About Us

Decades of experience.

Founded in 1972 as R Collins, we have provided insurance solutions for thousands of businesses and individuals over the years and enjoy genuine relationships with our clients.

In 2019, R Collins became Lagentium Insurance Brokers which better matched our vision and our goals. We take our name from the Roman for our home of Castleford, where many of our clients are based.

Packing a punch.

Whilst we know Castleford and the wider area very well, we are not limited in choice of insurer. Our membership to Broker Network gives us access to some of the most competitive markets out there.

Consistency is key.

We know that solid relationships depend on consistency. Our team has been working together for decades as we pool all this experience to deliver a truly remarkable insurance service.

Supporters of The Prince of Wales Hospice.

Lagentium are proud to support The Prince of Wales Hospice which cares for patients suffering from cancer, motor neurone disease, and chronic heart and lung disease. As ‘Club 5’ members, we help to ensure they can continue their invaluable work.
