We wanted to work with a brokerage that fits well with our culture and customer focus and we firmly believe that this will not only strengthen our footprint in Scotland but also enhance our service to customers.


“The management team at Insureness has significant experience with impressive reputations and established relationships across the broking industry. Each brings a wealth of individual expertise which will complement the existing team at Boyd. Working closely with Ken Davie, Ken Whittle and Colin Grant will ensure there is continuity for our customers. We can’t wait to get started.”
