Local experience, global expertise

Globally, our team of over 250 construction specialists place in excess of USD 1 billion premium into the insurance markets for construction each year. This gives us the scale and leverage to obtain optimum market prices as well as the ability to benchmark all aspects of your insurance cover.

Product Innovation

We have a disciplined approach to identifying risk, whether contractual or exposure related, and the ability to assist in tailoring contracts or insurance solutions for you. Where a solution requires more than traditional insurance products, we work closely with you and (re)insurers to develop innovative risk transfer or retention solutions.

Some examples of our innovative approach are:

  • The creation of bespoke first party professional indemnity responding to the ‘no blame’ contractual environment in collaborative contracts
  • The development of non-damage business interruption products responding to project delays by weather or other cause
  • Structured credit solutions, where bank guarantees or cash retentions are unavailable
