Pound Gates is excited to be bringing our expertise to the media sector. Working in partnership with AXA XL (part of the AXA Group), our goal is to provide alternative insurance solutions to Studios, Equipment Rental, Post Production, Sound & Lighting and Event Management companies.


Our team is headed up by Terry Pryke who joins us having worked exclusively in the media sector as an insurance consultant to some of the most recognisable names in the media industry.

Having worked extensively with small, mid-market, corporate and global clients, Terry’s experience enables him to quickly understand the logistical operations of your business and identify your immediate and potential risk exposures. He can advise you on the appropriate insurance products available to protect you against the threats that can have a significant impact on the financial stability and longevity of your business.

In addition, Terry is able to provide advice and guidance on how you can better manage your own risks in order to reduce the likelihood of claims occurring and how to minimise the disruption to your business when they do occur.

The pool of specialist media insurance brokers has significantly reduced in recent years due to mergers and acquisitions. This can be especially frustrating for media companies that require industry specialist advice, products and a consultative approach, whilst benefiting from the competitive premiums that can only be achieved through market competition. The recent trend has left many companies with very few avenues through which to obtain alternative quotations from a media industry specialist. We have worked closely with AXA XL to address the balance and have designed a specialist product, Keylight, specific to the media sector.

From day one we will work with you to identify your company’s immediate and potential risk exposures. We will present you with a comprehensive insurance package to provide you with appropriate financial protections. Our clients receive ongoing support, advice and guidance beyond the insurance products, with access to a wide range of risk management services and tools.
