Meet the team
I am Marcus Rennick and I lead both the Estates and Private Clients teams, which I have built with some of the foremost experts in the market. I’m an FCII qualified insurance professional and my insurance career has spanned over 40 years, mainly as a broker but I started my career as an Underwriter. In the last 16 years I have focused on high and ultra-high net worth private client business, as well as landed estates and rural enterprises.
My insurance interests include historic houses and art collections. I am also a member of a high and ultra-high net worth advisory board, and specialist group, which examine the needs of very wealthy private clients with the intention of developing smarter strategies to protect their assets. I am also a contributor of insurance press reviews.
Outside of work my personal hobbies include: architecture, mountain biking, motorsport, jazz and fine wines.
I am Paul Jacobs and I responsible for and maintaining our book of Estates business within Estates and Private Clients. Coming from Marsh, where I was the Head of Technical Claims I have built a strong relationship with some of the finest loss adjusters within the Estates arena. This is of the utmost importance when providing claims advocacy which we in Estates and Private Clients believe sets us apart from our competitors. I began my career some 25 years ago working for a local broker in Finchley dealing with commercial claims for engineers and printers before honing my skills within an Estates and Private Clients environment for the best part of 17 years. My attention is now focused to driving our business forward by winning new clients in my role as an Account Director where I will also be providing support to our high and ultra-high net worth private client business, as well as landed estates and rural enterprises. Outside of work my personal hobbies include: Football, dog walking, my family, holidaying, good music of all genres and a good single malt.
I am Nina Nash and I have recently been recruited to head the Private Clients team within the James Hallam Estates & Private Clients Division. I am Cert CII qualified and previously worked for another Independent broker for 23 years managing their Private Clients team in Berkhamsted. My particular focus and responsibility is ensuring that existing and new clients receive impeccable service and support.
Whilst I have dealt with most types of Home Insurance, my particular areas of expertise include Fine Art, Jewellery, Contract Works for homes undergoing renovations as well as properties which have previously suffered from Subsidence. I enjoy nothing more than for my team and I to exceed client service expectations. In this regard, I am lucky enough to work with some very experienced and talented colleagues. We are all passionate about what we do.
Outside work I am a mother to Isabelle 13 and Olivia 12. Their endless activities and social lives take up much of my time outside work; however I am a keen dancer and attend Ballet and Contemporary Street Dance classes each week. In addition, I love food and cookery, music and travelling.
