These principles are directly in line with our Partners& values and I am excited about the team becoming part of the Partners& family.”
Richard Bushnell, Managing Director, said: “Our decision to join forces with Partners& was an important move for us. We are proud of the business that has been created over the last 87 years and could only consider such a decision knowing that Phil and the team care as much for clients and people as we do.”

This move will present great career opportunities for our people, strengthen our access to insurer markets, and offer our clients access to a broader range of services to help them manage and mitigate their risks. We’re really delighted.”
