Our aim is to understand our client’s business strategies and work with them to support and achieve their goals.
By managing clients’ portfolios of business – and developing their brand within London and key markets outside the UK – we are able to promote their business capabilities in all areas.
We are organised to ensure a maximum focus and level of expertise is available to meet our clients’ requirements.
In 2015, we have further aligned our operations to reflect a commitment to excellence of service by combining the claims, technical and broking teams into two distinct divisions. This enables us to achieve greater focus and communication to maximise our offering to clients.
Our history demonstrates the commitment we have to working and supporting clients to establish approved Lloyd’s coverholder status. In the current environment of compliance and regulation, this process has become more complex and time consuming. Endeavour’s experience and working knowledge is integral to gaining support from our supporting underwriters as part of the process requirements.
