Why use an Insurance Broker?
An insurance broker can help you save time, money, and stress. Brokers will also assist you in understanding the coverage you require and can purchase that coverage on your behalf from the local Australian or Global insurance markets.
Often, businesses will make a decision based solely on price, which can backfire in the event of a claim if you discover you're not adequately covered, or even not covered at all, for the loss that occurred.
Brokers provide advice and assistance to ensure that you are properly protected, whether it is for business property, operations, customer liabilities, mobile assets.
The advice is tailored to your specific requirements.

How do I know if my insurance coverage is adequate for my business?
The best and most accurate way to know if your insurance coverage is correct is to get a
second opinion from a Qualified Insurance Broker.
ASCOT can help you review your insurance coverage by undertaking our Insurance & Risk Review of your current insurance covers. With this review we will provide analytical feedback if the insurance cover in place meets the specific needs of your business.
With our expertise we can also advise you on any gaps in coverage and provide recommendations for additional coverage that may be necessary.
How often should I review my insurance coverage
It is a good idea to review your insurance coverage on an annual basis, or whenever there are significant changes to your business such as expansion, new products or services, or changes to the overall industry environment.
At ASCOT we have systems and processes in place to ensure we review the insurance coverage with our clients each year.
If you have not spoken to your current Insurance Broker in the last 12 months then please
