Arthur J Gallagher has entered into a three-year deal to provide risk management and insurance broking services to the University of Glasgow on an exclusive basis.

University of Glasgow insurance and risk manager Ian Thomson said the ability to offer genuinely local support and claims handling capabilities were key factors in its search for a long-term insurance partner.

Gallagher client servicing director Alex Sawers added: “We are absolutely delighted to have been appointed by the University of Glasgow, which is not only a prestigious centre of research and learning with global reach but also a major employer within the city with more than 6000 people to look after.

“This new partnership aptly demonstrates the depth and breadth of resources we can offer all our customers as a community-based broker, able to offer excellent local service backed up by deep sector expertise and capabilities with a national and international focus.”
