The Gallagher Difference.

Challenge

Create a global unified insurance approach for assets and investments throughout the U.S. and U.K. and other global cities for Middle Eastern Sovereign Wealth Fund.

How we did it—Building Trust.

Our Tennessee customer was acquired by Middle Eastern Sovereign Wealth Fund (MESWF). They recommended Gallagher as they were acquired by this U.K.—based firm and not familiar with U.S. insurance options. Our U.S. team provided a very attractive option and through the process, MESWF was impressed by our knowledge in the real estate and hospitality sector. Subsequently, they sought our advice on a U.K. asset—an iconic hotel in London's Mayfair district—and we obtained for them the B of R quickly and efficiently.

Result

Recommended for the initial project, the Gallagher team established the customer's trust by demonstrating our expertise in the Real estate and Hospitality sector in the U.S. that expanded to one of their key U.K. holdings. As the client expands across the globe, we are now the preferred broker for their new acquisitions.

Tailored solutions that limit exposure and maximize ROI

From cyber attacks to natural disasters, protecting real estate and hospitality businesses from exposure to risk has become increasingly more complex. We will help you identify contractual, natural, man-made and cyber risks that are potential threats to your net operating income (NOI). High impact areas we review with you include:

  • Management liability—Executive and director liability as well as employment practice liability are just a few of the key areas we review for coverage gaps.
  • Cyber liability insurance—We analyze your cyber liabilities exposure due to digital accidents such as data breaches, privacy loss and network outages.
  • Crisis resilience—We consult on your preparedness such as terrorism and active shooter training and audit coverage gaps to offer solutions for stronger coverage.
  • Claims advocacy—We work directly with carriers throughout the claims process for better outcomes. We are the only major broker to do this.
  • Physical and emotional wellbeing—We develop workplace programs that make for healthier and happier environments aiding in staff attraction and retention. Whether your organization is comprised of part time employees in a single hotel in Florida or career hospitality professionals in a five star resort, we provide programs and benefits that encourage a positive work culture and a thriving business.

Our multidisciplinary approach begins by building a strong partnership with you. This helps us find the best market and leverage carriers for your coverage. We are focused on making sure your investment dollars meet lender’s expectations.
