What our clients say
I am a difficult customer with rapidly changing demands … a house in London, a house in the South of France, several cars, art and jewellery. The team is sensitive to my changing needs and works with me quickly and effectively.
Mr Phillips, London.
Having a car accident just before embarking on to the Eurostar in a car loaded with dogs, a husband, luggage and my mother-in-law was not the best start to my holiday! I called the James Hallam team and was immediately accommodated in a nearby hotel overnight and a replacement Range Rover arrived just 24 hours later … it made me appreciate why not all insurers are the same. Thank you for your amazing service.
Claire Mulligan, Guildford.
I have known Marcus Rennick professionally for many years. During that time I have formed a high opinion of his abilities. He has an extensive knowledge of the insurance industry and valuable contacts within insurance companies who clearly respect and trust his judgment. He takes great trouble with his clients and is dedicated and conscientious in all his dealings. Insurance is a field in which money can easily be wasted on excess premiums or on taking out policies for eventualities the likelihood of whose occurrence is vanishingly small. I have always found Marcus to be absolutely … dedicated to obtaining the lowest premium and rigorous and objective in advising on the efficacy of any insurance option. I wish Marcus and his team the very best at James Hallam and look forward to continuing to work with them.
Sir John Nutting Bt QC
Albany is a Grade 1 Listed Building occupying a prime location in Central London and comprising 70 private apartments. It is 213 years old, without change of use during that time, and is widely regarded as being highly prestigious. Insurance, therefore, is an important consideration in the running of Albany. Marcus Rennick, who specialises in this type of property, has looked after the Trustees’ buildings insurance interests, and the contents insurance interests of a number of residents, for several years. He has built up a very sound relationship with the Trustees in general and with me on their behalf in particular and quickly gained confidence, trust and respect. He is the consummate professional: always available when needed, yet never intrusive, he gives sound and utterly reliable advice. He knows the insurance market backwards and, with his finger constantly on the pulse, is always looking to maximise client benefit by making positive recommendations. The annual review is conducted personally and in as much detail as his client would like. I cannot recommend him and his team too highly.
Cdr Ian Wellesley-Harding RN,
Secretary to the Trustees and Steward of Albany
Marcus and his team have managed the insurances for our estate, fine art and motor policies for some considerable time. Always friendly, the team works alongside our estates manager and the insurances lead within the family office, providing honest and apposite advice. I value their consistency and attention to detail and the competitively priced insurances they broker for us. In the event of a claim we know that we can trust Marcus to settle it efficiently which is essential in the running of an estate such as ours.
Sir William Worsley, Hovingham Hall
