Andy Halstead, Director of BIS says – ‘We are delighted to have been chosen by RSA to act as their key broker distributor for their Marine Trades Policy in North and Mid Wales. We believe that our being based in Llandudno is a big advantage to us – our research shows that many Marine Trades businesses in the area are serviced by brokers on the south coast on England. That remoteness can lead to lack of understanding of the risks that a business face and inadequate coverage. We aim to see all our of customers face to face at least once per year so that we can fully appreciate what they do, listen to their issues and give the most tailored advice we can. ’

Steve Gayward, Specialist Senior Underwriter at RSA: – ‘we distribute our specialist products through insurance brokers who are able to demonstrate professionalism and expertise in everything they do and Business Insurance Specialists are right in that mould.’

BIS Insurance Brokers North Wales are targeting all sizes of business from the small to the large – the policy fits all types and size of Marine Trades business. So whether you are a sole trader operation or multi location business- BIS will be happy to come and see you and offer a quotation for your insurance needs.
