Here at NMU, we are firmly committed to delivering outstanding service – whether through our underwriting expertise, innovative products, or our ability to handle claims quickly and efficiently; broker satisfaction is always our top priority.

To that end, we are incredibly proud to be recognised as a 5-Star Insurer in the Insurance Business UK Marine Awards!

The research conducted by Insurance Business UK gathered insurer feedback from insurance brokers, evaluating work quality, specialty expertise, and client services across the following categories: freight liability, marine cargo, marine liability, hull and machinery, yachts and motor crafts, marine cargo, and marine trade.

Speaking on NMU’s performance in the awards, Head of Marine and Specialty, Guy Smith said,

“The main thing that distinguishes us in the market is our specialist team. We have incredible expertise in our team, and we use this experience to deliver consistent, high-quality service to brokers and policyholders, and in my mind, this is a real key aspect of what sets us apart.”

Managing Director, David Perfect added,

“At NMU, we have a very diverse and committed team who are focused on providing strong customer service backed by product expertise; factors that have allowed us to grow and succeed over four decades. Being recognised by our customers is the biggest compliment we can receive, and we are immensely grateful for everyone’s continued support.”
