Bidding for tender 

Darwin Clayton initially approached Axis Group in 2016 in a bid to be part of the tender process for their upcoming contract. Although at that time Axis Group, still had a year left in their existing contract they developed a good relationship with Darwin Clayton and over this time got to know the team. At the end of 2016, Darwin Clayton entered into the tender process alongside two other brokers and signed a contract with Axis Group at the start of 2017.

Competitive, specialist cover

Axis Group were particularly drawn to Darwin Clayton’s offering due to their expertise of the industry and the calibre of the team. As price was obviously a consideration, the group were keen to assess the competitiveness of each broker’s offering. As Darwin Clayton had access to specialist security and cleaning insurance, they were able to offer value-for-money policies which set them apart from the competition.

Darwin Clayton now manages all of the group’s insurance cover, including Public Liability, Employers’ Liability, Vehicle, Directors & Officers and Property.

“We really built a relationship with Darwin Clayton, so we knew that we were not just going to be another number. They have a true specialism in their area and genuinely wanted to be part of our business because of the value they could provide. We don’t just see them on renewal, they’re present throughout the year. We hold regular meetings to discuss and assess cover and their claims support is excellent. 

At Axis Group, we believe in developing long-term relationships with the people we work with and we knew we’d found that in Darwin Clayton.”
