She works with high and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, single and multi-family Offices and their advisors, providing insurance solutions to help them protect and preserve their wealth and lifestyles - simply and backed by excellent and intuitive service. She provides a holistic service that assesses clients’ exposures from owning and using high-value and complex physical fixed and mobile assets and the liabilities these incur. She works with clients designing, implementing, placing and managing insurance covers. With solid cross-class insurance knowledge, she advises on risk types from property, estates, motor, art, jewellery, yacht and lifestyle exposures, etc. Her focus is on delivering exceptional client value with a long-term perspective. Her leadership, market relationships and thinking beyond the obvious provide clients with positive results, and her enthusiasm and passion for her specialism make dealing with the perceived mundane task of managing insurance programmes something that needn’t be dreaded! Rachel has over 25 years’ experience in the insurance industry, the last 20 focused on Private Clients. She has gained experience working for one of the ABC broking firms, a large multinational insurance broker, and prior to that, working for a leading insurer as an Underwriter of high-value property.
