MAC’s Latest initiative for the Isle of Man

Commercial Insurance is now provided by the people behind MAC Financial, as part of a major new initiative for the Isle of Man.

Managing Director Jon McGowan said we launched the business in Spring 2010 and the response from clients has been overwhelming.

MAC Commercial represents a significant development in the range of bespoke services and corporate and insurance solutions offered by the Island’s largest corporate financial advisors. The two companies, based in Athol Street, Douglas, will combine their expertise to help clients achieve their financial objectives.

MAC Financial and MAC Commercial are independent, privately owned companies that provide a range of bespoke financial and insurance services to companies, individuals and their families. Together, these organisations can achieve highly effective solutions in wealth management, insurance and professional risks.

MAC Commercial offers commercial insurance, PI and D&O cover and marine, aviation and e-gaming services onshore and offshore. It can compete with any sized commercial brokers and is well placed to provide exclusive deals with London brokers, along with access to worldwide markets. The company also has exclusive arrangements with Bluefin , one of the UK’s leading independent broker groups.

Jon McGowan said: “This is a major new initiative for the Isle of Man and a significant development for MAC. With our contacts we are extremely well placed to offer exclusive and market leading deals and, we now offer an unrivalled combination of independent advice, expertise and flexibility, backed by an exceptional commitment to personal service.”
