For both traditionally insurable and emerging risks, we use our experience to influence and drive insurance market appetite for water risks. We also host water forums for some of the largest companies within the sector. These forums provide a space to network and exchange opinions with our peers. We also use the forum to test our sector propositions, launch or refine new products, demonstrating our desire to innovate.

We provide a full range of services including insurance placement, risk financing, captives, risk consulting and claims management. In addition, we have access to a range of products specifically for the water sector.
