We have also been working with AXIS on this project and are delighted to renew relationships with the excellent team they have assembled”.

He Said: “The recent acquisition has been very well received by our brokers and this just evidences the enhanced value and improved proposition we will be able to offer. This is just the first stage and we will continue to build on our offering both in terms of product and capabilities. The new facility for our main property and package classes will also allow us further opportunities to grow our other lines of business in motor and construction as we can accommodate a wider range of client”.
