Insurance & Risk Advisers/Brokers


Professional advice on risk and insurance. Insurance Placements.

Message from the Managing Director, Colin Smith

2012 marks our twelth year in business and we thank our loyal clients for their support.

It also marks a positive response to change demanded by our clients plus global connections through the Unison Brokers World Wide Network. Unison Brokers Global Network has over 180 insurance brokers, advisers and risk management experts.

In 2011 we also rebranded from SIRS to Strategic. The updated brand and change to Strategic signals a closer alignment with the organisation’s philosophy, its activities and its people.

The name Strategic embodies our approach in a single, powerful word.


Some of our clients are asking us to make insurance placements based on the comprehensive reviews of their insurable risks and insurance contracts. We have moved to provide this service as part of our cornerstone process we call;"ARC"- Analyse/Resolve/CoverTM. Our client has the choice. We can provide consulting advice in isolation. However, if our client wishes us to complete the loop as part of our ARC process, we will make the insurance placements.


We have also launched"Risk Radar", a high level on-line diagnostic tool which assists organisations to assess their current position and approach to risk. Click on the image to go to the Risk Radar site.


Partnerships with our clients and Underwriters are keys to the success of our model.


We are duly licensed to provide advice on insurance products.
