About La Playa

About La Playa

Founded in 1999, La Playa is an award-winning independent insurance broker authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. We have offices in London, Cambridge and New York, and our people are great to work with - but don’t just take our word for it....  

Our specialist teams are true experts in their fields, committed to outstanding service combined with first class advice and tailor-made insurance programmes for:

  • Science & Technology
  • Media & Digital
  • Arts & Entertainment
  • Fine Art
  • Private Client
  • Marine

Are we right for each other?
What sets us apart is the advice we offer: we really know our stuff. We listen, we analyse, we advise you on how to eliminate or mitigate your risk, and how to protect yourself against what remains. We may not be the cheapest option – so if an off-the-shelf policy and call centre queues work for you, be our guest. But if you need some advice on identifying your risk areas, how to structure your insurance most efficiently and effectively, and how to adapt it to the changing dynamics of your work or life – with hand-holding and close attention to detail - you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the family!

Our culture is also really important to us at La Playa - we hope you notice that our staff enjoy their work and appreciate how we're different from other places they've worked.

About La Playa Marine

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

Our Marine team has decades of experience in yacht insurance – we can guide you through the decision-making process, providing personalised risk advice and protecting your precious downtime. We provide a human face to make sense of marine insurance – real people who work with you at your pace, providing as much (or as little) detail as you wish.

But what makes us unusual is our “portfolio” approach, allowing you to combine your marine, home and vehicle insurance needs. This is no “bolt-on”: by streamlining specialist marine insurance with high net worth home and motor cover, we present an overall more attractive risk package to the insurer. This can mean better rates and time savings - just one payment and a single policy anniversary, minimising the possibilities for gaps in cover and maximising your peace of mind.

In-house Wealth Management

We also offer Investments & Pensions and Financial  Planning: a joined up approach with a team of advisers working for your best financial interests - all under one roof.
