Partners& and Smith Brothers Insurance have announced a transatlantic partnership to fill a gap in the international private client market.

Estate and asset protection can often be complex, particularly when working across borders and between various insurers. Disparate policies may not work together and the lack of collaboration between brokers in different countries can cause confusion and leave clients exposed.

Partners& and Smith Brothers are committed to enhancing the experience clients have with insurance, ensuring their global assets are protected, and should the worst happen, respond quickly and effectively. In times of uncertainty, clients are looking for exceptional service levels and advice they can trust. To address this, they have developed an international solution for wealthy individuals with homes and assets in multiple countries.

Darren Humphray, Managing Partner of Private Clients at Partners&, commented, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Smith Brothers. We’ve both built our business on providing friendly, professional service and expert advice focused on the needs of our clients.

“Insurance is a key part of what can be complex estate planning and it’s critical to take the time to understand clients and provide the right advice. Our experience has shown us, there are often gaps, which can unknowingly lead to significant potential exposures for clients. By closing the gaps in cover resulting from advice not dovetailing appropriately, we eliminate the potential for uninsured loss. Our aim is to ensure we listen to clients and collaborate with their advisers and determine exactly what they need (or don’t!). Working together with Mike and the team at Smith Brothers, we can ensure our clients are protected, come what may.”

Mike Kelly, Practice Leader at Smith Brothers Private Client Group, states, “We couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Darren and his team at Partners&. Their unwavering dedication to client experience and extensive expertise in the private client space align perfectly with our goals. Our clients frequently request the Smith Brothers experience for their UK exposures, and we are grateful to collaborate with Darren and his team to deliver a world-class service.”
