Dave Marsh



“Of South African descent (although most people confuse his accent with English or Australian) Dave has a forensic eye for detail. A true technician when it comes to insurance he puts all his clients’ policies through rigorous audits to ensure they’re getting value for money and exactly the insurance they need. Specialising in D&O, professional liability and insurance for the mining and high-tech industries, he’s the kind of man you need in a crisis. Dave loves working at Axis because of the team atmosphere and the chance to meet a huge variety of people. But truth be told (and when he has the chance), he likes nothing more than commentating on the Springboks playing rugby from the comfort of his armchair.”

  • “Axis has been assisting our business for over 10 years and Dave Marsh and Clive Bird have been exemplary business partners. They took the time to learn our business and have been instrumental in developing insurance products specific to our industry to enable us to better mitigate the risks involved in the way our industry does business. They are a valuable bridge between the customer and the insurance companies, ensuring that any claim process goes as smooth as possible. Dave and Clive make the policy language easy to understand and are always available to meet to insure that decision makers accurately understand the available insurance options. We trust their counsel and look forward to working with them for many years to come.”

  • “We worked with Axis on a comprehensive review of our existing insurance program. Axis made sure they understood our business, including the international operations and our plans for growth, and made a number of recommendations that we implemented. Dave Marsh took the time to explain how the policies fit together and why each element of the program was important. We’d recommend Axis and Dave Marsh to any technology company looking for an insurance advisor.”

    Davis Pais, CFO, Apivio Systems Inc.
  • “We’ve worked with Axis since 2010 with Coast Mountain Geological and a number of publicly traded junior mining companies. Dave Marsh has provided great guidance through claims and potential claims scenarios and has always made sure that we’re insured against the risks that matter to us. Axis has proven to be an expert in the insurance for our industry and a trusted advisor.”

    Jerry Bella, Coast Mountain Geological
  • Eight years ago we were referred to Dave Marsh & Axis. We started with general liability, and with the benefit of their expertise and guidance have since added D&O and E&OE for a package that meets our particular needs, at a cost that we believe represents good value. Throughout, the service has been very responsive and knowledgeable. We have no hesitation in recommending Dave, Karen Milchem and the rest of the Axis team to others, and have been thanked for having done so.
