About Us

Our Philosophy

It is our role to assist high net worth clients and professionals in finding the best possible short-term insurance – providing excellent cover, cost effective premiums and exceptional service.

By marketing our product exclusively to selected good risk clients, we maintain the best insurance products available. Future premium increases are based on the claims history of a brokerage and by not including the losses of the general public, we protect our competitive rating structure.

By having close relationships with leading insurance companies we strive to produce information fairly and promptly and to settle claims in a like manner.

We understand that the professional market consists of individuals of the highest calibre who have excelled in their fields. It is our challenge to effectively communicate with our clients, professionally and honestly, to devise the best solutions and to provide the best service.
