The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has appointed Perkins Slade, one of the UK's leading independent insurance brokers, as their preferred broker.
Key initiatives for the new partnership include the development of new risk management services, competitively-priced online insurance products and bespoke policy wordings.
As part of the support available for RTPI members, an online insurance hub, www.ps-insurance-hub.com, has been created. Members can use the site to access policy wordings, summaries, risk management information and FAQs and to raise queries and request renewal reminders.
Speaking about the benefit of the new arrangement, Chris Sheridan, RTPI Planners in the Workplace Manager, commented,
"As a professional Institute, we have worked alongside Perkins Slade for numerous years, receiving their help and guidance in developing and delivering specific insurance solutions for our members whilst maintaining a cost-effective offering.
It is important to us that RTPI members have access to expert knowledge and advice. Perkins Slade is the ideal company to advise our members on managing risk and protecting their businesses. The confidence that we have in their professionalism is demonstrated by our decision to appoint them as the RTPI's preferred insurance broker."
Nick Tamblyn, Chief Executive, Perkins Slade, added,
"We are delighted to have been appointed as the preferred broker for the RTPI. We have a longstanding relationship with the Institute and their membership over which time we have developed a thorough understanding of their insurance needs. The new arrangement enables us to use this knowledge to enhance the products and service we provide to RTPI members."
