Independent Financial & Insurance Services

About Us

We are a family run and client focussed practice. We take pride in what we do within our community.

Our History.

Rickard Lazenby was established in 1985 when Terry Hodges resigned from his position as managing director of a Lloyd’s broking company in London to form his own business.

From the beginning the company has always enjoyed a diverse spread of business with local commercial and agricultural clients but also has involvement in overseas areas.

In 1989 Rickard Lazenby added an independent financial services arm to help provide additional investment and mortgage services to its clients.

We remain a family run and truly independent business offering comprehensive insurance, financial and mortgage services to clients throughout the UK.

Today, Rickard Lazenby has a large, national client base, but we remember our roots, and we continue to serve and support the local community, businesses and farmers, as we have done since 1985.

As part of that commitment, we often support and sponsor local fund-raising events and organisations such as point-to-points, ploughing matches and local sports teams.

If you have any ideas for how we can support our local community, please do get in touch.


We don't have any vacancies or career opportunities currently available. However, if you believe that you have invaluable experience that we should consider, we welcome you to get in touch.
