esure Group offers insurance products and peace of mind to over two million drivers, home owners, pet owners and holiday makers across the UK. The company was launched in 2001 as a joint venture between insurance guru, Sir Peter Wood, and Halifax plc. It launched Sheilas’ Wheels – a female-focused insurance brand – in 2005.
Following a management buy-out in February 2010, esure became an independent company which on 27 March 2013 was admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange. On 31 March 2015, following a period where esure had been a 50% shareholder in the company, Gocompare.com became a wholly-owned subsidiary of esure Group plc. On 3 November 2016 Gocompare.com was demerged from the business and listed separately on the London Stock Exchange, after a period of revitalisation under the Group.
