What our clients say

After speaking to a number of potential providers, we chose Protean to arrange our PI cover because we were impressed by their understanding of the unique characteristics of the specific niche market that we operate in and their ability to source bespoke cover at a competitive cost. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Protean Risk was incredibly helpful and understood our business immediately. Most importantly they got us a deal we were very happy with in a really short space of time. In summary Great people to work with!

We found the team at Protean to be extremely helpful and efficient, delivering a higher level of service than we had previously experienced. Working together, we were able to achieve a more competitive premium for our Professional Indemnity Insurance renewal. We would happily recommend them.

We were recommended to work with Protean by one of our Venture Capital investors. As a FinTech business we have very specific requirements, meaning that we require support from advisers with the expertise in our sector. We found Protean Risk to be knowledgeable, organised and supportive throughout the process. We would be happy to recommend their services to others

We refer all of our PII enquiries to Protean because they have been able to find insurers for our clients when other brokers could not

The team at Protean Risk were able to give expert advice and demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the IFA insurance market which allowed us to save money and retain our current insurer. It is very appealing to work with a broker that matches our own profile and has similar values in relation to client service. We would highly recommend them

We needed to put in place our first policies after raising financing. We found Protean to be efficient, appropriate and very helpful.  We will use them next time!

Protean Risk has arranged the professional insurances for Ledbury Partners since we started the business. Throughout this time they have demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the AIFM sector and our insurance requirements as a hedge fund manager. They continue to perform at a high level and we would definitely recommend them. 

Protean were both knowledgeable and helpful in helping us obtain our PI and D&O Insurance. Nathan had an implicit understand of the market and what we required from our insurance, and was successful in quickly obtaining cover that was both more comprehensive and significantly more cost effective than we had had previously. Very happy with the whole process.
