Dave Marsh has worked in the insurance industry since 2006. His finance background has proved invaluable in presenting risks to underwriters and understanding his client’s perception of material risks.

Dave’s business centres around the mining sector and other industries where the cornerstone coverage is D&O insurance. These are typically publicly traded corporations and other complex risks where the insurance and risk management programs need to be carefully tailored to the specific needs of that individual client. His role involves meticulous collaboration with clientele to discern and evaluate risks inherent to their operations. He covers all lines of coverage for the mining industry, from mineral exploration firms through development and production.

Dave believes in developing lasting client relationships by demonstrating deep industry experience and expertise in all the work he does, communicating clearly and transparently with clients and insurers, and constantly looking for ways to improve on solutions he offers.
