BACKGROUND & HISTORY

The W Denis Group is a completely independent insurance broker.
Established in 1963, W Denis Group has grown to become one of the largest independent brokers based in the UK.

The traditional business of W Denis Group has been the provision of specialist and competitive insurance to UK businesses.  Clients of W Denis Group span many industrial sectors from aviation to cargo handling, manufacturing to power plants, property to finance.  All major classes of insurance are covered.

Today W Denis Group provides technical insurance and risk management services to clients not just in the UK but also throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Far East and Australasia.  This multi-national operation includes:

  • Designing and placing global insurance programmes for major companies.  Where required local policies are organised, issued in indigenous language and currency.

  • Wholesale services to overseas brokers, including licensed surplus lines brokers in the USA.

  • Procurement of underwriting capital for Managing General Agents, seeking binding authority agreements and underwriting authority from Lloyd’s or other globally operating insurers.

As a fully accredited broker at Lloyd’s of London, W Denis Insurance Brokers Plc have direct access inside the Lloyd’s market.  Brokers from W Denis trade daily with Lloyd’s underwriters in all major classes of insurance.  This direct approach enables W Denis Group to offer efficient entry to Lloyd’s and the provision of innovative, comprehensive and competitive solutions.

In 2000, W Denis Credit Risks Ltd was formed which provides specialist Trade Credit Insurance to companies to protect against their debtors going into liquidation.  Organic growth and an acquisition in 2011 have grown W Denis Credit Risks Ltd into one of the Top 10 trade credit insurance providers in the UK.

Small business is also handled by W Denis Insurance Direct Ltd which was formed in 2009 to counter the reduction in service many businesses were left with due to the growth in on-line SME insurance.  This company provides small businesses with a personal and traditional service.
