Our London team is moving…
Griffiths & Armour are delighted to announce the relocation of our London teams to a new office in the City to cater for the company’s growth and continued focus on client service excellence.
On Monday 22nd July 2019, Global insurance broker Griffiths & Armour will relocate their Lloyd’s broking team, Griffiths & Armour Global Risks Limited and associated joint venture company, GAWS of London Limited, to:
One America Square
One America Square is an iconic 14 storey tower building which is located in the City of London at the heart of EC3. Within a short walk of Lloyd’s of London, this area of the City attracts many of the world’s leading insurance, professional and finance practices. The newly refurbished accommodation offers state of the art facilities in the heart of the City and supports the growth plans of the firm.
The new office offers an easily accessible location, and provides a flexible working environment in London for employees from Griffiths & Armour’s impressive Head Office, located at the Liverpool Waters dockside development, along with those travelling from other offices including Manchester and Dublin. And for clients, and partner organisations, there are excellent amenities, including leisure and hotel facilities for visitors requiring overnight accommodation, within easy reach. Video conferencing meeting rooms, complimentary Wifi, hot desk areas, and comfortable seating booths for informal discussions are some of the features available to all guests in the new office.
Griffiths & Armour Global Risks Ltd (GAGR) is the firm’s registered Lloyd’s Broker, and GAWS of London Limited (GAWS) is as an international London Wholesale Brokerage formed as a joint venture with fellow Assurex Global partner, Woodruff Sawyer, who are headquartered in San Francisco. Both of these London teams are currently based in 145 Leadenhall Street, and are scheduled to formally relocate over the coming weekend.
Griffiths & Armour’s joint Chief Executive, Carl Evans, and leader of GAGR commented:
“We’re really excited about the move for our Lloyds Broking team; our people have great experience, technical capability and enthusiasm. This relocation is a fantastic opportunity to provide a work environment that not only offers a great home for our team but also reflects the values and culture of the firm, allowing us to extend our excellence in client services. Our doors have always been open to our clients and partner organisations and we look forward to welcoming all to our brand new London base, be it for a scheduled meeting or simply to take advantage of our new facilities when visiting the City.”
Matt Donnelly, joint Chief Executive at Griffiths & Armour, former Chairman of Assurex Global and GAWS Board Member, added:
“With a focus on US and overseas risks, GAWS has rapidly become an established London wholesale broker with a growing reputation for addressing the over consolidation within the London market. GAWS represents a bold investment in relation to our Assurex family; it has been a pleasure to work so closely with our friends at Woodruff Sawyer to see this vision become a reality, offering solutions for their clients in the Property, Marine Cargo, FinPro and Crisis Management segments. The future for Griffiths & Armour, our clients and our partner organisations is truly an exciting one!”
