Examples or Scenarios
An example of the value that our claims service can bring was following an audacious robbery of a safety deposit facility in Hatton Garden in London, was the way in which we rapidly settled our policyholders’ claims. Feedback from one of these policyholders speaks for itself:
“Given that barely a month has passed since the robbery, with police officers still on the scene, I cannot help but say how impressed my team and myself are with the speediness of this settlement. I thank God for giving me the sense to have taken out a proper insurance policy - with a proper insurance company!”
