A new insurance broker has been established in the Edinburgh area to assist private clients with specialist insurance needs such as high value homes, prestige vehicles, art collections, wine cellars and jewellery. The company also aims to work with local schools and colleges to provide an alternative to university for young people.
“We are different from your usual insurance brokerage in that we want to give something back,” explains David Robertson, Managing Director of Prospero Insurance Brokers. “As we grow, instead of bringing in experienced staff or using recruitment agencies, we will form relationships with local schools and colleges to guarantee interviews for individuals who don’t necessarily want to go down the university route.”
Robertson, from Edinburgh, has longstanding experience in the insurance industry having spent the past five years working in a number of management roles. Most recently, he was Private Client Director at Towergate Insurance Brokers.
Prospero Insurance Brokers has teamed up with insurance broking and support services provider Momentum Broker Solutions, which has been supporting entrepreneurs and emerging small businesses within the sector for the past six years. As a result, the company will have access to first rate insurance placement and a leading broking platform, which will enable Prospero Insurance Brokers to focus on servicing its clients and growing the business.
“As trainees grow the company will prosper around them, creating an environment and culture that focuses on old fashioned customer service and getting to know your clients personally” concludes Robertson.
