Why you need a specialist retail insurance broker
The retail world is exciting and fast paced. As your business grows, and the sector evolves, new risks need to be considered. We help you identify these risks and mitigate against them with effective insurance and risk management advice.
- Injury to customers
Most injuries to customers are caused by slips and trips in store. This is most prevalent where spillages are likely.1
- Sales and supply chain interruption
Interruption at your own, or at a supplier’s premises, may impact your business and your reputation.
- Online retailer insurance
Trading online introduces new risks, including loss of data, and threats from hackers. You may need Cyber Insurance for extra cover.
