An Advantage with us

Expert advice. Personal touches. Way beyond the ordinary.

Advantage Risk Solutions offers something refreshingly different: a holistic approach to managing your risk and insurance portfolio.

Whether you are a business or an individual client, our bespoke service eliminates the hassle of dealing with assorted companies, numerous members of staff and piles of paperwork. Instead, you have just one contact who will manage every aspect of your risk and insurance requirements – from reviewing your current risk profile through to finding the right policies to protect your assets and liabilities to handling your insurance claims process. What’s more, all of this is delivered with exceptional levels of customer service. We’re proud to say that there is no-one else out there quite like us.

 

How we work

We design insurance and risk management programmes for businesses, not for profit organisations and high net worth individuals based around three core principles: prevention protection and support.

Prevention

Proactive Risk Management and Loss Prevention

Taking a full review of your insurance and risk needs; identifying ways in which your risk profile can be improved and introducing appropriate controls or enhancements.

Protection

Meticulous Insurance Protection

Ensuring that your protection is right for you; identifying gaps and suggesting better alternatives where appropriate. Providing the right solution to ensure the ultimate protection of your assets and liabilities in the most cost-effective way.

Support

Uncompromising Assistance

We’re there for you every step of the way: from support throughout a claims process through to ongoing guidance and advice – as your insurance needs inevitably change over time. We are only ever a quick phone call away. Our ethos is based on long-term partnerships. We are not here to simply tick boxes and move on. If you’re not entirely comfortable with the language of insurance and risk management, you’ll find our approach refreshingly jargon-free and easy to digest, too. We speak your language and we are not fans of hard selling. Clients come to us for professional advice – and because we go that extra step in the level of service we provide.  

 

Why Advantage Risk Solutions?

We believe that the service we offer is one-of-a-kind. However, it’s not just that which sets us apart. We think and behave very differently to your average insurance broker, too.

We’re Creative

We embrace and encourage change and welcome new ideas. We won’t just opt for the easy route, we will genuinely work hard to find the best solutions for our clients, no matter what it takes.

We’re Transparent

We will always tell you how much we are going to earn from arranging your insurance portfolio. Similarly, we won’t charge you any additional fees unless these are agreed in advance and clearly identified.

We’re Experts

With many years’ combined experience, it’s fair to say we know our subject matter; we understand our clients and we speak their language.

We’re Attentive

We’re committed to building long-term client relationships based on mutual trust. This involves listening, understanding and anticipating our clients’ needs. We also take pride in a highly personalised service.

We’re Independent

Because we’re not tied to a particular set of products or services, we can offer high quality, independent advice.

We’re Connected

We’re in close touch with the market: our in-depth knowledge and breadth of contacts will ensure that we’re always aware of new trends, new ideas and innovative products.

A genuine Advantage

We love what we do and we believe that shines through with our personal approach and the quality of advice we offer.

Who We Are

Advantage Risk Solutions is the brainchild of two insurance professionals who identified a gap in the market for a holistic, tailored approach to insurance and risk management.

Advantage Risk Solutions is part of the Asset Advantage Group, a leading independent privately owned asset finance business; and while the two businesses offer complimentary services, they operate independently of one another.
