Ten reasons for choosing Erskine Murray

There’s no doubt about it, the insurance market is crowded, with many different brokers all competing for your business. So, why choose Erskine Murray? Here, we reveal the top ten reasons for selecting Erskine Murray as your broker of choice.

1) Chartered Insurance status
We’ve been awarded prestigious Chartered status by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) which means you’ll have experienced, dedicated insurance people looking after you, at a firm where continuous development is central to what we do.
2) Top 50 independent broker
We are a Top-50 independent broker, as detailed in Insurance Age 2019, giving us the scale and leverage to negotiate competitive and innovative cover on your behalf.
3) National broker with a local touch
With offices in the north, south and Midlands, we offer national reach, with regional account executives who are happy to visit you and review your insurances in person, ensuring we provide a personal touch.
4) Simple to use ‘self-service portal’
Investing in technology is at the forefront of what we do, ensuring we provide an easy-to-use, online client portal to view your documents, view claims and message us.
5) An in-house claims service
Our in-house claims team will guide you through the claims process, step-by-step, fighting your corner at every stage and taking the stress and hassle out of making a claim.
6) Industry-recognised achievements
In 2019, we were nominated by Insurance Age for ‘Commercial Lines Broker of the Year Award’, finishing ‘commended’ as a runner-up. In the same year, we were nominated by Insurance Times for their version of the award, finishing in 3rd place. With thousands of brokers nationwide, you can rest assured you are dealing with a quality operator.
7) A panel of quality, established insurers
We work with the UK’s leading composite insurers and have access to Lloyds of London for niche insurance risks.
8) Wide access to insurance products
Through our state-of-the-art electronic trading platform and niche markets, including Lloyds of London, we have access to a myriad of products, enabling us to cover some of the most unusual insurance risks.
9) Dedicated risk management
With our very own specialist risk management team, we offer a range of services that can help to mitigate your risk exposures, improving the desirability of your business to insurers.
10) Single point of contact
Whether you’re a business or personal client, you’ll have your own dedicated point of contact. We don’t operate as a call centre and pride ourselves on providing a personal, bespoke service.

The true worth of your broker is, of course, when things go wrong and you need to make a claim. With a dedicated, in-house claims department, we have the expertise and experience to handle your claim on your behalf and achieve the best possible settlement. Having said that, when it comes to protecting your personal assets or valuable business, you need to deal with a broker that has the professional know-how to look after your needs and ensure you are adequately covered. We like to think we score full points on both counts.
