Our Commercial team has over 15 years' experience in creating insurance and risk management programmes for Higher Education establishments and Independent Schools. With our Head Office in Cambridge, we have strong connections with the University and with most of the Cambridge Colleges.
We use insurers that understand the Colleges and Independent Schools sector and select them based on their financial strength and reputation for dealing with claims fairly and promptly. We provide a full professional advisory service acting specifically as your agent, not the insurer.
Our whole team is Chartered Insurance Institute qualified and the team leaders hold the highest professional qualifications and have many years experience of working in the insurance industry.
The same dedicated team of brokers will work with you on your account from start to finish, so we can provide advice based on a detailed knowledge of your particular insurance needs.
Our claims handlers provide immediate post-loss advice and arrange visits where required. We will present claims information to the insurer and negotiate on your behalf to ensure that a fair settlement is achieved. Our partner insurers have given us authority to pay many types of claims which helps speed up the settlement process.
Within each of the following categories, several different types of insurance policies are available and a typical college or school insurance portfolio will include many of them. We will assess your particular needs and design the most appropriate insurance programme.
May Balls and other college events throw up considerable problems for insuring the performers or attendees and related contractual issues. We are very experienced in managing and advising clients in this area and we offer a full contract review service. The contracts many Ball Committees are asked to sign impose huge liabilities and undertakings on both the college and its insurer, which can be avoided. We will review the terms of the contracts, make sure the insurance of the Ball contributors is adequate and advise accordingly. This not only helps the committee, but also saves money and protects the college from unwanted additional liabilities.
