Risk Management

Risk management guidance on loss prevention.


Identifying business risks, prioritising and managing them is much easier to talk about than to put into practice.  However, as Brokers appreciate, Risk Management should be a priority for all, be they SME’s or large international businesses.

Why? Because of the competitive advantage available for those who are proactive, such as:

  • Reduced insurance premiums; either the underlying rates or simply by having an improved loss history and being of interest to a wider insurance market. Similarly, a pre-shipment survey may assist in improving the risk and thus the underlying premium.
  • Reduce exposure to uninsured losses such as increased cost of working or deductibles.
  • Reduce exposure to regulatory or legislative fines and penalties.
  • Help create efficiencies in a business offering direct cost savings or increased business.
  • Indirect cost savings might include being a more attractive workplace to secure and retain the best talent available.


In the first instance, our specialist and experienced Underwriters will offer you a pragmatic insight into what makes an attractive risk. In respect of liability matters we can offer thoughts on your client’s contracts and changes to standard operating terms, how we see them compare to market practice and how for instance a new contract could be negotiated into a fairer balance between risk presented by the contract and the reward (income) available from it.


For your clients who have large storage facilities or complex legal relationships with their customers.  Businesses who get involved with heavy lifts or difficult lifts may benefit from a pre-shipment survey, or a loading survey.  Perhaps a shipment from a difficult territory.  Customers shipping high value goods may benefit from advice.  Warehouses who are making changes to internal racking may find it useful to discuss replacement sprinkler head types.  Identifying the weaknesses of a supply chain or perhaps couriers writing new contracts for their customers.  All those examples could benefit directly from or through Fiducia MGA, where we can offer real, tangible, professional and experienced help.
