About Us

Firstxtra Protect has been born from our passion for providing our clients with bespoke financial solutions for over 20 years from our sister company Firstxtra Financial Services.

With our Head office in Newbury Berkshire we can provide advice to any potential clients located in the UK by any way you would prefer to communicate with.

We agreed that we wanted to provide tailored insurance packages to suit all types of clients, from all walks of life, from company Directors to more Manual occupations. We strongly believe that alongside our knowledge and passion for the products that we provide the customer is at the heart of everything we do.

Firstxtra Protect continues with the original Firstxtra ethos of being a family run business with our MD Chris Hall overseeing both brands.
