Graham Cook

I’m an independent broker with more than 25 years commercial insurance experience. Multi-territory, corporate, banks & asset managers, D&O, technology, life science, property and liability are among my areas of expertise.

I founded Talisman Insurance Broking Ltd in the UK to create a responsive, flexible and creative broking company that could adapt quickly to client needs and emerging risks. My extensive experience in client management (e.g. Investec) means the Talisman team is fixated on client service and adding value to the insurance process.

In January 2021 I founded Talisman S.à.r.l., an independent commercial broker based in Luxembourg, and supervised by the CAA. The Luxembourg team provides EU-compliant solutions for businesses and executives, and the company was created in response to a client need for independent, bureaucracy-free commercial broker services.

Whether looking after a UK or Luxembourg-based client, my professional goal is to always think like the organisation or executive in front of me. I always aim to deliver the maximum amount of confidence whilst minimising administration and stress for the client.

Our team looks after a range of clients – from small to global – and we specialise in multi-territory programmes. I particularly enjoy the more complex and unusual insurance requests.

When I’m not looking after my clients, I really enjoy watching a good game of rugby. Having worked with clients in Luxembourg for the past few years, I was very surprised to discover that there’s quite a rugby culture there. One of the many interesting facts I’ve learned about Luxembourg!
