We are an international independent broker formed by a management team from leading insurance brokerage firms and national and international insurance companies.As an Independent Broker, we do not have any kind of "external" pressure or the need to obtain results for the quarterly financial markets. Our independence allows us to always work in the exclusive interest of our Clients and creates a completely different dynamic that focuses exclusively on finding innovative and tailor-made solutions to ensure the unforeseen success of our Clients. Focused on your risk prevention and protection needs, we embrace your challenges as if they were our own. Together with you, we work as partners to proactively achieve the agreed objectives and protect your interests at all times.
Our goal is to relieve companies and individuals from the financial and mental burden of risk by protecting their projects with innovative and targeted solutions. Together with you, we aim to analyse the problem, evaluate the economic, security and social impact, creating the best business strategy for your needs and using innovative solutions created exclusively for you. We are careful to the constant evolution of the entrepreneurial market by translating innovations into insurance solutions. In addition to the traditional risks easily available on the insurance market, we focus on insurance situations that you did not know could be insurable. Our commitment is to provide tailor-made solutions for risks not covered by traditional policies. No matter what the problem or how strange the demand is, our goal is to find ways to transfer the resulting financial risk to the insurance markets. Remember: no demand is too strange. Whatever keeps you up at night, we strive to find a workable solution to transfer the risk from your balance sheet to the insurance markets. Not only extended insurance coverage and improved existing policy conditions, but also a focus on and cost reduction of the insuranceprogramme from your income statement. Through our Information Technology department we provide all our clients with access to our innovative Insurtech platform to improve information flow management.
If your company has a low risk profile, we can get premiums and discounts on your insurance programme. However, if you need assistance to help you manage your risks more effectively, we provide you with our expertise in risk analysis and management and business continuity planning. Effective risk management will help you keep your business risk-free and stop regardless of what may happen. Our team can develop strategies from scratch or work with your internal risk management resources to provide specialist support.Risk assesment, risk management, risk consulting are just words that if not perfectly applied remain just words for their own sake. Our analysis starts from the verification of the reference sector in which you operate, from the analysis of current and future risk protection needs, through site visits and interviews with company resources; we verify the insurance program in place through the analysis of coverage and costs and we translate this data into exclusive insurance programs for your company. In this perspective we are constantly updated through our internal staff and external specialists, with projections of future risks due for example to climate change, country risk, IT architectures and other data necessary to create protection programs for your company translated into insurance and risk mitigation solutions. Not only policies but even prevention.
