    Proactive risk management

    Our service goes beyond quick and fair settlement of claims. We understand the distress and disruption that a loss brings. For clients, an important attraction of Beazley’s service is the very detailed advice on security that they receive with the cover.

    This includes embracing the latest technologies to enhance security and reduce the likelihood of theft, such as smoke generating systems, ‘smart water’, security glazing, locks, alarm sensors and multi path signalling.

    We also utilise specialist surveyors, security consultants and trade associations unique to each country, providing expert risk management advice to the policyholders.


    The core products cover risks of direct physical loss or damage to stock, including, if required, while in transit away from the premises.

    Depending on the territory, cover may be extended to include general business contents, glass, buildings, exhibitions/shows and loss of profits on a fire and perils basis.


    Up to $10,000,000.

    Further increases are available as special acceptance.
