INTEGRITY, EXPERTISE & SERVICE
Weatherbys Hamilton shares exactly the same ethos as Weatherbys, the name synonymous with the administration of horse racing since 1770, with the same thread of reliability and integrity that runs through the fabric of the most successful family firms. Our insurance services complement Weatherbys’ activities seamlessly, but importantly there is absolutely no requirement to own a horse in order to be a client! A rapidly growing number have no connection with British racing but value the expertise and personal service that we bring to the insurance of their personal assets and it is for this that we are becoming increasingly known.
Founded in 2012, Weatherbys Hamilton’s original partners were Weatherbys Bank and Charles Hamilton, an insurance broker with over 30 years successful experience in the private client sector. Weatherbys Insurance, which had hitherto just specialised in equine insurance, was absorbed in to the new firm and six additional partners have been recruited to enable it to insure other assets such as houses, cars, farms and estates.
Weatherbys Hamilton provides an energetic and innovative insurance service to clients all over the United Kingdom from its five offices across the country. At a time of growing anonymity in the insurance sector, where brokers are consolidating and becoming increasingly corporate, the client is too often forgotten in the rush for profit. That is exactly the opposite at Weatherbys Hamilton where the interests of our clients are, and will remain, at the heart of everything we do.
Private client insurance covers all those assets that are personal to you. At the simplest level this is normally a house and a car and we provide the same high standard of attention and personal service whatever their value or the number of family members involved. Our clients invariably find it very reassuring to be able to entrust responsibility for their families’ insurances to someone with whom they can establish a relationship, who takes an interest and is always accessible. This is at the core of what we offer, whether it is a house in the Cotswolds, a flat in Chelsea or merely the needs of a 17 year old provisional licence holder! Private client insurance is a term bandied about by many insurers and brokers but few actually deliver what the phrase implies and that is where we make quite a difference.
Our Equine Insurance covers all things equine, the horses themselves as well as the training stables and stud farms where they are kept. Thoroughbreds are the horses that are registered in the General Stud Book for racing and breeding, whilst sport horses are those used in competition such as eventing, show-jumping and polo. Weatherbys Hamilton is absolutely pre-eminent in the insurance of thoroughbreds and insures many of the bloodstock industry’s leading owners and their horses. Its partnership with Weatherbys gives it unrivalled access to pedigrees and race records which adds considerable value to the equine insurance service that it is able to provide to its clients.
'Proud to Support The Excellence of Youth and Our Special Friends'
Weatherbys Hamilton is proud to sponsor EOY 2016 and help facilitate such a great platform for talented and generous young artists.
I am delighted that this year's event will be raising funds for the charity, 'Our Special Friends.' The work they do is very worthwhile and it is a cause that I am particularly keen to advocate. On behalf of all of the team here at Weatherbys Hamilton, I would like to wish them, and the Excellence of Youth Exhibition, every success.
