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We   frequently find that programmes that have not been reviewed for a number of   years can often become outdated.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.
