For the past 20 years Simon has enjoyed a career in the Insurance industry as both a broker and underwriter. Prior to being a director at FD Beck Simon had a successful 8‐year management career with one of the worlds largest general insurers, which saw him deal with and structure insurance programs for some of Australia’s largest insurance purchasers.
To date Matthew has enjoyed an 18‐year career both locally and abroad in the capacity as insurance broker and insurer. Prior to joining FD Beck Matthew held the position of underwriting manager for one of the country’s largest professional and financial risk insurance providers and recently undertook a 2‐year management contract with a Lloyds of London Insurance Syndicate. Both of these roles are in addition to the 4 years that were spent with one of the country’s largest insurance broking firm where he once again specialized in tailoring insurance products to meet the needs of professional service providers.

FD Beck is part of the largest insurance broker network in Australia and New Zealand, the Steadfast Group. Comprised of over 340 brokerages spread across more than 1100 offices, the Steadfast Group generated over $6 billion in sales in FY16. This scale gives Steadfast flexibility and influence when negotiating with major insurers on behalf of Steadfast brokers and results in us being able to provide our customers with access to multiple insurance companies, a broad range of products, competitive pricing and valuable advice.
As a Steadfast Broker we feel we are true to their motto “Strength when you need it”. We provide strength not only when quoting on your insurance requirements but also throughout the cover period, at renewal time and provide extra strength should the need arise to make a claim.
Since being appointed to manage our insurance some five plus years ago you have not only educated us as to the intricacies of the various insurance policies but have shown us the value of effective risk transfer and stressed that coverage not price should be the determining factor in finalising any insurance policy. Your ongoing communication, open dialogue and personal engagement throughout the policy period provides us with the confidence that we need to concentrate and grow our business.
Thank you very much for the continued service and communication in managing both our insurance and risk management program. Your ability to arrange insurance both locally and more recently for our overseas operations has been seamless and your involvement in settling our recent claim gives us the confidence that we are dealing with an expert in the insurance field.
FD Beck is proactive and always looking to provide a solution to our business needs. At each and every renewal, no matter how small the premium, FD Beck investigates whether there might be a better provider for our business considering not just premiums but the entire product. Enjoying the growth that Latitude 37 has been through over the last few years has come with its challenges and it has been of great comfort to know the FD Beck have all of our insurance needs in hand.
