managing change in the arts and not-for-profit sectors






At a time when all arts organisations are continuing to seek ways to manage down costs, Arts Quarter has launched a strategic partnership with Bluefin, one of the UK’s leading insurance brokers and experts in the charity sector, to help ensure that the insurance arrangements you have are cost efficient and provide effective cover.

This relationship between AQ and Bluefin has been in development for almost two years with AQ taking our latest service partner through a rigorous process of induction and due diligence ahead of formally establishing this relationship.

Bluefin’s confidential insurance stress test is an excellent alternative to carrying out a full formal review and can take place at any time in your insurance cycle. It measures the scope, effectiveness and value of your insurance policies and identifies areas which need to be improved without the lengthy process of a formal broker review.
