We first appointed [Partners&] in 2010 to benchmark our insurances against our multinational broker. The savings made were such that it was decided to move the company’s business across [to Partners&] that year. Since then, our relationship has grown, and we have been assisted in the settlement of a complex claim made against the company to the full satisfaction of the board of directors. We have been impressed with their personal service and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.
When renewals are due, they comprehensively research the market place and provide a report with their comments and recommendations as to the various options, further when it comes to any claims against losses or incidents they are helpful and supportive in achieving settlement. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to any third party.
The experts at [Partners&] understand our needs perfectly. Their staff know the ins and outs of our complex group and each year handle our renewal with efficiency including obtaining competing quotes to see if we are getting the most efficient cover.
