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.

Examples or Scenarios

Our insured advised us of their concern related to an adverse weather forecast for their three-day music festival. We immediately appointed a loss adjuster who met with the insured on-site to work through alterations and suggestions to mitigate the impact of heavy rain during the event. On the third day of the event, the heavy rain turned into a lightning storm and the officials subsequently closed the event for public safety. With a plan and communication already in place, the insured was able to reduce their loss and we made a significant payment quickly for artists’ fees. This gave the insured confidence that their claim was covered, protected relationship with their artists, and provided time to assess the remainder of their expenses.
