We have been providing Risk Transfer Solutions to Insurance Brokers and their clients since 2003 with our extensive knowledge of both local and overseas Insurance markets together with our highly regarded relationships built over many years by our Director Bryan Maher.

We have established exclusive arrangements with Lloyd’s Syndicates in London and multinational Re-Insurance Underwriters in support of our niche market segments and support in the placement of covers in Commercial Property ISR, Public Liability and Accident and Health risks just to name a few.

Through our detailed knowledge of International Markets and our marketing ability we ensure not only the premium is competitive but, just as importantly, the coverage is the widest available, backed by a strong viable insurance market. We believe our Commercial Business approach will provide clients with service of the highest standard, not only on renewal but throughout the year, as we continually work with you and your clients to plan for their future.

Our philosophy

To provide clients with:

Our Long Term Commitment

To offer clients:

In the last 12 months we have seen opportunities arise in the market to write and place profitable business including hard to place risks within defined classes. This has arisen through the reluctance of various underwriters to specifically target these areas outside their standard corporate products due to company philosophies and treaty restrictions.

In consideration of the very soft market locally at present we feel Forbes will have laid a very sound foundation with our supporting underwriters at Lloyds London and multinational re-insurers to stabilize our market when premium increases are enforced by our local providers in  the near future.

This will created an opportunity with moderate increases in premiums in all classes of business in our industry and underwrite our business in a more profitable and professional manner to generate higher profit margins for both underwriters and third party intermediaries e.g. Insurance Brokers and Underwriting Agencies.

We recognise a tremendous opportunity to supply the industry with broad based corporate products to meet the demands of the corporate and individual markets. There is a need to create an Insurance market, which is free thinking and has the ability to cater to a client's individual requirement. We have been extremely successful in the past doing just this and it has proven over time to be very Client/Underwriters compatible.

With the continuing rationalisation and mergers of the larger Corporate Insurers we believe our marketplace is in need of an alternative to the regimented approach that has been adopted in the past. We are now being given opportunities to provide our product to sectors of the market that have become disillusioned with their current Insurers and the services they can provide.

Forbes has established some very strong and loyal relationships within the corporate market who have expressed their interest and willingness to extend their support with any venture that we may undertake. In summary our objective is to been seen in the market place as offering a superior and flexible product with corresponding service and a quick turnaround of documents.
