Access to a network able to cover complex risks.

Operating in environments where new dangers are exposed and faced every day, risks can be all too obvious. Civil unrest, environmental damage and war are all a fact of life in many parts of the world. Making the right insurance crucial for the NGOs, commercial contractors and charities operating there.

Yet many brokers don’t have access to a network able to cover complex risks, don’t understand the nature of the insurance needed, or can’t assist when it comes to working in the world’s most challenging areas.
