A new consultancy has been set up aimed at helping small and medium- sized brokers in risk management.

The consultancy, established and run by Brian Tuffrey, is designed to help smaller brokers compete with their larger counterparts who have their own risk management departments.

Tuffrey will offer brokers a risk management audit, including advice on material liabilities, marketing and producing products, competition in the marketplace, suppliers, and services used in the UK and overseas.

Tuffrey is currently working for the Chartered Insurance Institute and previously ran his own broking company specialising in the general insurance market.
