Art & Private Clients

Managing Director, Andrew Jobson says, “Ours is one of the most knowledgeable, dynamic and experienced teams in the London market. We offer independent advice and specialist insurance for those involved in the art world – from private collectors to auction houses, arts and antique dealers and museums or corporations with global reach. A lot of brokers don’t look after both private and commercial art. We do.”

“As well as meeting all our clients’ business and private insurance requirements, however complex the needs and demands, we can take care of their home insurance too. So if they wish, they can have the one stop. We are very experienced in looking after homeowners and luxury vehicle owners with higher values or complicated requirements.”

“Communication is key. We meet with our clients at their home or place of work and start with a blank piece of paper. We ask what they really need. Negotiating in person with underwriters at Lloyd’s and London market insurers, we arrange insurance solutions that perfectly accommodate the special requirements of each of our clients.”

“From the outset one of our expert team is made directly accountable to our client. So our clients have their own CBC advisor who is readily contactable via phone or email; who is dedicated to assisting them in every aspect of their cover, including working on their behalf in conjunction with the claims team.”

“If we don’t offer the personal care, we don’t differentiate from the big insurers. Like us, all the brokers may have the global reach but they don’t have the people who are accountable to the clients and who are available to the clients as we do.”

Corporate Risk

“Many of our clients have been with us for more than ten years and we have become trusted advisers to them. We offer a wealth of specialist experience, having worked with the market for over 30 years – and with energy and determination, we get the job done.” Says Earl Adams, Managing Director of Corporate Risk.

“For us, service and delivery are no. 1. We are very different to the large brokers. We never make assumptions but communicate and work closely with our clients. Flexibility, adaptability and a fast response to our clients’ changing needs are important to us.”

“We’ve built strong relationships with underwriters at Lloyd’s and London market insurers. These relationships are based on trust and hard negotiation on behalf of our clients, for whom we provide cover for professional risks, commercial property, and corporate risk.”

“Our clients include those in the leisure, manufacturing, retail, and construction industries and corporate businesses with international links. We also look after commercial wholesale clients. We’re accountable to all our clients – And we’re loyal.”

MGAs & Binding Authorities

Head of department, Lisa Sousa dos Santos says: “I love putting contracts together; I love the technical side of it. I also love the fact my job puts people together as it creates relationships between the underwriter and the cover holder. And if there’s a problem we enjoy solving it. I like the processing of figures. Everything about binders I absolutely adore. It’s the back office, but we keep the wheels in motion.”

Lisa has 19 years experience in providing specially tailored delegated binding authorities at CBC, and the company itself has over 30 years experience in this field. It enjoys extremely strong relationships with underwriters at Lloyd’s and London market insurers and equally strong relationships with each of its business partners.

CBC Jersey

Managing Director of CBC Jersey Si Aziz says, “It’s a joy to be able to negotiate directly with Lloyd’s of London, not to lose anything in transit, but to build client enquiries directly with the relevant underwriters rather than via third parties. It’s one of the things that makes us unique in Jersey at the moment.”

“I personally liaise with local trustees who act on behalf of their clients’ companies of which there are thousands. They come to us because of our past performance, our specialist experience and market knowledge.”

 “We handle a lot of property portfolios both commercial and residential that are held in offshore structures registered in Jersey or the Isle of Man and which involve a lot of specialist asset protection. This includes aircraft and pleasure craft marine, as well as overseas corporate structures.”

 “We also look after the professional risks of the company directors and the trustees themselves. We enjoy clear channels of communication as we work closely with our clients as well as with Earl Adams, CBC’s head of Corporate Risks. And we are always accountable to our clients.”

Motor Fleets

“We do not use computer driven quotes but communicate directly with our clients to discover their needs, in order to deliver independent advice and specially designed insurance cover.”

“From the start our clients work with a specialist advisor from our team of experts who assists their client in every aspect of their insurance, including working on their behalf with the claims team. The advisor remains accountable to their client – and readily contactable via phone or email.”

‘We have strong relationships with underwriters at Lloyd’s and the London market and can offer a wide range of services that include what are often considered difficult risks: from scaffolding and skip hire to couriers and haulage – including certain hazardous goods.”
