Thus, the collaboration between the specialist communities of the different countries is now being strengthened to provide clients with better access to expertise within business interruption, natural hazards and cyber risks, among other areas.
"Through competence centres we utilise the best resources and skills without having borders," says Jukka Forssén, Head of UW Property Nordic at If Industrial.
"The best of our expertise and knowledge from If Industrial is gathered and transferred to practical services, tools and products, which improve our ability to provide optimal solutions for our clients. We are a truly Nordic company, which is our strength. We have underwriting specialists, as well as claims, risk management and other specialists in all Nordic countries and also in the UK, Netherlands, France and Germany. Most of our clients are international and operate in multiple countries. Working across borders we can utilise the best of our expertise and skills to the benefit of our clients,” says Forssén.
Clients will benefit from improved services, such as risk management tools and lessons from losses – and enhanced insurance products that are better tailored to meet client needs. The knowledge is shared through client seminars, articles in If News and Risk Consulting and, of course, through direct client service and interaction with If's specialists.
