As summer draws to a close, I am sure that like me, many of you are busy ensuring that your goals for 2017 are on track whilst looking ahead to 2018 and beyond to ensure that your business remains relevant and preferred by your clients. Our world continues to be highly competitive and we can’t afford to stand still or rest on our successes from the past.
Speaking of the past, this year we have crossed the 10 year milestone in Canada and we are extremely grateful to our many broker partners for their support over these years.
Interestingly, one aspect of our plans for 2018 involves a move of our largest office in Brossard, and a commitment to the area for another 10 years! This office move will bring a more modern look and feel to our space, supporting our values of agility and innovation to make insurance simple for our broker partners.
So, whilst we’re celebrating the last 10 years, we’re also looking forward to the next 10!
Whilst it’s a little awkward having a big “for sale” sign outside of our office today (as our existing landlords are understandably looking for new tenants), and I’ve had a couple of our partners ask me what’s going on, I can tell you with certainty that we are committed to the area for the long-term.
We look forward to welcoming our local broker partners to our new office once it’s open early next year!
On a final note, I am delighted to introduce the next item in our newsletter – a note from David Fitzpatrick of Ascot – one of our major insurer partners (who themselves are also a Canadian owned Lloyds syndicate!). I wanted to share with you the stories of some of the great insurers and underwriters who sit behind the various products and capacities that we bring to Canada. David is a genuine expert and leader in his field and it’s a privilege to be part of the process of bringing this expertise to Canada through our underwriting agreements with Ascot.
All the best,
