Paul Tasker, Managing Director

Catering for the complex risk and product design needs of the corporate sector worldwide

Tasker & Partners is one of 162 registered Lloyd’s brokers bringing risks to the market on behalf of their customers. Since its early days based in a 17th century coffee shop, Lloyd’s has proved time and time again that it can respond quickly to change and meet customer demands. Lloyd’s underwriters are known throughout the world for devising tailored, innovative solutions to complex problems. Lloyd’s covers the world’s most complex and specialist risks – from oil rigs to celebrities, from major airlines to the world’s biggest banks and sporting events.

Global Reach Tasker & Partners has become an established and independent firm of Lloyd’s Brokers operating in the City of London. We serve our clients by helping them to identify their risk exposures and by proposing ways in which to transfer their risks to the commercial Insurers based in the London and International markets. We focus program design, risk consulting, marketing and negotiation. We customise placements to meet the needs of our clients’, providing a quality and efficient service. This approach has substantially increased the list of clients we represent in the marketplace, attracting further key market professionals to join us, and allowing us more diversified skills to offer to our clients.

Insurance Broking Tasker & Partners provide a broking service, accessing the Lloyd’s and London Markets. Our team will be pleased to discuss with you any placement requirements for schemes or individual risks.

Areas of Business The diversity of our clients is a function of our unique access to global Insurers. The London market is an international marketplace and Lloyd’s is an important part of this. Our position in the centre of the market allows us greater flexibility than many of our larger competitors and allows our clients access to the market efficiently.

Business Insurance Tasker & Partners developed the Meridian policy. It is the product we issue for the majority of business risks underwritten in house via our underwriting facilities. More and more brokers are appreciating the fusion of traditional approach and latest technology as the answer for their mid-market commercial risks. The core product covers all necessary commercial combined risks but also includes the flexibility to tailor make a policy for your client. Meridian gives you the “one stop” solution because we understand that no two businesses and their risks are the same.

Personal Accident We arrange personal accident schemes for associations, charities, affinity groups and sports. Wherever there is a risk of accidental injury Tasker & Partners can tailor make a solution. Scales of benefits can be tailored to the requirements of the insured and additional benefits for Physiotherapy, Dental Care and Necessary Emergency Medical Treatment can be added where considered appropriate. Our personal accident schemes for Golf, Football and Cricket players are all available online allowing us to process high volumes of low premium business.

Tasker & Partners’ ClubPM and ClubEX products have proved to be second to none. Accurate rating within the confines of the current marketplace provides a real edge, combined with an extremely knowledgeable team this provides a winning combination. Gary Crowder Dip CII ACM Broking Limited

Trade Credit and Surety The Hoskyn Tasker Partnership Limited is an appointed representative of Tasker & Partners which focuses specifically on providing credit risk management advice and insurance solutions to the corporate sector. Extending credit to customers involves significant risk, however, a business can minimise this risk by insuring against the default or insolvency of its customers. Trade credit insurance covers the risk of bad debt and is an essential tool in credit management as it can provide a replacement of working capital when bad debts impact on cash flow or threaten insolvency itself. We can also offer a variety of bonds, another often essential instrument. It is important to distinguish between insurance and suretyship as a surety bond is not an insurance policy. A surety bond is a guarantee, in which the surety guarantees that the contractor, called the “principal” in the bond, will perform the “obligation” stated in the bond. The most common bonds that are available are contract performance bonds, bid bonds and payment bonds but there are many variations. We will identify the risks and place bonds with the appropriate underwriting partner. Our insurance approach centres on an in-depth understanding of a business’ trading risks and the relevant application of an assortment of risk management applications. Trade Credit and Surety remain non-mandatory purchases but in our view are becoming must have protections. We are happy to work in unison with brokers to ensure customers are offered solutions which help them to trade confidently and safely.

Entertainment & Leisure We have built on our success in the Licensed Trade sector to create products for most aspects of the Entertainment and Leisure arena. We utilise a panel of insurers who are market renown in sector many of whom have given us exclusive arrangements to provide products to venues, participants, visitors and players. By the implication of effective risk management and targeted purchase of insurance protection we can work with you and the client to ensure the leisure business is properly protected.
