“Overall we have nothing but praise for Mactavish. The business and its people are second to none and we have very high levels of trust in the business. It is rare to find advisers which we can say this about.”
“Middlesex University recognised that insurance was an important area that was perhaps not understood as well as it could be. We therefore turned to Mactavish for their specialist expertise. Mactavish delivered huge value through their work and the way that they helped the university change its perceptions of insurance. By helping Middlesex University really understand what insurance is and focusing us on the importance of robust contracts Mactavish assisted with an important shift in our attitude to insurance.
Mactavish audited our insurance arrangements, provided clear usable guidance to help Middlesex University make improvements to our disclosure and document management, and assisted throughout our OJEU tender process. This assistance included setting the requirements of the tender, reviewing, analysing and scoring responses, attending the presentations from bidders, and providing legal drafting to improve the policy wordings on offer.
Mactavish also conducted risk analysis work to help the university understand its business interruption exposure in more detail. This work was really useful from an insurance perspective but also gave the university the opportunity to think through loss scenarios in more detail, which was really valuable.
The ongoing support of Mactavish, who clearly and concisely communicate the importance and pitfalls of insurance, has enabled us to maintain our focus on the subject. Overall we have nothing but praise for Mactavish. The business and its people are second to none and we have very high levels of trust in the business. It is rare to find advisers which we can say this about and it is even rarer to find a firm which combines this with being at the forefront of policy making in their field.”
