As a small business leader, cost control and efficiency are high on your list of priorities. Howden can help you with both, by offering tailored insurance and consolidated admin processes.
Some SME leaders choose to go direct to insurers, especially though price comparison sites. Choosing ‘off the shelf’ may appear to be cost-effective, but the lack of personalisation can often leave you overpaying or exposed – or even both.
What we offer is different
We build a tailored offering around your business, to protect against all your everyday risks. We also offer powerful claims support, so in a crisis, you’re never on your own.
We can help you:
- Save money
- Cut down on admin time
- Improve the risk management in your business
- Get claims paid out.
Why bundling works:
Consolidating renewal dates and admin processes means that, as a business, you spend a shorter period of time each year thinking about insurance – you can get everything you need in place with fewer meetings, calls and emails. So you can focus on what you do best.
Our consultants still take the time to review your risk and learn about your business, but by cutting down admin for you, we cut down on admin for ourselves, and for insurers. Because of this, cost savings can be passed on to you.
Tailoring bundles: what are your options?
The two main things you need to protect yourself from are the loss of business assets and costs associated with legal action being taken against you.
Office / Commercial property
Commercial property insurance is designed to cover loss or damage to your buildings, offices, contents, stock etc. Good policies also provide coverage for business interruption.
There are many opportunities to be sued as a small business, be it from clients, customers or employees. Liability Insurance covers you against third-party claims for injury or damage to someone else’s property, including bodily injury, data loss, defamation and slander and legal defence.
If you are in the construction business, or commissioning works, speak to us. We offer very competitive rates on Construction All Risk cover. For SME businesses, we can provide comprehensive cover for building projects up to 300 million pesos or $6million USD.
For motor fleet insurance and personal motor insurance we offer extremely competitive terms, often with superior coverage and lower premiums than the aggregators – especially when there is a some claims history involved. And if you’re like most businesses with vehicles on the road, it’s more likely than not that you’ve had to make a claim.
