New Year. Change (and risk) and knowledge

Author – Kobus van Niekerk

Change involves risk of the unknown – be it moving to the city, buying a house, making a career change, starting a business, or facing a new year.
The ongoing pandemic has taught us the value of adapting our behaviour to survive in a world disrupted by change.
For brokers and underwriters in the engineering insurance industry, on-going change requires continuous learning and professional development. We need to keep ourselves up to date with the necessary skills and knowledge to identify the risk exposures of our clients and recommend a portfolio that will best meet their needs.
We understand that engineering insurance can be challenging. Consort has specialist underwriters looking for opportunities to assist you. We are here to provide support to our brokers every step of the way. Together we can work even smarter at what we do.

At Consort Technical Underwriters, facilitating cross border insurance placement has become one of our growing interests. This was born from a simple need to help our clients/brokers comply more easily with insurance legislation within the sub-Saharan Africa region and navigate the many obstacles that come when working in foreign countries. At Consort, it’s crucial that we endeavour to assist brokers with access to trusted and reliable insurers and reinsurers, especially in countries where there is strict prescribed legislation.

Let’s take a closer look at the types of enquiries, challenges, and requirements one can expect when assisting with placements and reinsurance networks.
