Amicus are a commercial insurance broker, formed in 2010 that specialises in the construction sector. We are a relatively young brokerage firm, but our Directors are extremely well known within the insurance industry and bring over 100 years of experience between them. At Amicus, we like to think that we bring a refreshingly modern approach to commercial insurance, whilst retaining the traditional values that are so important. We have succeeded by delivering what our clients want, when they want it and in a relaxed, but professional style. We have expanded in every single year since our formation and doubled our size in 2015.
Typically we like to work with companies located in England and Wales with annual turnover of between £1 million and £100 million who value great service and a personal approach.
Our business model
Every Amicus client is allocated a senior partner or director and it is this person they deal with for all their requirements. They do not get lost in a voicemail system, get passed around departments or find themselves in a call centre with an unknown voice at the end of the phone. This ensures our clients will always speak with someone who knows their business, whatever the nature of the query, and can make quick decisions with complete accountability.
The Personal Touch
We believe in the value of face to face meetings with our clients and from our offices in Surrey with its excellent road, rail and air links, we can reach anywhere in the UK easily. In 2017 we also opened up a second office in Northumberland to provide a more local presence to our many clients in and around the North East.
Our Approach To Business
We are specialists. We have an extensive network of underwriters who provide the specialist policies needed for the industry sectors we work in, and we know them very well. We know what they look for, we know the questions they will ask and we know their appetite for risk.We don’t go fishing in the market and hope we turn up a policy that will do the job. We gather all the information we need from you, go to the best providers for your specific requirements, get a quick yes or no response and get back to you. There is no fuss, no drama and no attempting to put a square peg into around hole. If we genuinely can’t find a solution that gives you what you need we will tell you (but that will not happen very often ).
