TRANSPORTATION

Transportation affects nearly every enterprise around the world. Transportation exposures, however, can present significant financial and operational challenges to firms in this industry.

ACE offers a comprehensive, consultative approach to risk management and delivers the solutions that help clients achieve the rewards that lie on the other side of risk.

RETAIL/WHOLESALE

Retailing is one of the world's largest industries. As retailing and wholesaling have become more global, competition has intensified. In addition to the global economic downturn, today's retailers face a wide range of challenges, including industry consolidation, employee attraction and retention, and business continuity. And as always, consumers are demanding ever higher quality, at ever lower prices, for the products they buy.

For a retail business, these trends create a host of risks: strategic, financial, operational, and hazard all of which can prove costly.
ACE specializes in addressing the risk and insurance needs of retailers and wholesalers. Our approach includes a thorough assessment of client risks and solutions tailored to meet clients' specific needs. 

REAL ESTATE

Real estate owners, managers, and developers operate in a dynamic industry in which every day "bricks and mortar" risks such as natural hazards co-exist with more complex challenges, including environmental liabilities, partnership and contractual obligations, and stricter lending requirements. The ever-changing nature of the industry is bound to spawn new risks that must be dealt with.

POWER & UTILITIES

As the backbone of the industrial world, a utility's primary goal would seem to be simple: absolute consistancy and reliability. But this is no easy task in an environment that is constantly evolving on several fronts: in technology, world politics, government regulation and the marketplace.

Some risks are manageable and can be retained, while others should be transferred to those better suited to accept those exposures. Success lies in the ability to quickly and accurately determine which is which. We help companies evaluate risk and determine ways to remove or alleviate risk exposure that could significantly impact future profitability and help ensure that the lights can always be turned on.

SURVEYORS

Our specialist Surveyors Practice comprises of an experienced team that have dealt with a variety of large firms including multi-disciplinary practices.

INSURANCE PROGRAM REVIEWS

Insurance programs are often carried forward from year to year without any change at a time the business itself would be facing challenges and changes in business processes, expansion plans, diversification, territorial expansions, and corporate philosophy.  

Unless reviewed periodically, with time the insurance programs will not adequately respond to all of the exposures created by the changes to the business and that could prove fatal to the survival of the business. We undertake assignments to investigate and do in-depth analysis of the exposures associated with the business and then conduct a gap analysis exercise to identify loopholes in cover if any. We then present our clients with recommendations that would make the insurance program effective and up to date.

CONTRACTUAL REVIEWS

A mistake often committed by some contractors at the bidding stage, is to ignore the indemnity, Liability and insurance provisions of the contract. After a contract is awarded it would be too late to budget for exposures and or negotiate it with the Principal. The cost of risk and insurance could shift a contract from being viable to being uneconomical to perform.

We assist our clients with reviews of the contractual obligations under development and construction contracts. Such contracts vary from being simple straight forward contracts to the other extreme of being complicated and complex. We advise clients on the insurance & indemnity provisions to enable them understand the full potential of their exposures and to help them properly budget for the exposures or transfer it. We also do work for lenders and or principals to ensure that the contracts and the related insurance provisions adequately protect their interests.
