Survival Capability For big-picture future-proof insurance …We’re with you

High quality, independent commercial Insurance brokers are an endangered species, as business insurance runs the risk of becoming a one-click commodity fuelled by algorithm not altruism. Despite the confident claims of well-known providers, the truth is, too many businesses buy into inadequate, generalised insurance cover, compromising their ability to survive in the event of a catastrophe or loss.

The Survival Capability Service … We’re With You

We are not a one-size fits all provider. We will build our ongoing service around your business, maintaining contact, building relationships and providing support as frequently as required.

If you need to process a change, perhaps to add a building or asset, we’re straight on it. Meanwhile our Risk Solutions service allows us to continue to assess, monitor and control risk.

In the event of claims we interface with underwriters, claims handlers and loss adjusters, for larger claims acting as the insured’s Loss Assessor, assisting in the presentation of the claim and negotiating the most favourable settlement.

So you can get on with doing what you do best, in the assurance that we are acting in your best interests to maintain protection, prosperity and peace of mind.

The Survival Capability Process

We want to click with you. Not just click and move on…

If you ask us to quote, we want to get to know you. After an initial meeting, our new client survey will seek to find out exactly how and why you do business. We don’t generalise or assume – instead we strive to understand your individual processes, objectives and assets. So we can be an asset to you. We will assess your existing insurance programme and claims experience and, if appropriate, Cowens Risk Solutions will evaluate risks and liabilities, as an underwriter would.

Based on the information gathered and our breadth of experience, our specialist Broking Unit will survey and source underwriters to fulfil your specific client needs. Our close relationships with underwriting partners ensure total quality control and consistency of approach, proposing partnerships that are about efficiency not bias.

Whilst favourable premiums are part of the package, the extent of cover, liability and future security are fundamental. We will present a report offering general advice and specific critique of your existing cover, highlighting any potential areas of under-insurance, along with a quotation for the current programme and for the cost of improving it.

Should we have the pleasure of winning your business you will receive confirmation and statutory certificates and will be allocated a dedicated handling team to consult on a day-to day basis and in the event of a claim. We will check and amend policy documents and schedules and supply an Insurance Risk Register detailing your provision and service contact team.
