The quality of our people is our most important asset. Some of our people have been with us for over thirty years and many have been with us for ten years or more. This ability to attract and retain experienced and talented people enables us to provide a consistently high quality of service.

Our teams work together, across departments, to get the job done. Our culture encourages our staff to go beyond what is expected. We do not have layers of committees to review business decisions.  Rather, our senior management and directors play an active role in daily operations which enables an agile and quick decision making process.

As a business we go beyond what is expected. Our investment in back-office systems and market leading technology is a reflection of this value. We are passionate about our business, about the longevity of our partnerships, and about the market leading position we hold. Every day we strive to be the best partner possible for both customers and markets.

We aim to participate fully in our industry and put as much back into it as we can. We are active participants in both AAMGA and NAPSLO, and sit on various London Market groups.
