Willis and Towers Watson have merged. Visit willistowerswatson.com


Hughes-Gibb has over 50 years' experience in bloodstock insurance and our other specialists are all industry professionals who have honed their relationships and knowledge through many years of working within their respective marketplaces. Our longevity is testament to our enduring commitment to the changing needs of our clients, both new and old. We constantly strive to provide innovative and cost-effective insurance and risk management solutions for clients around the globe.


We have fostered relationships with our markets over many years and deal with specialist insurers who understand specialist agricultural industries and the needs of our clients. The quality of the business we place, our reputation for integrity and our specialist knowledge help us to obtain the best terms and the most comprehensive coverage available.


Willis has over 400 offices in 120 countries. By virtue of our global presence and the fact that Willis as a group places approximately $45 billion of premium into the global insurance market each year, Hughes-Gibb can access insurers that are unavailable to our competitors. This means that we are able to provide a better range of options and in many cases, more competitive quotes.


The ultimate test of insurance is how quickly and effectively it responds when you need to make a claim. However, the process begins long before losses occur. We endeavour to ask our clients the right questions before any policy is purchased and work closely with all parties involved in the claim process, including veterinarians, loss adjusters and insurers, in order to ensure prompt agreement and payment of claims.


The Willis Security Department constantly monitors the financial strength of all markets we utilize, rejecting any insurance company whose financial position or performance is inconsistent with the requirements of our clients. This is an area of increasing importance given the impact of the global financial crisis on insurance companies.


The increasingly global nature of bloodstock and agricultural industries, and the diverse requirements of our worldwide clientele mean that we are continuously at work on product development and are able to provide policies that are specifically tailored to the budget and coverage requirements of each client. In a world where business can now be transacted seamlessly across continents, the insurance intermediary adds value by understanding global markets and making sure all appropriate options are presented to each client. This task is made easier by the significant investments in technology that Willis has made in order to provide a truly efficient and streamlined client service platform.
