  2. Second, Rees Astley is a private business. Therefore, the directors that run each and every one of our offices have a personal stake in making the business a success, a success that can only be achieved by keeping clients happy.
  3. Third, the peace of mind that the insurances are underwritten by HCC International Insurance Company PLC a well established and quality insurer with an A+ rating from Standard and Poors, A++ from A.M. Best and AA- form Fitch.
