Jelf opens major centre in Glasgow

07 Jan 2019

Jelf, the insurance, risk management and employee benefits specialist, has launched its new Glasgow branch and its biggest trading centre in Scotland at the prestigious G1 building on George Square.

The broker has secured almost 32,000 sq ft of space, accommodating around 80 staff. The move follows the acquisition of Clark Thomson, formerly Scotland's largest independent broker. Jelf now plans to build the leading community-based risk advisory business for SMEs in Scotland, with 14 offices across the country.

Pictured here with regional director Catherine Kelly is Ben Bailey, managing director of Jelf in Scotland who said: "We've been looking forward to introducing our clients and insurer partners to our new Glasgow premises and the increased range of services we are able to offer.

"Our G1 branch is home to one of the most comprehensive broker teams in the UK including an in-house claims department, specialist risk management advisors and our own employee benefits division.

"With our enhanced scale and resources, deep knowledge of local communities and industry experience we are absolutely committed to becoming the broker of choice across Scotland."

Across the UK Jelf has almost 3,000 employees serving 250,000 clients from more than 75 branches.
