Team Credentials


Founded in 1828, Willis is one of the longest

established and largest insurance brokers in

the world.

Building upon the solid foundations laid by

an experienced team with an increasing

number of blue chip clients, in 2005 Willis

launched its Property Investors Division


WPID is entirely focused on providing

insurance and risk management advice and

services to organisations of all shapes and

sizes with an involvement in property


You will benefit from this focus because we

already understand your business. You will

rarely have to educate us about the

challenges facing your business.

The strength of the team lies in the sheer

scale of the resources and level of expertise

we can bring to bear on behalf of our

clients. With over 200 years of combined

property market experience in the

management team alone.

As a result, our clients are certain that they

will always have access to individuals with a

thorough knowledge and understanding of

their business.

Our clients are at the heart of everything we

do. Our aspiration is to be regarded by you

as the ‘in house’ insurance resource, and

valued member of your professional team.

You are then free to concentrate on the

issues that drive your business, safe in the

knowledge that, as far as insurance is

concerned, someone is doing the thinking

for you.

The pride we take in maintaining the

highest service standards is reflected in our

policy of all our staff being located in the

same offices. We believe that the

administrative functions that are

fundamental to your requirements are too

important to be separated from the people

who are ultimately responsible for delivering

the service to you.
