Established in 1990 and based in Oxford, FOCUS is one of the region’s most respected firms of Independent Insurance Consultants.
In 1990, at the height of a recession and with interest rates at a record high, three friends (and business colleagues) decided to go it alone and set up their own company.
On 1st August 1990, FOCUS was born. Situated in Seacourt Tower from day one, that first day saw the three founding Partners (Gary Hunt, Nick Walker and Steve Ilott) and two staff sat on deck chairs as they had no office furniture.
In July 2017, the company became two separate entities, allowing the financial services and insurance divisions to take their specialist solutions into the future.
Focus Oxford Risk Management Ltd now has a team of talented staff providing bespoke solutions and first class service in all areas of Private Client and Commercial Business Insurance needs and arrangements.
FOCUS continues to be forward-thinking and we constantly review and update working practices to ensure that we remain not only legally compliant, but as importantly, in a position to provide our clients with the most up to date and appropriate insurance solutions.
As a truly independent broker, FOCUS has the ability to place business with the whole of market and will only provide cover that our clients truly need. We will only deal with insurers which carry a strong financial rating and who are trusted to deliver on claims quickly and efficiently.
FOCUS has become a trusted and valued insurance broker to a great many clients and fellow professional advisers. We have been operating as professional broker to our clients for more than 25 years, and many of our clients have been with us since we started.
We believe our success has been built as we have often taken a different approach to providing the solutions for our clients’ needs. We quickly recognised that our clients were looking for a very much more personal approach, rather than having to search the internet or talking to a provider over the phone and never talking to the same personal twice. This is why our clients can speak to us whenever they need us.
We pride ourselves on service, first and foremost; helping our clients get the best cover at the most competitive price available.
