JM Glendinning Insurance Brokers North West has announced it will continue its strategic partnership with Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) - the largest Chamber of Commerce in the UK - following a successful first year in partnership.


Over the last 12 months, JM Glendinning has supported GMCC members with their insurance needs through seminars and advice on subjects including market conditions, cybercrime, international trade, reinstatement values and rising fleet premiums. As a result of the partnership the business has also been appointed as insurance advisor by several organisations, including the GMCC itself, to provide its insurance broker services.


Manchester Music City, a partnership of people and organisations from across Manchester’s music landscape who collaborate to support the city’s music sector, is one such GMCC member which JM Glendinning is working with.


Gareth Davies, head of operations and finance at Manchester Music City, says: “We approached GMCC to help Manchester Music City obtain insurance protection. They pointed us in the direction of their insurance partner JM Glendinning who assisted us from start to finish. We found the team to be knowledgeable, supportive and committed to finding the most appropriate options, for the most competitive price.


“As Manchester Music City is a new entity and our business model is evolving, we don’t possess the historical data to inform choices and so finding suitable insurance wasn’t a straightforward process. . However, at each stage the JM Glendinning team were incredibly helpful, and ultimately helped us secure the insurance we need for an excellent price. We would wholeheartedly recommend their services.”


Lewis Crowe, head of business development at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, says: “We are delighted to continue our work with JM Glendinning and their fantastic team. Through our strategic partnership JM Glendinning provides support and comfort to our members in relation to their insurance requirements, keeping them updated on any changes in the market to ensure they have the peace of mind that they are making the right choices regarding their insurances.


“The team’s personable and friendly approach is invaluable to the Chamber and we truly see the JM Glendinning team as an extension of our own workforce. This benefit is not only for our members as JM Glendinning is also the Chamber’s insurance broker, assisting us with assessing and selecting the policies to deal with our multi-faceted business. The team are always happy to spend time with us to deal with questions we may have and assist us with understanding the often complex world of insurance policies.”


Says Matthew Stuttard, JM Glendinning North West MD: “It’s been an absolute privilege to work closely with GMCC members and provide advice and support to some outstanding businesses in our first year of partnership with GMCC. We’re looking forward to finding out more about member businesses and seeing what the year ahead will bring.”
