Road tested solutions from experts

Our automotive insurance and risk management team brings decades of experience, having worked in auto manufacturing, auto dealers, and as specialty insurers and risk advisors. Our expertise in the auto industry enables us to create tailored programs based on your specialized area within the automotive industry. These programs include:

  • Comprehensive property damage and business interruption program. Insuring physical damage to assets and the consequent business interruption exposure is at the core of protecting business continuity. Our coverage considers several factors, including suitable loss limits, probable maximum loss, retention limits based on the company's risk tolerance and contingent business interruption extensions for supply chain disruptions.
  • Cyber gap insurance. Physical damage due to cyber attacks is a standard exclusion under property all risk and cyber policies. With increasing automation in the automotive industry, especially industry 4.0 smart factories, the exposure to physical damage from cyber attacks is heightened. We have niche solutions to bridge the gap between property and cyber policies by way of cyber gap insurance.
  • Product liability and product recall program. Automotive liability and recall claims can potentially be catastrophic and pose existential threats to businesses. In addition, the increased use of software in vehicles, such as ADAS and IoT in smart-connected vehicles, increases the risk of product failure and resulting liability and recall claims. Our product liability and product recall programs are designed to be fit for purpose and delivers when it matters the most. Our subject matter experts have deep domain knowledge and access to niche underwriting markets to deliver wider coverage and higher limits with wordings that provide contract certainty.
  • Comprehensive transit insurance program. The automotive industry involves significant physical movement of goods, from suppliers to dealers. New direct-to-consumer business models increase the involvement of automotive original equipment manufacturers in last-mile deliveries. In addition, economies of scale necessitate the movement of vehicles from manufacturing facilities in low-cost countries to worldwide consumer markets, increasing the transit risks. Our comprehensive transit insurance package covers all legs of the journey with due attention to aggregation risks at key storage points.
