About Beagle Street

Who are Beagle Street

Our story starts in 2012 when Matthew Gledhill, the Managing Director of the company tried to get Life Insurance. Matthew found out the hard way about how longwinded and complicated the process of taking out a Life Insurance policy can be: it took him 6 weeks! Beagle Street was created to ease and shorten the process of buying life insurance, in order to ensure loved ones are economically protected. Since our birth our aim is to make Life Insurance simple and more accessible to everyone in the UK.
