a big priority for us. If you're looking for a progressive career in financial services or technology, then Avantia is your ideal partner.
