Silent Review of Your Insurances

Chamber Partner JM Glendinning Insurance Brokers can conduct a silent review of your insurances. The benefit of a silent review is that it can be conducted at any time during the policy year but an ideal time is six months prior to the听 expiry of your insurances. This takes away the time restraints and pressures of a renewal date without disturbing the relationship with the current broker/insurer. A full review of your insurances will be undertaken and this sometimes highlights inadequacies in covers and gives you a detailed analysis of premium in the current market conditions.

When engaging with JM Glendinning for a silent review of your insurances it will in addition:

  • Assess that your current risk and insurance program is fit for purpose

  • Highlight relevant warranties and conditions that you need to be aware of

  • Ensure that the claims reserving is correct and fair

  • Review Sums Insured

  • Review Pricing
