About us

Oxbow Partners is an advisory firm exclusively serving the insurance industry. We provide management teams with consulting and insight services. Our clients include the world’s leading reinsurers, insurers, brokers and private equity investors.

Our Management Consulting team helps clients on growth, operations, technology and M&A topics. We excel where engagements span multiple practice areas and where we can combine our deep understanding of the current market environment with insight into the drivers of change.

Our Insights teams are a leading source of data and analysis. Our Market Intelligence product provides qualitative and quantitative insight to UK management teams to help inform strategic decisions. Magellan is used by corporates and investors to find new insurance technology partners and powers our technology and innovation insights services.

Common to all of our engagements is a need for deep industry expertise, bespoke thinking and an agile-inspired approach.
