Martin Camp, Head of the Commercial New Business Division at Lark added, “We are extremely excited at the prospect of being an associate of WMA and are looking forward to working with them and their members.

We have built up a strong knowledge of the exposures faced in the Angel world and have developed bespoke insurance solutions to offer protection to both Investors and investees alike.
