Phil Jee of Risk Services NW Ltd

07720 592766

phil.jee@riskservicesnw.co.uk

Has your business changed in the last few years? If so, then your insurance programme should have been adapted to reflect those changes. If it hasn’t, then your business could be over-insured, under-insured or, worse still, be exposed to uninsured losses.

We frequently find that programmes that have not been reviewed for a number of years can often become outdated. A fresh pair of eyes can often produce improvements in cover and reductions in premiums.

Risk Services (NW) Ltd are offering a free non-disruptive insurance audit/healthcheck to all Business Network members in the form of a gap analysis to review cover and pricing and ensure their insurance programme is tailored to their needs and fit for purpose
