We provide broking services, risk management and data-driven strategy

You can count on us for technical insight, market know-how, and a bit of imagination. 

This goes beyond just buying insurance. 

We see ourselves as a risk partner: helping you limit your exposure wherever possible, and fighting on your side when you need to make a claim.

Our aim is to free you from the financial and mental burden of risk

You need competitive, tailored insurance, risk planning and claims support, from people who know your sector inside out. We can provide all of this to you.

Managing your reputation around the insurance markets

We work with insurers to represent you in the best possible light. 

Access beyond the mainstream 

Insurance you see online is the tip of the iceberg - we access the whole market, not just the obvious insurers.  

Cutting costs through cutting risks  

We help you learn from the experience of others with up-to-the-minute thinking on risk management trends.

Claims advocacy

We advocate fearlessly on your behalf.

Helping good decision-making 

We explain, advise and simplify; we show you the pros and the cons of your options. 

Protecting your wealth and employees

From balance sheet protection plans to employee wellbeing programmes and cyber security, our advice protects your business and its employees. 

We're here to challenge incumbency and complacency

We invest time in getting to know your true risk picture and where needed, bringing an international perspective, to help you understand emerging risks, local market nuances, and other global factors that influence modern risk management. 

For businesses large and small, the ethos is the same: make the process as simple as we can, and get you competitive pricing without compromising on coverage. 

Alternative risk solutions and self-insurance mechanisms

For businesses of a certain scale, there are other options. You may be able to form a company or trust to handle risk management in-house.

We help you get everything in order, with the right data, governance and day-to-day management to make it work.

Claims Advocacy

One of the most important things a good broker does is manage claims for you, speaking on your behalf and persuading insurers to see things your way.
