What we do.
We’re connected.

Utilising Lloyd’s of London, other London markets and UK regional Insurers, we provide excellent access for US brokers to the most sophisticated and mature insurance market in the world, placing cargo and stock throughput cover for their clients beyond what is available to them in their own territories.

Working harder for you.

Established for over 20 years, IMS brings a wealth of technical ability to a wide range of risk challenges providing innovatively designed marine insurance programmes.
In an increasingly turbulent global marine market place, IMS gives essential guidance, strategy and smart solutions which translate in to providing your clients with excellent, comprehensive service

As global marine insurance markets have become more difficult and Insurers and syndicates strive for underwriting profitability, the value of our services has risen exponentially; we will discuss and understand your objectives on each and every case, provide realistic advice on how to achieve them and work hard to deliver results promptly and efficiently.

Flexible and fleet-footed.

At IMS, no request will be overlooked with indifference, and each enquiry will be approached with professionalism and the interests of the ultimate client in mind.

Once objectives are met, cover placed and relationships established, we will guide you and your client with smart, responsive and strategic advice and claims support through to equitable settlement of losses.

We find solutions for a wide range of industries, locations and limit requirements.

Our strengths.

Though we find solutions for a wide range of industries, locations and limit requirements,it is fair to say that we have found particular success in the
following categories of risk:

  • Foodstuffs
  • Refrigerated foodstuffs
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Chemicals
  • Mobile phones
  • Technology
  • Clothing and textiles
  • High value concentrations
  • Complex programs

We would never restrict ourselves to any particular trades, however, if it moves we want it!

Our markets are your markets.

The UK marine insurance market is broad and diverse and has the ability to cater for all shapes and sizes of risk.

Our secret sauce.

IMS has many routes in to the market, not least an increasingly rare line slip which provides greater flexibility and excellent cover combined with cost advantages and speedy turnaround for you and your clients.

Our ethos.

We are an advice driven business. This means treating every enquiry we receive, large or small, with respect and diligence; not thinking what is in it for us.

Our aim is to work with you to ensure smart, valuable solutions for your clients. If the solutions lead to risk being transferred to the UK, our support and advice will continue, including on claims.

The combination of effective strategy and shrewd negotiating provides the value we constantly seek. Once objectives are met we will guide you and your client with advice and support, including on claims through to equitable settlement of loss.
