About Us

In 1999 Mr Paul Matthews established Oakland Insurance with a goal in mind; to provide local solutions to the insurance needs of those living in Northern Ireland. He had a vision of a one-stop insurance shop that would provide local people with local staff - to ensure their needs were fully understood and insured.

Through meeting his customer’s needs he soon developed a large range of products from a variety of insurance companies enabling Oakland to be extremely competitive within the Northern Ireland Market place.

It was clear that there was a need for a local and competitive insurance broker throughout many areas of Northern Ireland and that customers liked to have a local face to pop in and see in times of change. Oakland therefore opened further branches throughout the province, boasting 5 branches today.

Oakland is a member of the Provincewide group of Insurance Brokers who have joined together to use their combined strength and size to provide excellent deals for customers in Northern Ireland. The Provincewide group has a turnover of over £50 million per annum in Northern Ireland. Please click the logo to find out more.
