Appointed Representatives
partnerships programme

Our Appointed Representative (AR) partnerships are just that – a partnership. You will retain total independence and full control of your business. But we will support you in your compliance and regulatory responsibilities, leaving you free to focus on your future growth, and on providing the best possible service to prospective and existing clients.

Strong partnership support

There are many benefits to joining the James Hallam family with an AR partnership. We will tailor our partnership so that it works for you.

A James Hallam partnership is a great opportunity for both new and established insurance brokers. You may be looking at ways to improve your current situation or you may be approaching retirement and looking at plans for your brokerage in the future. With our AR partnership programme you can leave your business in safe hands.

Quality partnerships skyrocket future growth

Brokers of all sizes face barriers that hinder their growth, and their income. Small firms and individual brokers are often so busy that they find themselves distracted, and unable to give their best to existing and prospective clients.
If you know you need some support, but you don’t want to lose your independence, then a James Hallam AR partnership is right for you.

AR partnerships help you stay competitive and deliver the best service to clients

When insurers reduce their agency base, smaller brokers can struggle to sustain a reasonable number of insurer agencies, which leads to a lot less choice for your clients. This can also hamper your earnings, as you may have no choice but to wholesale your business through another broker.

As a Lloyd’s broker, we have access to the full insurance market. Become a James Hallam AR partner, and you can give your clients full access to this market, enabling you to tailor their cover so that it meets their exact needs. In short, we will help you stay competitive through delivering the best possible service to your clients.

A James Hallam AR partnership will recognise and reward you for your talents and achievements

It is common for experienced account executives to feel disenchanted with their current employees. It can often feel like your management doesn’t recognise the value you bring to the business.
If you are looking for a fresh start, and an opportunity to build your own book of business, a James Hallam AR partnership will give you the business infrastructure and the support you need to succeed.

Our partnerships work for everyone
