About Avantia
Avantia is a regulated financial services technology platform and risk analytics business that owns successful and profitable B2C general insurance consumer brands.
The home insurance industry has a massive opportunity to use technology to provoke change designed to benefit consumers. Avantia has built a business with consistent and sustainable growth and profitability by using technology, algorithm compilation, and vast data libraries to understand complex risk without human intervention.
With these tools we are able to price residential property risks in a superior and more cost efficient manner than the industry. This creates a valuable proposition for all of our customers, and competitive advantage over our peers.
Avantia supplies the rating intelligence and online trading platform to home insurance brands including HomeProtect - the UK’s premier provider of specialist residential property risk insurance products and services.
Avantia provides the technology platform able to cover complex risk profiles across the entire spectrum of standard to non-standard risk. This is possible because Avantia maintains the most effectively rated and market-leading quote return profile of any household property insurer in the UK.

Avantia has invested heavily in R&D and technology environments, and owns and develops valuable and unique IP to capitalise on our rich and nuanced domain knowledge.

Avantia is owned by its management team, who are backed by ECI Partners - one of the longest established and most successful private equity groups in the UK.

Residential property insurance in the UK is a £6+ billion market, offering vast opportunities for diversification and growth. Numerous insurance sectors exist that are either based around or layered upon residential property insurance.

A uniquely successful home insurance brand established with the principle of putting consumers first. Every single day, hard working people are rejected for home insurance. The insurance industry works out how to exclude people who don’t fit their ‘average’ profile. In the eyes of many older insurance companies this is the best way to improve their profits.

HomeProtect is different. HomeProtect believes that everyone has the right to protect his or her home. Using the Avantia residential property insurance risk analytics, pricing, and trading platform, HomeProtect matches the highest levels of affordable yet expansive cover to every risk type. In fact, HomeProtect’s home insurance product has been independently verified with a Defaqto 5-star rating; that’s the highest score available. Using the Avantia approach, HomeProtect aims to offer immediate cover, online, no matter the circumstance.
