Light In The Tunnel: The ‘Dolittle’ Dilemma

It is almost becoming impossible to avoid the sense that the lengthening days of spring are harbingers of brighter times ahead for Britain's business community. Change is very much in the air following several years of existential challenges for companies in a variety of sectors. Arguably the most significant is the prospect of a new government if the latest opinion polls are anything to go by. Even before the nation goes to the polls, though, we may be in line for a succession of interest rate cuts as inflation is finally brought under control. Yet entrepreneurs could be forgiven for

‘Exceptional’ Eleanor Retains Place Among Insurance Industry’s ‘Elite Women’

A director at Broadway Insurance Brokers has been named as one the industry's top women performers for the second successive year. Eleanor Moore, who is the firm's Director of Private Clients, is one of 56 "exceptional" women to be recognised as Elite Women by Insurance Business magazine. Organisers said that inclusion in the listing, which is made up of some of the country's best known insurance executives, was limited to those who had made a "meaningful contribution" to the domestic insurance market over the last 12 months. Ms Moore has played a significant role in Broadway's continued expansion during the

Healthcare Insurance Market: What To Expect In 2024

Due to rising medical inflation costs and the number of claims insurers are seeing, the healthcare market finds itself in a bit of a difficult place at the moment.  Because of this, it’s important to listen to the specific needs of the client, help them understand the market, explain products available, including the promotion of relevant additional benefits effectively and regularly. With this in mind what we are increasingly seeing is many large and complex clients searching for an advisor who is almost an extension of their HR Team - someone who can provide the support and guidance required to implement and develop their health and wellbeing strategy long term.

Off-Road: Theft, Insurance And The Evolving Car Market

Eagle-eyed readers of this 'blog' may recall an article written a couple of years ago by my colleague Eleanor Moore, Broadway's Director of Private Clients. It described how some insurers were so alarmed at the rate of car thefts in the UK that they had started to refuse to cover some of the country's most popular four-by-four and Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs). Sadly, the situation has not improved since. In fact, the latest crime data issued by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) late last month illustrated that the theft of vehicles continues to accelerate. During the 12 months to

Corporate Risk And Insurance: What Matters Most In 2024?

We are often asked, what are the main differences between generic insurance broking and tailored, specialist risk management advice? Generic insurance broking offers you an off-the-shelf insurance product, with limited options to tailor to your individual needs. Although easily accessible and quick to purchase, if not reviewed appropriately, they can quickly become out of date and not be aligned with the future risk profile of your business. Specialist risk management and insurance solutions go beyond simply insurance placement – we place greater emphasis on educating and empowering our clients to recalibrate priorities and build additional resilience.

“Pivotal” Year As Broadway Backs Up Growth With Awards Success

Broadway Insurance Brokers is celebrating the latest recognition in a remarkable continued run of success. The firm has been named the Best Specialist Insurance Brokerage in Greater Manchester in the SME Finance Awards - the fifth time in the last 12 months that Broadway has either been an award winner or featured in prestigious rankings.

Private And Personal: Health Cover The Broadway Way

As I write, we are heading into what is traditionally the busiest period of the year for the National Health Service. Only last month, the Government announced an additional £200 million to help the NHS cope with pressures on available resources from seasonal ailments, 'flu, the latest Covid-19 variant and the impact of ongoing industrial action. It is arguably not an over-reaction, given that the waiting list for treatment has risen in recent weeks to a new record high. According to the various media reports, 7.75 million people were awaiting operations or the start of a treatment programme at the

Hard Markets, Brokers And Bare Necessities

Only a few of years ago, a decision by the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee not to raise interest rates would barely have generated a murmur. The economy seemed stable and whilst interest rates may have confounded the future plans of savers to a degree, they conversely meant that things like mortgage repayments were affordable. That, of course, was before the first impacts of Brexit began to be felt and in advance of the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. So, this week's narrow vote in favour of leaving interest rates on hold for the first time since

Teamwork: Clubs And Players Working Together To Defeat Thieves

This week has seen the resumption of the UEFA Champions League, football's most lucrative club competition. When the tournament's group fixtures were announced last month, there was intense excitement for players, pundits, press and fans alike. Yet I suspect that there will have also been a degree of apprehension too. That's because knowledge of the fixtures is more than a cue to squad rotation for managers and a scramble for tickets by supporters. It also provides criminals at home and abroad with the playing schedule for the sport's elite and best-paid performers in the months to come. After all, a

Regulation And Respect: The Importance Of Compliance

The financial services industry makes up one of the key pillars of the global economy. Bearing in mind the enormous number of lives which it affects, it is only right that there are controls in place to ensure that it acts in a fit and proper manner. In the UK, overseeing the sector falls to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It was created by an act of parliament a decade ago as one of the mechanisms to regulate how the industry functions. Even though the regulatory framework which it is responsible for maintaining has changed markedly in the years since,

To Tot Or Not: Pointers For Would-Be Whiskey Collectors

Good taste is something which many of us aspire to. It is, however, entirely subjective. That said, there are certain things about which a good number of people agree the merits of. When it first featured in Scottish official records during the 15th-century, whisky (or 'whiskey', as it's spelt by equally renowned Irish distillers) was known as 'aqua vitae' - literally, the 'water of life'. Since then, it has been the favoured tipple of many famous figures through the ages, becoming a lucrative commercial commodity in the process. Figures released by the Scottish Whisky Association in March this year, for

I Know You Got Sole: Insurance, Training Shoes And Collectors

It doesn't seem too long ago that wearing training shoes was something done only when playing sport or dressing down at the weekend. Nowadays, the type of trainers you wear might indicate that you have serious wealth. That's because everyone from those with their eye on fashion trends, Premier League footballers, movie stars and even auction houses realise that certain sneakers are highly collectable. The decision by the American tennis star Stan Smith to lend his name to a tennis shoe made by Adidas in the early 1970s convinced sports brands that celebrity endorsements could boost sales.

In Sickness And In Health: Insurance, Tax Breaks And Economic Inactivity

Traditionally, winter is the time of the most acute stress on the National Health Service (NHS). The season of sniffles and bad weather is when we might expect the availability of support to be stretched to its fullest extent. However, there are indications that this month has perhaps shown the degree to which pressures on the NHS are now year-'round. Figures released within the last fortnight have shown that 7.5 million individuals in England were waiting for routine hospital treatments at the end of May: a new record. Unsurprisingly, Government is keen to find ways of tackling the problem, aware

Not So Firm Foundations: Climate Change And Insurance

As I write, I'm looking at some very grey skies and a very wet garden. Even so, we don't need to be professional meteorologists to see that this summer is already hotter than last year - and 2022 was, if any of us need reminding, the warmest year on record. Things in the UK may not, of course, be as extreme and as damaging to life or property as the heatwaves which continue to bring such discomfort to mainland Europe. Nevertheless, we should remember that change in the patterns of the passing seasons has an increasingly important bearing on the

Electric Shock: Issues Threatening To Short-Circuit The Green Vehicle Boom

It wasn't too long ago that the quiet whisper of electric car engines on the nation's roads was still drowned out by the steady chug of petrol and diesel equivalents. However, the latest vehicle sales' figures illustrate how traffic is now very much different compared to what it was only a few years ago. In fact, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), just over half of all new car registrations are electric or hybrid. A closer look at the data reveals more detail about Britons' current driving preferences. There are, for instance, three times more hybrid

Taken For A Ride: The Criminal Flip Side Of Britain’s Cycling Boom

One look around the roads of any town or city will illustrate how the popularity of cycling has transformed the UK's transport infrastructure in recent years. Many organisations - cultural, environmental, sporting and political - have realised that a rise in the number of individuals opting for two-wheels instead of four has enormous benefits. In fact, back in 2020, the Government led by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, himself a keen cyclist, announced a £2 billion initiative to encourage even more people to follow his lead.

Risk And Reassurance: The Unavoidable Importance Of Cyber Cover

Cyber crime may seem like a relatively recent phenomenon. In fact, using technology either to access information or hold an organisation's corrupted systems to ransom has been happening for decades. Last July, one of the world's leading IT companies, IBM, published the 17th edition of its authoritative report tracking data breaches across the globe. It revealed that the average cost of such attacks was £3.5 million - up almost 13 per cent in the space of only two years as the volume of major incidents has increased. Just months later, the Harvard Business Review assessed that the risks associated with

Home Discomforts: Summer, Safety, Security and Rising Crime

Many psychologists over the years have remarked upon the very real impact which the change in seasons has on our physical and mental well-being. However, even those who would not consider their lives to be blighted by the condition known as 'Seasonal-Affected Disorder' would acknowledge a tendency to behave differently in the depths of winter compared to the height of summer. Better weather tempts us from our homes to the great outdoors. Lighter evenings encourage socialising or a post-dinner stroll.

Not too many years ago, the idea of living a so-called 'double life' would have raised eyebrows.

According to one recent estimate, for instance, just over 31 million Britons had accounts on one of most vibrant platforms, Instagram, in December last year. Instagram is popular, in part, not just because of a high volume of cute cat videos but due to glossy lifestyle-related content. Images of exotic foreign holidays, haute couture, handbags
