BMS Harris & Dixon Marine is part of the BMS Group, an independent, employee-owned specialist insurance broking group built around teams of experts in the fields of reinsurance, direct and wholesale business.
These days, many might view marine insurance as something of a commodity product, but there is real value for the shipping industry if cover can be sourced that is flexible against the full range of potential risks, is competitively priced, and can be set up rapidly and relied on to pay promptly in the event of a claim.
Our roots in the marine market date back to 1797 and, with relationships going back many years, our team of around 20 experts has an in-depth understanding of our clients’ needs.
We focus on people, not products, listening to what you want and responding to your requirements.
Should claims arise, our experienced claims team can help deal with any issues and negotiate the prompt settlement of claims.
