There’s no need to take our word for it, be thorough, here are some testimonials and case studies
“the most professional and knowledgeable broker”
“Cowens have been our insurance brokers since October 2013 following a detailed market review. Not only were Cowens the most professional and knowledgeable broker within our review, they offered the most suitable insurance policies for our business at a competitive price. I was immediately impressed with their proactive approach in attempting to understand our business in order to understand our risks. Since October 2013, Cowens have been a valued business partner, offering in addition to insurance services, expert advice on various areas of risk management including performance bonds, bid bonds, contractual clauses and health & safety. From my experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending Cowens to other similar businesses.”
Ross Amory – Finance Director – DB Broadcast Ltd
“Cowens Advice Saved Our Business”
“Cowens attention to detail is really impressive. As a business specialising in events organisation, there are a myriad of things that can go wrong… Poor weather especially. Last year Cowens suggested we reconsider our existing cover due to exposure. Thankfully we took their advice. During the year we had two significant claims, which were settled promptly and with minimal fuss. On reflection, I realised that our old programme would have been insufficient and had we still been exposed, our business would just not have survived”.
Mark Hulme - Managing Director – Living Heritage Event Hire Services Ltd
“The Speed of Claims Handling is Really Impressive”
“Since appointing Cowens we have built very strong relationships with the team handling our account. Due to the nature of our business we have a certain amount of Motor claims and Transit claims each year and a speedy resolution of these is essential. Cowens dedicated claims handler is always on hand to ensure any claims made happen quickly and smoothly”.
“Cowens have worked pro-actively with us. They are not just about taking a premium and dealing with claims as and when they occur. They genuinely care about our business and have made recommendations to improve our cover and reduce costs”.
Phil Pugsley - Director – S & J European Haulage Ltd
“You really can’t afford to not talk to these guys”
“We had 3 years with our previous Insurance Broker and they categorically advised that we have the best deal on the table. We checked our prices with Cowens Survival Capability and not only did they reduce our premium by 25% but they also provided us with BETTER COVER!”.

“Cowens have become part of our team”
“We have worked with Cowens for a number of years now and feel that they have become a part of our team. They have always been responsive to our needs and been able to come up with Insurance solutions for our various requirements over the years.
It is important for us to have the right level and types of cover not only to protect the business but also satisfy the requirements of the companies we work for and we are confident that Cowens are looking after us correctly and fulfilling these requirements”.

“The technology at our facility is unique and requires a detailed level of understanding.. Cowens have been able to steer us through the complexities of this.”
“Our business primarily operates from the Netherlands and when we were looking to establish a facility in Derby for renewable energy processing, we needed to find an Insurance Broker to work with in the UK. We were recommended to speak to Cowens by one of our contacts in the UK. Having seen a number of brokers we decided to include Cowens in the tender process and then consequently decided that we would work with them going forward.
Our wood processing renewable energy plant is now entering the operational phase and we are confident that we have made the right decision in choosing Cowens as our broker. The technology at our facility is unique and requires a detailed level of understanding, so a broker can talk to insurers regarding the cover requirements. Cowens have demonstrated the ability to do this. Although we are used to arranging Insurance in the Netherlands, the UK Insurance market does differ and Cowens have been able to steer us through the complexity of this”.
