How we Work

As an under­wri­ting agency, we are autho­rized by our insurance compa­nies to sign marine insurance poli­cies and handle claims.

On the basis of autho­rity agree­ments we assess risks, compile indi­vi­dual and tailor made insurance cover, sign poli­cies, manage encash­ment and inde­pendently hand­ling claims and recoveries.

However, in case of a claim, risk carrier and provider of services always remain those insurance compa­nies mentioned in the corre­spon­ding policies.

We solely offer our services and know-how to insurance brokers and risk carries repre­sented by us.
