White Horse Insurance
Ireland dac (insurer) is a member of the Financial Conduct Compensation Scheme
which may offer protection in the event that the Insurer is not financially
able to meet its liabilities in respect of your claim, the FSCS can cover up to
90% of the claim.

NOTE: For policies issued or re-issued after the end of the
transition period through an EEA establishment of a TPR firm, only UK risks are
FSCS protected (new policies relating to EEA, Channel Island, Isle of Man or
Gibraltar risks are not protected). Policies issued through an EEA
establishment are only eligible for FSCS protection where the firm does not yet
have a UK establishment (eg. where a TPR insurer in the process of setting up a
UK establishment issues policies through an EEA establishment after the end of
the transition period).”
