La Playa insurance, the Cambridge based boutique specialist insurance adviser, has joined forces with four other firms nationally as a founding member of Partners&, creating a new advisory business in the insurance marketplace.
La Playa Insurance joins forces with Partners&
With a reputation for providing insurance with intelligence at the cutting edge of science and technology, the move enables La Playa to scale up its support for the sector, creating a premier new insurance and risk management advisory, with international capability and chartered status.
La Playa has been providing specialist insurance and risk management advice for innovative and creative enterprises in the science and technology, arts and entertainment and media and digital sectors for over 20 years. Their current clients include: Endomag, Plextek, Omobono and Cambridge Arts Theatre.
As part of the Partners& group, La Playa will continue to provide high quality, seamless international insurance, risk management and employee benefits advice, supported by a culture of partnership between their people, their clients and their ecosystem of professional advisers in the field.
Mark Boon, Executive Director, said: “We’re delighted to be part of the Partners& family. The move gives us more resource and capability to serve clients in the expert advisory way that clients know and love. In innovative areas like science, technology and media, getting the right insurance advice really does make a difference to outcomes – and you need someone who will stand shoulder to shoulder with you when the chips are down. The experience and ethos in the new enterprise is directly aligned with La Playa’s, and this marks a new phase in our journey. Our aim is simple: to create the best insurance advisory business in the UK.”
As the name suggests, Partners& focuses on the core value of “partnership” in an advisory firm, with the “&” representing collaboration and pooled experience. Later this year, La Playa will rebrand and begin to operate as the new company - a well-resourced, well thought-through business model that keeps clients and people at the centre.
La Playa employs 30 people and is based in Milton Hall (North Cambridge) with offices in London and New York.
