Advice You Can Trust
…from an expert who understands you
Tech-based business is 24/7, global and borderless, exposing you to new risks and liabilities - often in unfamiliar places. As the law struggles to keep pace with technology, insurance can provide a real safety net if you fall foul of changing legislation.
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!
