Working with Piiq Risk Partners will introduce you to a new and different perspective.

Our story

The team at Piiq consists of some of the top talent in the aviation and insurance markets.

Their knowledge and experience speaks for itself, but the key ingredient that makes this team stand out is their shared drive and desire to create a new, independent, client focussed business.

Piiq is part of the insurance division of BGC Partners Inc. (NASDAQ: BGCP), a leading global brokerage and financial technology company.

Everything within Piiq is designed specifically for the aviation industry. The talent, the technology and the distribution.

Why is that good for our clients?

Technology

We have access to some of the most cutting edge technology in the world.

Expertise

Our expert team consists of some of the best talent in the market.

Perspective

A new team provides a new perspective on how to best meet our clients' risk management challenges.

Security

Piiq Risk Partners is part of the BGC Insurance Group. Our clients can be confident they’re dealing with an organisation that has a long term, financially stable parent with an impressive technology pedigree.

What does Piiq mean?

We’re expecting a lot of questions about where the name comes from!

Our name is inspired by several different elements.

Derived from piquant and peak, it suggests ‘exciting to the mind’ and ‘the point of highest activity, quality or achievement’, which aligns to our customer experience.

But we also wanted something fresh, contemporary and vibrant to reflect the type of business that we are building.

It is a bold name to go with our bold ambition.
