Strong partnership support
James Hallam Partnerships
Our partnership programme commenced in 2015 and has since expanded to include specialist entrepreneurial businesses operating under an authorised representative (‘AR’) basis Ever increasing barriers to enter into the broking profession is increasing the number of opportunities presented to us and our bespoke approach enables a flexible solution to be found.
Roy Standish, Partnerships Director, started his career with the Zurich Group in 1986 as a Property Underwriter. In 2005, he became City Manager and established a UK General Insurance Business to concentrate on mid corporate business in the City. In 2011, he moved to Head of Real Estate Insurance, delivering a refreshed sub segmented customer value proposition, before his appointment three years later as Market Management Director leading all 9 Zurich Commercial Broker branches in the UK. Roy was later appointed as Sales and Distribution Director, responsible for the General Insurance Retail distribution and sales strategy before leaving Zurich at the end of June 2018.
He joined James Hallam in 2019 as our Partnerships Director, with primary responsibility for driving forward our Partnership Programme for Appointed Representatives.
“After a long and happy career at Zurich, I was determined to plot a new course in insurance which both used my skills and offered the prospect of enjoyment in supporting a wide variety of business opportunities within the insurance sector. I have known Seventeen Group for many years and so it was a very natural fit for me. I know that a number of high calibre insurance individuals and firms are seeking greater support to achieve their objectives
and we will be well placed to assist them.”
Roy is an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute, a Chartered Insurance Broker, a member of the Worshipful Company of Insurers and a Freeman of the City of London.

What our partners say
The partnership we have with James Hallam is excellent. The senior team has a clear understanding of our business, is wholly respectful of our independence and supports our business ambition. Talisman operates across complex multi-territory markets and as a Lloyd’s Broker James Hallam is able to offer us both Lloyd’s and composite market capabilities. Access to excellent in-house resources has also enabled me to build an entirely service-focused team, which frees us to concentrate our time and expertise on clients and their business needs.
