One day soon all brokers will be named after species of tuna. Improbable as this might sound, the evidence is mounting. The latest instance of this phenomenon comes with the news that Admiral has sold its Italian price comparison business Chiarezza to Paris-based Blackfin Assurance Courtage.

The Blackfin, fact fans, is a smaller cousin of the Bluefin, which grows to a maximum length of one metre and feeds mostly on tiny stomatopod larvae. Although they won’t turn their snouts up at the occasional juvenile squid. As, indeed, who would!

Admiral claims the sale will have no impact on its Italian motor insurance business ConTe which means with you or (read this carefully) count, depending on whether or not you recognise the intended function of a capital T four letters in (after the space-omitting fashion increasingly popular with US-based latins with multi-word family names).

In reality, of course, the comparatore is named after Juventus’ former captain and current manager Antonio Conte (Tony the Count), an iconic figure in Turin, hometown of Italy’s motor manufacturing industry.


What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
