We are part of the Pinnacle Pet Group (PPG) – a pan European fully integrated pet insurance and health services platform which was set up as a joint venture between JAB Holding Company and BNP Paribas Cardif.  PPG’s ambition is to create the leading pet insurance and health services platform globally.

Over the last two years, through the success of our partnership strategy, which includes Sainsbury’s Bank, PDSA and Post Office, we’ve doubled the size of our business.  We have ambitious growth plans through UK and European partnerships, and own brand and a clear vision for the development of our customer and partner proposition.
