Innovative risk and insurance solutions shaped around your business Oval Insurance Broking Insight. Service. Performance.


Insight. Service. Performance. You would no sooner leave your house unlocked as you would leave your business unsecured. But in both circumstances there’s protection that copes – and there’s protection that excels. When it comes to protecting against the unexpected, it’s good to know you can rely on an insurance and risk specialist able to shape intelligent risk management solutions around every contour of your enterprise.


Specialist risk and insurance solutions designed around you Let’s talk about your business insurance policies. They’ll cover your statutory business insurance needs as well as risks that are specific to your business or your chosen field. Are you happy they provide watertight protection? Does your insurance deliver value for money? Are the premiums you pay competitive? Does your broker understand the issues you face – plus the nuances of what you do and how you do it? Is someone thinking ahead to anticipate emerging risks, spot the gaps in your cover and negotiate hard on your behalf? Do you feel like an account number and a renewal date – or a living, breathing client seeking hassle-free risk management solutions that actively contribute to the success of your business? If you’ve thought ‘no’ more than once, then please read on... Insurance may not be glamorous; but we all know it’s important. Poorly handled it can become an unwelcome and expensive distraction that forces your eye off the ball – or your firm out of business – should the worst happen. Expertly handled, the right insurance can make a big difference. Not only to your bottom line, but also to the opportunities you can capitalise upon and the peace of mind that well-specified, effective and intelligent cover brings you, your people and your customers.
