Delivering Value to Clients

Our mission is to help clients protect what matters most to them, as a trusted advisor and delivering a superior client experience through a strategic, holistic, and specialist approach. Our specialists help build business and individual resilience, by acting to fully understand and manage our clients’ risk profiles.

We place over $15B in insurance premiums and are a top player in our targeted industry and product line segments. Our consulting business operates independently of the brokerage business to address complex business challenges, and is amongst our fastest-growing segments.  

Our value stems from tapping into the resources and collaborative culture that has always set us apart. Caring for our clients is fundamental to everything we do.
