Why do you need a broker specialising in high growth companies?


We can help you grow

Ensuring you have the right insurance product is essential to enable you to grow. Based on our experience with high growth companies, you don’t want growth plans stilted because your insurance programme is inadequate.


We can protect you

As you grow, so does your exposure. When scaling up, your growth can easily outgrow your insurance. With our expertise in this area, we work to understand our clients to allow us to source a flexible product that grows with you and gives you protection and peace of mind.


We give the support you need, year round

We recognise that we need to give you the service you deserve. As a high growth, high impact company, your demands are high, and with our extensive and experienced team you can be certain you will have all the support you need.

What is the difference between a start-up company and a scale up company?

A start-up company is one that has just become established – they have a concept and a business plan, and are just beginning to make money and take their offering to market. A scale up company is one that has been through the start up or ‘seed’ process, and is now showing significant growth, or has received funding to take their company to the next level.

Why do I need a specialist broker as a scale up company?

As scale up companies have moved from the start up or ‘seed’ stage, they can typically have insurance cover in place that is inappropriate for the business now, let alone where the business will be at the end of the year. At SJL we have extensive experience dealing with high growth companies, so we know how companies can evolve during the year, and how your insurance needs to be flexible enough to evolve with you. We don’t believe insurance is a once a year job, but something that we work with you on all year round, providing the service and products your business really needs.

What type of covers does a scale up company need?

This really depends on the type of company and the sector in which you work, however our experts will advise on a range of covers, including:

  • Public & Products Liability
  • Employers Liability
  • Material Damage (for buildings, stock, contents etc)
  • Business Interruption (to cover your income following a claim)
  • Professional Indemnity
  • And many more!

Why SJL Insurance services?

With over 20 years of experience in commercial insurance, we use our expertise and market reach to source the best products for our clients and give them the advice they need.

With our awards-winning claims team there to support you when the worst happens, we can give the full cycle service you deserve.

How can an insurance program help you grow?

As a business it can be so frustrating not to be able to tender for ‘that’ client, or not be able to win ‘that’ business because your insurance programme won’t cover work in that country, or provide limits high enough to satisfy the tender requirements. We work with all of our clients to ensure that the insurance programme you have in place fits your needs on day 1 through to day 364 of a policy, and the only way we can do this is by fully understanding your needs.
