Collingwood is a niche motor insurer that covers drivers who are not well provided for by mainstream insurers. Current target markets include taxi drivers (short and long term), learner drivers and drivers with impaired licences.

Souter Investments was part of a syndicate, led by JZI Capital, that gave a partial exit to the founder and CEO and also provided additional capital to allow Collingwood to grow its book of customers both in existing and new products.
