Sonia Brody, HR Manager, Siemens Ltd
"We engaged with IHI because we were finding this market harder and harder to navigate given
the changes in the industry. With the changing faces of insurers and the introduction of new
ones we wanted a consistent trusted level of support that could help us and our employees

more we were paying than we actually needed. IHI also act as advisor on the Aer Lingus Scheme.
I cannot recommend Patrick and his team highly enough."

"Dealing with spiraling costs in the health insurance market was getting beyond our brief in
terms of market knowledge and we found ourselves at the mercy of the insurers and what best
deal they presented. Patrick gave us a fresh view on how the various levels of cover compare
between insurers and in each insurer's case was able to identify substantial savings over and
above what each insurer offered directly."
