We understand that the role of a good broker is much more than simply designing the right insurance product and placing it at a keen price. We also offer our clients an in-house claims management team who liaise with insurers to negotiate claims.
We have a broad experience in handling Marine and Professional Liability claims and commit ourselves to:
The importance of personal service in combination with a dedicated contact
Pro-active and experienced employees
Efficient and effective manner of working
- Permanent accessibility, including after hours contact.
The value of a broker is twofold:
1. Embed systems and processes to maximise defensibility of claims
The broker proves their worth when a major claim occurs, or even worse, when it’s contested. Of course, when you have a Howden policy you have broad, responsive policy wordings that have been skilfully designed to avoid tricky pitfalls.
2. Make sure claims are a learning tool to feed into future planning
It’s not always easy to see why claims are happening, but if you make a point of learning from them, you can roll out risk mitigating initiatives that make a big difference to your future claims experience.
We cut through chaos to empower you with a clearer view.
