Stening Simpson have established a committed team of specialists who enjoy a challenge and delivering the results for the benefit of all concerned. The majority of our work comes as recommended business from entities who recognise our expertise in providing specialist tools, skills and advice. The Group has high ethical and professional standards and is committed to providing solutions that are in the best interest of our clients.

The Group have been responsible for the placement of major risks both in Australia and overseas and are trusted by blue chip clients to partner with them to advise and implement pragmatic solutions for complex business issues.

Our range of clients varies greatly covering private and public sectors, international corporations together with financial institutions.

The Group structures composite risk arrangements, using the commercial market with export credit agencies and multilaterals. Assignments include advising on risk management programmes for multinational corporations, reviewing major international projects and advising on the affect risks could have on a project’s viability.

Stening Simpson’s commitment is to market risk programmes aggressively and to obtain the most competitive terms available whilst at the same time ensuring we do not compromise the level of cover or the calibre of carriers recommended. Only “A” rated global carriers are invited to participate on placements and a member of the allocated executive team personally presents all presentations to the syndication of carriers.

Stening Simpson staff are frequent speakers at international conferences and contributors of articles and comments.

We have managed to keep the size and cost structure to a minimum which further enhances our competitive edge over the larger firms which lack the flexibility and mobility of our group in responding to the needs of clients. You are not dealing with a bureaucracy, but rather a very personalised team of professionals.

Although we believe we have achieved unrivalled efficiency and service within our industry, we continue to strive for excellence to meet changing market needs.
