what’s in it for you?

Whether you are a buyer of insurance, or an intermediary looking for support in areas where you may lack the necessary internal expertise or resources, Aquarium is well equipped to support your insurance purchasing needs.

Understanding the balancing act between the risk vs reward relationship that insurance cover provides is of particular importance. Is the insurance purchase motivated by a contractually mandated requirement to buy, or is there a genuine desire to protect your business against risk? This challenge can be further amplified by increasing layers of governance and regulatory scrutiny that all businesses continue to face.

In support of meeting these challenges, Aquarium acts in conjunction with both the insurance buyer and/or their appointed intermediary to help identify and bridge any insurance gaps. This is a collaborative process the aim of which is to best position the buyer throughout the insurance purchasing cycle. We have a clear understanding of insurers’ appetites within given segments which further aids us in tailoring a more effective and targeted proposition on your behalf. With significant depth and expertise across the core areas in which we focus, we look forward to demonstrating how we can be of value to your business.
