Avoiding the risk of underinsurance
Did you know 19% of businesses haven’t reviewed their indemnity period in the last two years? Despite this, 91% of SMEs believe they have the right level of cover in place*.
What is underinsurance?
If your business is underinsured, your company’s assets are being insured at less than their true worth, leaving you inadequately protected. Therefore, in the event of a disaster, you would be compensated for less than the true value of your loss.
