The Special Risks team fully understand that the role of an insurance broker involves much more than the placement and servicing of insurance policies and the collection of claims.

The provision of a quality ‘value added’ service is an area in which we believe we excel and is a differentiator between us and our competitors.

Our first objective is to understand the operations and requirements of our clients, which enables us to tailor the service that we provide to them and then to meet their expectations of us as their consultant and partner.

Our Marine Special Risks team has a wealth of experience in servicing the requirements of our worldwide clients – in excess of 200 years in our London based core service team alone, and is enhanced by the expertise of our Special Risks colleagues globally.
