Fidelius Insurance Services Ltd, one of the leading independent insurance brokers in the South West, have announced they are changing their name to

Isca Barum Insurance Brokers Ltd from Monday October 3rd.


Fidelius Insurance Services have offices in Exeter and Barnstaple, providing commercial and personal insurance solutions.

They were previously a division of the Fidelius Group, but in August 2015 the decision was made to sever the shareholding connection and become a separate company.

Bruce Archibold, Managing Director of Isca Barum Insurance Brokers Ltd (formerly Fidelius Insurance Services Ltd), says, ‘We felt we required a greater focus on purely insurance activities and to reinforce our independence in the market, an important benefit to our clients. The name change to Isca Barum Insurance Brokers helps us to achieve this ’.


The company stresses that the new name of Isca Barum Insurance Brokers Ltd is the only change being made.  The board of directors – Managing Director Bruce Archibold, Commercial Director Simon Gray, Key Client Director Sarah Page, and Finance Director Andy Puleston – all with many years’ experience within the business, will remain the same, as will the staff who have unrivalled levels of expertise in the market.  Indeed, even the office addresses and phone numbers in Exeter and Barnstaple are unchanged.


Bruce Archibold goes on to say: ‘Most importantly, our clients will find their experiences of dealing with us will be as positive as ever, with our ability to offer tailored insurance solutions for them through our unmatched experience and expertise, and our exceptional levels of personal client service – all core to what Isca Barum is about.

Our longstanding membership of the Bluefin Broker Network also continues, as it gives us the power of having national broker backing, with the freedom to keep our local broker attitude. ’


The name “Isca Barum” comes from the historical names of both Exeter (Isca) and Barnstaple (Barum), and reflects the company’s deep ties to the business communities of both cities and to the Southwest in general. The Directors of Isca Barum Insurance Brokers Ltd have all lived and worked in the region for decades, and felt strongly that they wanted a name that would honour that history while still being contemporary and vibrant.  Their new logo does the same, demonstrating the company’s forward-looking and positive direction, while retaining the colour orange to acknowledge their past links to Fidelius.


‘We are entering an exciting era for us as Isca Barum Insurance Brokers, which will see us going from strength to strength’ Bruce stated. 

Indeed, things are looking better than ever for the new Isca Barum Insurance Brokers Ltd, and they look forward to serving the region for many years to come.
