The partnership will see the insurance brokers inform and influence key debates and decision-making in public policy development.
IGPP is a new organisation set up to “influence” public policy development by facilitating “engagement and interaction” between the public and private sectors. The organisation is currently responsible for producing and providing research, reports, events and public policy briefings to help “inform, influence, impact and educate” across key topical issues currently facing the UK.
By working in partnership, IGPP and Gallagher said they both can facilitate the sharing of specialist knowledge between the public and private sectors and government departments across the public sector and ensure risk and insurance is considered effectively.
Tim Devine, MD of public sector and education practice at Gallagher, said: “As a key supplier of risk and insurance solutions to the public sector, Gallagher is delighted to support the IGPP. The IGPP seeks to drive communication, collaboration and connectivity between the public and private sectors.
“Working with a group of like-minded professionals across the UK will enable us to share thought leadership and specialist expertise to help guide and influence future public policy.”
The companies added that they can be used as levers to help the “smooth running” of public organisations either through the transferring of risk or by considering alternative options to traditional insurance programmes.
Marc Davis, CEO of IGPP, said: “We are both delighted and fortunate to have Gallagher on board as a key partner.
“We look forward to working with a company of its calibre, innovation and tenacity to inform public policy debate and ultimately influence Government decision making. Its culture based on strong values, collaboration and professional excellence is one that we share, as is their strong commitment to being an ethical company.”
