Business meeting

There are only a few global insurance brokers able to service the major risk insurance needs of large enterprises. Chances are you already know exactly who they are. After all, managing down corporate risk – and its total cost - is a key part of your job. Thus innovation, flexibility, service, value and the airtight protection that comes with a tailored fit - not to mention a sharp eye for emerging threats - you take as read.

We take these things as read too. Of course it helps that we manage billions in annual placed premiums - and that underwriters trust us and want to work with us. What then puts clear blue water between Gallagher and other global brokers when it comes to major insurance risk strategy and protection?

We are the world’s only insurance broking firm to hold a globally recognised ethical award. Plus, our major risks team exclusively comprises seasoned, senior and hands-on professionals. For you the combination means a quality, in-depth service underpinned by unmatched ethics and unrivalled experience. First time. Every time. All the time.

No surprise then that our people have the superior listening skills, curiosity, technical knowledge and intellectual bandwidth to design and deliver innovative, cost-effective risk management programmes that are simply a breed apart. We blend, share and hone our experience to create a true collaborative relationship between broker and client. It’s a process we call Match, a consultative process that hinges on our thorough understanding of your business. Our goal? Ensuring that risk – and your appetite for it - aligns precisely with your business goals like a second skin.

It may be insurance due diligence or warranty and indemnity strategy that protects private equity deals within corporate mergers, acquisitions or disposals. Perhaps the risk management response to mitigate threats from a catastrophic industrial accident. Or it may be the end-to-end logistics insurance programme that maintains the integrity of your global supply chain.

So wherever you are on the commercial spectrum, you know you’re in the safest of hands. Come and talk to Gallagher - for all your major risks insurance needs.
