As the hard market continues and capacity tightens, Lloyd’s brokers with the right expertise can work with you to find solutions for your hard-to-place risks. Read our case study on how we secured Liability cover for a Broker Partner running out of options with a difficult risk:
We were approached by a Broker Partner looking for Liability cover for their Marine client. The broker was struggling to find a quote due to:
Multiple business activities – they were Trawler Owners, Marine Engineers, Oil Distributors, Fish Salesman, Fish and Ice Merchants, Fish Exporters, Auctioneers, Retail Fish Merchants, Property Owners and offered Crane Hire with Drivers
A late appointment of the Broker
The trade being outside the usual appetite of Insurers
Poor claims experience
And a previous broker already covering the Market, closing off most of the already limited options
Due to the above conditions, the initial wholesale broker had come back with no solutions for the risk, resulting in the Broker Partner having no options for the client and even less time to find a solution.
We worked closely with the broker to understand the risk further and put a strong presentation together. Our specialist teams then worked diligently with Insurers they knew would be open to the risk.
Through our strong relationship with one of our carefully selected Insurers, we managed to secure a quote. This was the only quote in the market that would cover the wide range of business activities, allowing the Broker Partner to continue to serve their client.
