Stackhouse Poland Private Office, is a specialist division of Stackhouse Poland Insurance Group. We advise on the specific, personal insurance needs of the very wealthy.

For these individuals and their advisors the arrangement of insurance protection for numerous physical assets both in the UK and abroad can be unnecessarily expensive and time-consuming.

Our aim is to work with the Principals and or their advisors to simplify the purchase of insurance, whilst consistently delivering the highest levels of cover and service.

We can design a master insurance programme including the following asset classes:

  • Homes and Contents (UK & International)
  • Fine Art Collections
  • Luxury Assets (Jewellery, Watches, Wine)
  • High Performance Cars and Family Fleet
  • Yachts & Private Jets

This consolidation of policies into a single, master programme should provide you with improved protection and the potential for sizeable premium savings, all backed up by a first class service delivered through a dedicated team.


Starting with an exploratory discussion we seek to understand the Principal’s current arrangements and goals. We are happy to sign non-disclosure agreements and then enter into the complimentary audit phase. Our detailed audit allows us to comment on the quality and value of current arrangements, identify any deficiencies and make recommendations as to how the design and structure of the Insurance programme could be improved.

We have consistently demonstrated that significant premium reductions are possible when we consolidate all private policies with a single insurer and single renewal date.

We work closely with a select panel of Global insurers in order to cater for any international Insurance requirements.

To further enhance our service across the US, we have partnered with Ericson Insurance Advisors, a leading Private Client broker licensed in all 52 states. Importantly, this allows us to arrange a US Umbrella Liability policy for our clients to help protect against the significant awards made in the US courts.

Our global design with local service means you only deal with one adviser as we aim to provide just one renewal date, no matter where the physical assets are located.


Stackhouse Poland is one of the UK’s leading specialist insurance brokers. Our Private Office team has been delivering award-winning advice to the very wealthy over many years.

Our strengths lie in our ability to truly understand our clients’ insurance requirements in the context of their lifestyles. This allows us to design an insurance programme specifically for each clients needs.

We are passionate about the advice and service we deliver and this is illustrated by the dedicated team that will look after you, led by James Agnew and Darren Humphray, Directors and owners of the business.
