Rule Engine - Munich Re


Human error, mechanical failure, accidents – unforeseeable events that trigger liability claims can never be entirely ruled out. Manufacturers and service providers of all kinds can face substantial indemnity risks. We are specialised in delivering tailored solutions to complex and individual liability risk scenarios.

Liability risks are an unavoidable part of doing business. In many industries, liability risk scenarios have become extremely multifaceted and challenging to assess – a trend that is continuing.

However, these risks should not pose an obstacle to business success: an experienced partner with a deep understanding of the challenges you face can deliver the support you need. In close cooperation with clients, we are well experienced to write and handle coverages for required liability risk scenarios.

5 reasons you should consider talking to us:

1. Your business is potentially liable for personal injury or property damage.

Our main focus is public and product liability insurance. Depending on your risk  appetite and limits insured, we support various programme structures. We believe in strong partnerships, so we also consider long-term agreements.
