About Us


Colin Cosgrow established Benson James in 2004. Prior to this Colin held directorships in the city with two multi national insurance broking houses.

He formed Benson James in the belief that a gap existed in the market due to the numerous amalgamations and mergers of insurance brokers who could no longer offer an acceptable service to medium sized companies and he saw this as an area Benson James could fill.

Benson James believes quite simply that businesses want:

  • A comprehensive insurance programme at a competitive price
  • A good quality service based on common sense and delivered in plain English
  • An approach based on professionalism incorporating informal and friendly meetings

Our mission is to provide all the above in an environment in which our clients feel relaxed and comfortable and satisfied.
