Business Interruption

Client choice of cover - to maximise business continuity
Property Performance gives clients great flexibility after a Business Interruption loss by allowing them to select the most favourable basis of cover. Cover on a Gross Profits basis covers loss of Business Income up to the maximum period of indemnity. Cover on a Gross Earnings basis covers loss of Business Income up to when the property is repaired and the business can resume operation.

Optimising client recovery
The most favourable basis of cover depends on the individual loss scenarios. To ensure your client gets the benefit of this, we undertake both calculations and pay the greater of the two amounts.

When is cover on a Gross Profits basis advantageous?
After a loss, repairs are completed quickly and the business resumes operations but there is an ongoing loss of business income, as it takes time to recover sales lost to local competition. In this situation a Gross Profit basis of claims settlement, covering loss of business income up to the maximum indemnity period may be beneficial to clients.

When is cover on a Gross Earnings basis advantageous?
After a loss repairs take longer than the indemnity period. This can be the case after a local catastrophe creates difficulties sourcing labour and materials, or there may be delays when the premises are not owned and controlled by the insured. In these situations cover on a Gross Earnings basis up to the point where the property is repaired may be beneficial.

Property Risk Engineering

Today, the risks to business can seem increasingly diverse and complex. International markets, changing workplace and regulatory frameworks, together with emerging technologies and the development of new working practices and partnerships may all combine to present new uncertainties.

The speed of business activity can also make these risks hard to identify; and control of the exposures elusive. We aim to partner with our clients to mutual benefit via thorough analysis of their business operations and associated risks. Services are delivered worldwide by highly-qualified, property risk engineers well versed in international standards (such as NFPA) as well as local legislation, codes and standards.

Early involvement in development projects to anticipate property protection issues is the key to avoiding expensive retrofits later. Such as, for example, ensuring that sprinkler systems are designed and installed in accordance with appropriate international or local standards and meet the fire challenge presented.

Different sectors and business activities can require different loss prevention strategies and our engineers reflect this with a pragmatic approach working closely with our clients. We draw upon a pool of experienced experts straddling the disciplines such as electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, security and fire protection.  

To help our Commercial Property clients identify, manage and control risks that may pose a threat to their organisation, we have compiled a comprehensive library of plain speaking, best practice documents that go beyond the usual site risk engineering survey. These documents, named Insight, provide an easy to read explanation of a wide range of issues that may affect your organisation and offer best practice solutions to help you manage these risks. You can find them here
