Bruce Stevenson Opens New Office

Founding UNA Member, Bruce Stevenson has opened an office on Galashiels as part of its long term growth strategy to reach £25m of annual premium.

Edward Bruce, chief executive of Bruce Stevenson Insurance Brokers, said:
"..Our overall business has grown steadily, we started the year with total premiums of £20m, they're currently sitting at £23m and we anticipate this growing to over £25m by the year end.  
This growth is from organic growth rather than growth by acquisition and reinforces our aim to be the broker of choice.."

Economy
Bruce pointed out that the economy in the Borders region of Scotland, where Galashiels is located, is growing.

He added: "The economy in the Borders is already growing and it will develop even further once the Borders Railway opens in September.

"We identified a gap in the Borders market for an insurance broker to provide a local service based on local knowledge."

He added: "The new members of staff in our Galashiels base already have in-depth knowledge of the region, which will help them to provide first-class customer service.

"Indeed, we already have a number of staff based in Edinburgh and Glasgow who previously worked in the broking industry in the Borders."

The chartered broker now has 80 staff and has bases in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Aberdeen.

Specialist
Andrew Adam, commercial director added: "Our specialist team will serve both corporate and private clients from our new office in Galashiels and it will be good to renew past relationships in the Borders as well as establishing a new client base.

"We are confident that that our key areas of expertise - which include farms and estates, heritage property and renewable energy - will be of great assistance to businesses and private clients in the Borders."
