Specialised Liability Insurance and Surety Products
Partners in managing your risk
Our purpose is to challenge the status quo of insurance for the benefit of all our clients. Our aim is to shed light on a topic that has traditionally been somewhat obscure, to the detriment of all working professionals in South Africa.
Liability insurance has historically been dominated by large insurers, with very little transparency in terms of how products work and why professionals need the cover they are sold. Corporate ‘bullying’ has been a recurring theme through the decades, leading to professionals paying for insurance they don’t need, or ‘sticking with the tried and tested provider’ out of fear for choosing something else and in turn paying too much for indemnity cover.
