Our Risk Philosophy

It is our view that the true risk exposure of a business is best known by our clients. We advise that you buy the highest levels of cover they can reasonably afford. However there are certain indicators which will help dictate the right level of cover for all businesses. Some sectors are traditionally more litigious than most, for instance, the pharmaceutical and financial services industries. Low frequency but high severity type of claims may be expected.

Some sectors are more hazardous than others. For example, construction at height. Individuals responsible for huge business critical projects and or have significant sign-off authority; they may need reasonable amounts of cover because of the  position. Most of our customers start off with lower level of cover which they increase as they grows and as their exposure changes.
