Who we are – Big Enough to Deliver/Small Enough to Care

Northern Alliance are an independently owned commercial insurance brokerage, we provide the services of a traditional independent broker in the form of a ‘hands on’ personal service. We are however also in the enviable position of being members of the Willis Commercial Network and therefore have the backing of the world’s 4th largest insurance broker. Being members of a global organisation (Network premium income £500 million) allows us considerable leverage within the insurance market which subsequently allows us to provide our clients with the most competitive terms in the market, the ability to place any risk and provide bespoke solutions only available to Willis members.

Our Approach

Our approach to reviewing your commercial insurance arrangements is different from our broker rivals. The market perception being that the more insurers approached the best deal will follow. We however believe a more focused approach to broking generates better results and we therefore only work with a select number of insurers on each risk. Our approach allows us to

  • enhance the prospect of real & meaningful premium savings without compromising the cover, service or the quality of the insurers
  • it ensures the approach is focused purely on results rather than simply on how many different insurers are approached on your behalf
  • it avoids multiple presentations being sent to the same insurers by several different brokers which does little to create any serious interest in your company

Our Service

Should you have the misfortune of having to claim under your policy we pride ourselves on offering a dedicated 24/7 claims service. Our claims manager has over 30 years experience in insurance claims having managed claims departments within large insurers himself.

In addition to our usual claims service we also offer all Northern Alliance clients our bespoke Claims Consultancy/Loss Recovery service.

  • Your loss adjuster will give you advice relating to measures necessary or advisable to secure and make premises safe, to mitigate the loss, to salvage partially or undamaged goods and to minimise the disruption to you and your business.
