The Beazley Difference

BEING BOLD

Freedom lies in being bold. We dare to be different and seek bold possibilities to create more innovative, fair and satisfying outcomes for our clients, brokers and employees. From insuring the highest building in thea world, to the first commercial lunar vehicle to operate on the moon - we boldly go where others won’t.

STRIVING FOR BETTER

Good is a start, but we go all-out for better. A driven community of individuals relentlessly push the needle and creating value. From launching the market’s first dedicated ESG syndicate to the establishment of our business unit focusing on designing digital insurance solutions, we pride ourselves on always going above and beyond. Simply put, at Beazley we go to 11.

DOING THE RIGHT THING

Acting with integrity in a straightforward, decent way is instinctive. Open and honest with others, we show respect and empathy however challenging the situation – demonstrated by our multi-award winning claims team. Doing the right thing makes for a fair-minded, rewarding environment and makes work and life better for all.

Examples or Scenarios

An insured suffered a major fire loss at their distillery products facility, which due to complexities with the age and build type of the property, meant that there was significant potential for a long-term business interruption loss.

Our claims team worked closely with the adjustment team and supported our insured’s use of its own machinery experts to assist in quantum evaluation. Within a few weeks we had made significant interim payments to bolster the insured’s cash flow and enable them to make a series of both permanent and temporary repairs to keep their operations running.
