Wanna Insure


You might have heard of us in the past as Wanna Insure.  Don't worry: Ignite is the same people, same tech, just a whole lot better looking

Wanna Insure


You might have heard of us in the past as Wanna Insure.  Don't worry: Ignite is the same people, same tech, just a whole lot better looking

Story of Wanna Insure

Ignite's journey began in 2009 as Wanna Insure Ltd.  

Since beginning trading in 2011 as Wanna Insure Ltd we've grown in size and ambition all the time. 

In 2015, with a client list that had trebled in size over the past two years, and with a move into larger offices in central Manchester, we decided to say goodbye to Wanna Insure the brand.  

Hopefully people won't ask us to spell Ignite quite as much as we had to spell Wanna Insure!
