As the corporate world becomes increasingly unpredictable and litigious, a comprehensive risk management strategy is essential. To be truly effective, property insurance requirements are most comprehensively met by having the ability to quickly access London based expertise.

Alesco has the specialist knowledge, expertise and access to some of the world’s leading insurance markets, both here in London and in global centres of insurance.

With over 30 specialists, offering experience insuring more than 25 different industries and 300 years’ combined personal experience in property damage and business interruption insurance, our team is one of the largest in London.

We operate right at the heart of the Lloyd’s and London company insurance market, with fast, easy access to other key international insurance markets in over 70 countries – including Europe, Bermuda, and Singapore. We offer design, placement and servicing for global portfolios or single assets across a broad range of industries, specialising in sectors from food processing, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, through to mining, heavy industry and engineering, rail, retail, media and telecommunications public sector, and real estate & hospitality.

What makes us different?

Extensive experience and direct access to a global network of insurers and underwriters

Alesco’s Property Team consists of individuals with an array of different industry specialisms. The majority of our team have worked together now for over 15 years, with extensive networks that reaches across the London and international insurance market.

Speed of response and innovative solutions to meet evolving demands

We pride ourselves on being responsive to changing environments. Direct access to the London market allows us to address our client’s requirements – especially when their requirements have higher risk parameters or values that extend beyond what smaller wholesalers are able to facilitate. This allows us to develop new, specialist cover as risks change, increase, or as capacity fluctuates and insurer appetites evolve.

Designated regional sub-team support
