Broker Testimonials

GrovesJohnWestrup have been an excellent addition to our High-Net-Worth offering, filling a gap in progressive technology and not just quick underwriting but actual underwriting, a quality sadly lacking amongst many peers. The portal is quick and easy to use for both quotes and claims, meaning that we can revert to clients instantly in some cases, negating the need for diary notes and re-connecting with the client, whom are often as time poor as we are as brokers! The claims portal is particularly helpful for updating diarised updates internally and to the clients, as well as at weekends when, in other circumstances, we would need to wait until the Monday. Regarding underwriting, it is great to get a quick response on quotes, often a call within the hour. This is invaluable as clients have a habit of leaving things to the last minute, it means we can promise, with confidence, that we will have some options for them, by the end of the day for example. We have found the underwriting to be open-minded, with an attitude of wanting to write the risk, with fair terms and premium.

We are very pleased with the help and assistance that your team has provided since you granted us agency facilities back in September 2021. Direct access to Underwriters is very important to us and we appreciate that we can speak to you and your team as and when appropriate. The speed of response from your team is also a big factor in the development of our account. We are also very happy with your online quotation engine providing us with instant quotations or a referral option and, of course, offers a very useful document portal. The quality of the product and width of cover makes you our first choice for any risks that we feel will be suitable.

Vizion are delighted to be building a strong relationship with GrovesJohnWestrup. At a time when many markets are struggling, working with GrovesJohnWestrup is an absolute pleasure. Their team are talented, responsive and have a “can do” approach to underwriting. They look for reasons to write good business. They are proper underwriters and not constricted by the “computer says no”. The technology they have introduced for underwriting and claims is a breath of fresh air for a market that is still behind the times. Backed by the best possible insurer partner, reputationally and by financial strength, GrovesJohnWestrup look to have timed their launch perfectly and will undoubtably be a force to be recognised with in the years to come.
