Front Row is pleased to announce a merger with Globalex after five months of discussion. Globalex is one of the largest specialized film insurance brokers in Quebec with 12 staff located in their Sherbrooke St office.

The combined company is licensed and registered in every province and is the largest broker as measured by premium volume for each of the four major film insurance companies: Chubb, Premiere/Everest, Allianz/Firemans Fund and Travelers / St Paul.

“Our volume with the insurance companies gives us a competitive edge when negotiating coverage, premiums and claims settlements for our clients,” says David Hamilton, President of Front Row based in Vancouver.

Front Row is an independent broker that works on behalf of producers to transfer the risks of filming to insurance companies for a premium charge. Should a claim occur, Front Row ensures that the production company receives the money that they are owed per the insurance policy.

Front Row also has offices in Toronto and Vancouver.
