As one of few remaining independent London wholesale brokers, we pride ourselves on our service levels, and doing what is best for our broker partners and their clients. We act with integrity and transparency, and are always accessible to discuss in detail the nature of a client’s fleet risk, and create bespoke solutions for how this risk can be placed into the London Market.
We have vast experience with difficult to place fleet risks and distressed fleet operations, and provide risk management advice to brokers on how to improve their clients’ risk profile. Improving a risk profile makes a claim less likely, and can save a client money on their premium. We have the capability to fully survey a risk and report back with risk management suggestions. By partnering with leading insurers that embrace technological methods to mitigate the risk of loss, there are often many ways a risk profile can become more attractive. This includes use of telematics, where driving data is reported back to the insurer through a fitted device, or adding modern cameras to vehicles, which can also encourage safer driver behaviour. We have key relationships with telematics and camera providers, and recommend driver training courses to demonstrate evidence of best practice. We have the ability to work with leading insurers on risk managed long term agreements that have proven results in improving risk performance.
Our product experts have deep, specialist knowledge in their field, built up over years of experience placing risks into Lloyd’s and the London Market. We love sharing our knowledge and that’s why we give you direct access to them.
