Perceived High Risk

Often businesses are perceived as high risk even though they have excellent health and safety records and measures in place. We work with businesses to fully understand their sector so that we can approach the insurers and present the risk in a clear and factual manner.

For example, a rope access technician will be classed as a high risk business to insurers. As your broker we will work with you to find out more about the risk, i.e. what is in place to prevent accidents, what is your claims history, what are the wider risks across the sector, what health and safety measures are in place? Often these insights are the difference between obtaining cover and getting a decline.

Gun retailers will worry an insurer instantly. When you find out more about the sector you realise that visitors are appointment only, details are taken in advance, and no ammunition is kept on site. The premises are reinforced steel, the guns are secured by metal cord and alarmed, they have police response alarms, and use a specialist contractor for the transportation t of the guns When you know and present the information to the right specialist insurer you can see how they will now view the risk differently. Only by delving deep into these sectors can you obtain the information required to obtain competitive terms.
