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.
Whilst we know Castleford and the wider area very well, we are not limited in choice of insurers. Our membership to Bravo Networks gives us access to some of the most competitive markets out there.
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.
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.
Along with my wife, I acquired the Company in December 2015. Cert CII qualified as well as being Diploma PFS Qualified, I have worked in Financial Services for over 30 years
I joined in 2014 from a marketing background and took on all aspects of Personal and Commercial Lines insurance. I now work part time following the birth of my son in 2021
I joined Lagentium in August 2022 looking for a career change, I am excited to start my journey into the insurance world with a great group of people.
With over 30 years’ experience, I started at R Collins & Co as the office junior in 1985 and worked my way up the ranks until finally purchasing the business in December 2015 before we rebranded to Lagentium in 2020. I enjoy travelling to see clients in different sectors of business and helping them with all their insurance requirements. I feel my team provide a good service and strive to help all our client to obtain the best cover for their needs.
I joined the company in 1997, and have over 25 years’ experience in the Insurance Broking industry. My main role now within the company is looking after Insurer and Client Accounts and dealing with day to day insurance enquiries.
From university I started work at what was then Norwich Union before joining Lagentium in 2003 (when it was then R Collins & Co.). Working my way through the ranks I now specialise in Commercial Insurance of all types and became the Office Manager in 2015, followed shortly by becoming an Associate Director in 2016.
I joined the team in 2010 after having a break from insurance to have my children. My main role is dealing with all Personal Line renewals but also deals with anything else that is required.
In the last year I have needed two types of business insurance, first as a sole trader then as a limited company. I told Tracey what I needed in terms of insurance and she came back to me within an hour with a very competitive price. Once limited we needed different insurance and Tracey again quickly found me the best insurance at the best price.
I recently had the pleasure of dealing with R Collins & Co. I found them to be very friendly and professional in their approach and I particularly liked the fact that when they said they would ring me back, they did - a rarity these days.
As a network marketing company I’m not a conventional type business so Tracey fully researched what would be most suitable. She then offered two levels of cover and actually advised that the cheaper policy was perfectly adequate to cover the needs of my business. I have no hesitation in recommending Tracey and her team.
I contacted R Collins and Co to quote for our office insurance. Not only did they save us money but the service was superb. They replied to all emails promptly, gave excellent advice and were generally very pleasant people to deal with. I would recommend them without hesitation. It feels great to support a local business and get a great deal in the process.
Tracey and her team are professional, customer focused and what makes them stand out from their competitors is that they genuinely care. Tracey went over and above in sourcing JS Recruitment a competitive Business Insurance policy which was requested at short notice and subsequently resulted in a substantial cost saving to our business.
I would like to thank you for the outstanding service that you have given. You quoted Go Media for Business and Contents Insurance with exceptional thoroughness, spotting mistakes made by our previous insurers which resulted in better, more accurate cover and ultimately a cost saving. I will have no hesitation in recommending you with enthusiasm.
As the time approached for my house insurance renewal, I spoke to Tracey for a quote. Within less than 10 minutes Tracey had managed to find me a suitable quote and save me a substantial amount on last year's fee.
I recently purchased a VW Transporter van via my business. When I checked the usual comparison sites, quotes were coming in at over £1,800 per year and R Collins managed to secure a quote which saved me £792 per year. I was delighted with the service as R Collins sorted this instantly for me and also thrilled at the savings.
