Managing Director & Founder

Hugo Jacquot

Hugo is the founder and owner of Fort Insurance. He created Fort Insurance in an insurance market that had seen the acquisition of so many independent brokers by large corporates which resulted in the lowering of the insurance services provided to customers. A new independent broker was therefore the best response to the need of customers for exceptional and highly flexible services.

With more than a decade of experience in the insurance industry, Hugo has worked with many large insurance firms including AXA and Steamship Mutual managing worldwide portfolios. His experience, management skills, attention to detail and devotion to client service have gained him the trust of many owners, managers, captains and professionals of the industry.
