The perfect blend of financial expertise and glazing know-how.
In many respects, one of the unique strengths of GGFi is its position within the fenestration industry. Not only does it share an office with the GGF team – putting it in close contact with the glazing sector’s leading trade association – but it’s also located close to the heart of the UK’s financial markets.
This places the GGF Group company in an enviable place with access to the best of both of the worlds in which they operate.
First-hand knowledge of the glazing sector
As a provider of quality bespoke insurance in the glazing sector, access to the industry knowledge and technical expertise of the GGF has helped the GGFi team gain a thorough understanding of their clients and their clients’ needs.
They understand the unique challenges of running a glazing company, which can include problems that arise with suppliers and manufacturers as well as changes to the technical and regulatory landscapes. The GGF has a wealth of glazing experience within its ranks and GGFi can call upon this knowledge to help them provide unmatched support to their registered businesses and policyholders.
GGFi Claims Handler Tom Fellowes commented, “Having a close relationship with the GGF has proved to be very valuable in helping us resolve complex claims. The knowledge contained really helps us drill down on some of the more technical and challenging situations that can arise when our insurance policies are put to the test as a result of a claim.”
At the heart of the insurance sector
GGFi is handily located just down the road from the City of London, the epicentre of the UK insurance market. This is where the headquarters of numerous large brokers as well as Lloyd’s of London can be found, collectively where the vast majority of insurance business within the UK takes place. This gives the GGFi team easy access to countless insurance resources and enables them to meet quickly with key partners within the industry.
Jaspreet Harrar, Business Analyst for Correlation Risk Partners works closely with GGFi in providing Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) products.
She underlined the value of this proximity: “With GGFi being so close to our offices, it makes communication so much easier. Of course, we can communicate over the phone or via email, but nothing beats the engagement of a face-to-face meeting. Especially when facing complex or involved discussions, it is easier for us to meet up with the GGFi team at short notice and go over things in detail.”
There are also a large number of insurance seminars and workshops held within the City of London on a wide variety of relevant topics. Attendance at these events enables GGFi staff to ensure that their knowledge of the insurance industry is kept up to date. Market developments and regulatory changes can have a significant impact on how GGFi operates and by extension on the services they can provide to customers.
By ensuring that GGFi is on the pulse with regards to the glazing sector and the insurance industry, the company is well-placed to provide their clients with expert knowledge and competitive rates.
