“The Tech sector in the UK represents one of our country’s major growth areas for economic growth. From an insurance perspective Tech companies invariably look outside their home country for development opportunities, even though by traditional standards they may start off with modest revenues. This can represent a real challenge for their insurance brokers. Giles is one of the UK’s leading brokers, with 42 offices and 1,200 staff at present but we do not have a significant overseas presence. Membership of TechAssure for more than 5 years now, has enabled us to partner with specialist, successful and expert brokers across the world, and allowed us to seamlessly construct numerous otherwise complex global programs for UK based companies trading internationally. A particular delight with TechAssure is the depth of knowledge and talent coupled with the extraordinary decency of the entire group from executive management to the respective members. TechAssure is in our view the Tech insurance sector’s broking association expert without peer.”
