About

ABOUT US

Located in Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh and Fife


Established in 1995, Borland are a privately owned independent insurance broker.

We provide an all-encompassing service for our clients across the General Insurance sectors.

We are fully independent and not tied to any single insurer. As such we provide our clients with the most suitable products for their needs. Our professional approach is a blend of personal service coupled with an up-to-date knowledge of the market.

We are a client centric company who truly believe in providing the “Added Value” to our customers through “Market Leading Products”, “Intelligent Working Practices” and “High Quality Service”.

We work with and for other professionals – solicitors, accountants, land agents, bankers, financial advisers and other third parties – who may be appointed by our clients. Our expertise and ability to work with this broad spectrum of professionals ensures that while our support and advice is wide-ranging, it is also co-ordinated.

TEAM

If there’s one common aim the Borland team has in common, it’s an ongoing commitment to developing lasting relationships with each client and to work in partnership with you to secure the best insurance solution for your business or individual needs.

The business was started by its two founding Directors, Ross Smith and John Silcock in June 2006.

PARTNERS

Professional Introducer. Partner with us and add value to your clients.


If you’re a solicitor, accountant, property management company or independent financial adviser, then becoming a Borland professional partner is a secure way to enhance your level of service to your own clients.

We offer a wide range of insurance products designed for businesses, property owners and wealthy individuals and work closely with the nation’s leading insurers to get your clients the best possible cover for the most competitive price.

Launched in 2010, our professional partner scheme has already built into a network of quality introducers. Each of them has recognised that partnering with us means dealing with a broker that shares their commitment to providing a first class service.

Of course we understand the concerns that can arise from recommending the services of another firm to a client whose trust you’ve worked hard to gain. So we’ve developed a procedure that will give you confidence in the relationship – all without putting your own reputation on the line.
