About waib

We’re a commercial insurance brokerage based in Northampton, the traditional home of footwear manufacturers.

Our main areas of expertise include manufacturing, retail, wholesale and distribution, which fits perfectly with the BFA members.

Our benefits to you as your insurance broker are:-

– To recommend relevant and suitable policies, to protect your business and give you peace of mind.
– To save you money by helping to reduce your premiums.
– To provide risk management advice to reduce genuine incidents, whilst also ensuring you have a robust defence against spurious claims.
– To help minimise the impact of any claim on your ability to trade and help you get back up and running as quickly as possible.
– To ensure you have adequate sums insured, cover limits and indemnity periods to protect your assests, your staff and your profits.

We assess your company’s exposures against your existing insurance arrangements to ensure your current cover is adequate, to avoid underinsurance and a lower-than-expected settlement amount, in the event of a claim.

We help identify gaps in your insurance programme, whether that be recommending a policy not currently in force or highlighting any punitive endorsements/exclusions – some of which often remove the very cover you think you’re buying.

We provide risk management advice to ensure you have a robust defence against spurious claims.

If you have had claims, we’ll analyse your claims data to highlight trends and help you manage that risk to reduce future claims.

Our approach will demonstrate our value as a credible and expert advisor in providing insurance and risk management solutions. Best of all, our confidential reviews are free.

The BFA is run for and by our members – by becoming a partner you join a network of some of the foremost businesses within the UK footwear sector. Whatever business products or services you are marketing, BFA members are always keen to adopt that which enhances their business, makes their operations more efficient or increases their profits.

The BFA hold regular networking events and themed webinars, where we encourage partners to take the reins and showcase their businesses and services to our membership. We also enable partners to have an input in what we say to the Government and we ensure they receive Whitehall’s responses first-hand.
