Life Science and Technology
If you operate in the world of life sciences, technology or healthcare the insurance advice you need is far from standard, it is specialist and requires expert advice.
The UK is a world leader in the life science, technology and medical device industries. From start-ups to companies with a global presence, the risks involved differ significantly and you need to talk to an insurance broker who understands this world.
Based in Oxford, FOCUS is one of only a handful of specialist advisers able to deal with the insurance needs of these unique industries and have special arrangements with a number of insurers who can provide bespoke cover for your company.
We have close relationships with Oxford Innovation, Oxford University Innovation and Oxford Sciences Innovation and have established ourselves as the specialist local broker within this industry group.

FOCUS is also a founding member of the STEM Advisers Hub - a collaboration of business experts in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) sectors offering helpful information and resources via the online Forum.
We pride ourselves in taking a personal approach to arrange bespoke insurance solutions for businesses in these challenging environments.
