David Brackenbury Associates was established in 2006 and offers Insurers and Reinsurers an International Group of respected Experts located in many parts of the world. As part of a global network, the individual firms are fully independent, but share the values and expertise of some of the leading firms of Loss Adjusters and other Experts in the insurance world today.

I have been involved in international insurance losses and pre-risk analysis throughout my career, having worked as a Broker in the London Market for 26 years. I worked in a variety of claims areas including Reinsurance, Marine Cargo and Liabilities and Professional Indemnity. 

After some time at JH Minet & Co., I moved to Jardine Lloyd Thompson where I became Director in charge of Specie claims. My division then moved to HSBC Insurance Brokers in 2001 and I performed a similar role until 2006, when I set up my own consultancy firm, David Brackenbury Associates. I had seen the activities of the major firms of Loss Adjusters with their large London Marketing departments gaining and retaining business by offering a constant presence in the market. I also saw a number of smaller firms that offered as much expertise (or more!) than the big players, but were losing out because of their lack of presence and profile in the insurance community.

David Brackenbury Associates have built strong international links into the London insurance market and my experience as a Broker and more recently the time I have spent heading up my own firm has given me an excellent position to work with Underwriters, Brokers and other Experts as a genuinely independent figure.

My career has given me very wide contacts in most areas of business and I have dealt with a broad range of issues that cover many aspects of insurance claims and risk management issues situated in countries all over the world.
