About Us

No matter what it is you need insured – from your business to your home and anything in between – we can help.

Urban Insurance Brokers specialises in offering a wide range of short term insurance, from commercial assets and car insurance through to specialist insurance such as liability insurance and contract works cover.

Our company was formed in 2011 when a group of five independent short term insurance brokers, some who have been in operation for over 20 years, decided to join forces. With the combined networks of five businesses now at our fingertips, we were immediately more affordable thanks to increased economies of scale.

Our expanded network also meant we could create a broader base from which to attain better business. Over the years, we’ve seen exponential growth through this greater market access, in addition to several acquisitions.

Today, Urban Insurance Brokers consists of five operational directors: Jono Soames, Andre Coetzee, Stuart Riley, George Pienaar and Eddie Scott. Together with three account executives, we manage our two Gauteng branches in Pretoria and Randburg.
