Bell & Clements started placing binding authorities over 30 years ago and this service remains at the very heart of what we do. We retain many of our original customers to this day, which is testimony to our commitment to our business partners. We were pioneers in the binding authority business, and remain focused on further developing this specialist field.

Today we provide delegated binding authorities on behalf of Lloyd’s, European and International markets. We have the ability to seamlessly combine multiple markets to expand the binding authority capacity provided.

Our philosophy is to cultivate long-term contracts by bringing our customers and their expertise together with strong, committed markets.  Our focus is on providing the right solution for our customers while understanding the needs of capacity providers.

We are recognized as a leader in data collection in the London Market. We were the first broker in London to introduce standardized bordereaux, developing innovative working practices which have improved efficiency and reduced our customers’ costs.  Our investment in customizable technology has delivered real-time processing and access to data analytics to our customers.
