Our Culture : People First

  • We’ve travelled far since opening our first office in 1994. Back then we were local experts based in London, with direct access to the world’s biggest insurance market.
  • We’re still locals, and we still deliver the right advice and the right insurance to our clients. But now, we’re local all over the world.
  • With 15,000 global colleagues and a partner network spanning more than 100 territories, we are the largest independent insurance broker in the world.

But our values haven’t changed since day one, when we set out to create a company grounded in :

  • An employee-ownership model
  • Aligned external investors
  • The trust and integrity born of friendship
  • Expertise
  • Independence

Our focus on being a people-first business has always been at the very heart.

Our vision was to create an independent business with a unique culture; one that would survive and thrive as a business controlled by the people working for it.

Our employee ownership model sets us apart in the market.

It’s created a culture of collaboration and innovation, where we’re driven to think bigger and empowered to challenge convention.

Our flat structure and entrepreneurial spirit help us attract the best people and empower them to be the best version of themselves.

And when we bring in and nurture great talent, more follows. That makes us better and that’s better for everyone.

Diversity & Inclusion

We consider our people our chief competitive advantage and as such we treat colleagues, candidates, clients, and business partners with equality, fairness and respect, regardless of their age, disability, race, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, marital status or family circumstances.
