ABOUT RISKEX

OUR COMPANY

Riskex Pty Ltd is staffed by experienced, tertiary qualified risk management professionals. We are a professional consulting firm offering personalised and specialised property and liability risk management products and services to the insurance industry, legal fraternity and their clients. Our consultants have worked in all facets of risk management, as Facilities Managers, Risk Managers, Consultants, Investigators, Expert Witnesses and  Underwriters.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our focus is to provide risk management products and services related to Property and Liability. The quality clients to whom we are targeting our services, realise that managing risks involves protecting employees, customers, property and the business overall. We therefore offer our skills and experience in all areas of Risk Management including: Liability (Products and Public), Property Protection, Occupational Health & Safety, Environment and Incident Investigations.

Risk Management has never been a more crucial element of running a business.  Rising premiums have forced organisations to opt for substantially higher self insured retentions or policy deductibles (excesses) thus forcing them to act more and more and more as though they were not insured. Insurance companies are becoming more technical and responsible with their underwriting and spending more time analysing the risks involved in individual contracts as well as industry statistics.

Injured customers are now far more aware of their rights and becoming more litigious. Add this to, previously low insurance premiums, recent world events and the collapse of major local insurance companies, the result is sky-rocketing Insurance Premiums.

We believe that these costs can be controlled and have seen many clients benefit enormously from implementing comprehensive risk management systems and pro-active claims procedures. The “spin offs” being not only protect their customers, reduce insurance premiums and losses but also the overall efficiency and quality of the organisation.

Our philosophy is to provide quality products and professional services to assist you to meet your LEGAL, MORAL and FINANCIAL obligations using practical and cost effective means. Riskex Pty Ltd is fully committed to the application of proven risk management principles in the prevention and reduction of property and liability losses and associated business interruption.

We look forward to working with you in this critical part of your business strategy.

Insurance Surveys & Policy Renewal Reports

Your insurance premiums are determined by a number a factors. Usually, until information to the contrary is available, your premium will be determined based on perceived or inherent industry risk factors. Yours previous claims history may also be considered. Generally, good risks subsidise the poor risks.

Underwriters can be more willing to give better terms when they can see that effective loss prevention and mitigation strategies have been implemented and plans are in place for continual improvement.

Our independent survey reports provide the information required by Brokers to market your account or renew your policy and for Underwriters to accurately and fairly price it.

Our reports contain not only the necessary underwriting information but also prioritised recommendations for risk improvement.  Many insurance survey reports cover only the physical aspects of the risk. We believe that just as important, if not more important, is the attitude and quality of the Site Management Team. So we report on that as well.

We may be able to assist in negotiations with your existing broker and/or prospective insurers to get you a better deal!
