About Us

Founded in 1962, the company rapidly developed its client base and soon became a well renowned insurance outlet in the area offering a wide range of insurance products tailored to suit the requirements of both retail and commercial policyholders.

The driving principles behind the company have been its independence and professionalism in an ever changing and challenging industry. An original member of the Insurance Brokers Registration Council (IBRC), and in 1987 the company was a founder member of the Institute of Insurance Brokers (IIB) with the aim to promote the service standards and the independence of the Insurance Broker. In 2005 the company became authorised and regulated by The Financial Services Authority (FSA) - now Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) - to conduct insurance broking business within the regulatory requirements as documented by the FSA who regulated the general insurance industry with effect from 14th January 2005 until its replacement by the Financial Conduct Authority on 1 April 2013

Our in-house integrated broker systems allows us to quote instantly for many different policy types - from retail to commercial - that will meet our policyholders needs and demands. The company's outlook requires high standards and we have identified the specific needs of our commercial policyholders. We particularly specialize in commercial insurance policies and such policyholders would deal directly with a Director - therefore providing the essential one on one business relationship that we feel commercial policyholders require as part of their on going business insurance needs. This personal, professional service has enhanced our commercial position within our established client base, and as a result our company provides insurance policies for clients throughout the local business community, Yorkshire and other regions in the country.

Donald Schofield (Pontefract) Limited continues to be a 100% independent and family owned business.
