Simpson And Parsons


Simpson & Parsons Insurance Consultants Limited have been established in the heart of the English Lake District since 1983. Founded by John Simpson & John Parsons (The Johns) all those years ago, the dynamic duo worked hard to create a reputation for reliable, high quality service provided by knowledgable and qualified advisors.

Enthusiastic to support the local community and local businesses, the Johns were quick to identify the plentiful array of fine quality Hotels and Guest Houses in and around the Lake District and were keen to develop a product to suit the individual needs of these proprietors. They were inspired to design and implement an insurance product which would cover the essential and specialist needs of the Hospitality Industry whilst giving opportunity for variation in terms or policy parameters so that an Hotelier may be furnished with a policy which is entirely designed around them.

Included below is a small article from the local newspaper of yesteryear.

This 'tailor-making' approach to our product offering has been replicated with other areas of the business so that commercial and personal clients may enjoy the same benefits, we believe this has been the secret of our success in what has been an extremely competitive market  for many years. Simpson & Parsons  are now a sizeable local employer with over 30 employees. We are proud to say, some of these valued colleagues have been with us for over 20 years.

Based on the High Street of Windermere, we welcome any personal or commercial customers to visit us for a coffee, likewise we are well placed to visit our clients near or far should they require. We work closely with KNS Financial Planning whom specialise in Life Insurance, Investments and Tax Planning and share our desire to offer products and services that will benefit our clients, offering peace of mind, opportunities for improved wealth and protection from external threats.

In recent years the company has been under new direction in the form of Tim Parsons whom brings a fresh pair of eyes to a long established industry whilst sharing the core values that have made Simpson & Parsons the successful business it is today.

In the present day, we have the advantages of sophisticated technology and systems, retaining our concentration on personal service which has always been the hallmark of Simpson & Parsons’ business approach.

We believe we offer something truly different in todays market - a winning combination of experience, size, efficiency and service. This makes ours an insurance service that is largely unrivaled. Comprehensive cover, competitive premiums and complete service are the key to our success.

John Simpson

From Cheshire I moved to the Lake district (Ambleside) at the age of 20. Went into sales and then joined the Prudential in 1979 as the district agent for Windermere and surrounding area.
In 1982, I left the Prudential when I opened an office at 3 Westmorland House Bowness with one desk and a secretary.
Met up with John Parsons later in the year whom I had worked with at the Prudential and we went into partnership, Simpson and Parsons was then established and up and running in May 1983.
We grew to three office locations within the region but over time realised that by purchasing adjoining properties to our Windermere office we could cater for all our clients more effectively from a single larger location. I am proud to see the company continue to grow successfully for over 30 years.

John Parsons

Commenced a career in Banking in 1971. Institute of Bankers qualification achieved and diverted to Insurance Industry in 1975.
Achieved a management position and met John Simpson in 1981. Strange irony being  both John and I had worked for different Banks 100yards from each other in Macclesfield Cheshire back in 1972.
We did not know each other and had never met,  yet we became friends and colleagues in 1981when working for the same Insurance Company in the Lake District. Seemed like it was fate  and we both agreed we had more to offer if we became truly independent. The business was born in 1983.

Originally I joined the company as a Part time Administrative assistant for Simpson & Parsons following school graduation in 2000/2001
Attended University of West London - Business Management (Small Business Growth)
Full of admiration for what the Johns had acheived, I joined the company in a full time Account Handler role, quickly progressed to Account Executive dealing in Hospitality Trades, always maintaining a desire to run my own business. It turned out I was given an even better opportunity of having an existing business platform to run and grow, I progressed to a management position and later Director with the launch of a sister company specialising in the wholesale of Hospitality Insurance.
Now Managing Director of Simpson & Parsons with focus on continuing strategic growth of the company.
