Business Risks

Assets and Business
Interruption
Always one step ahead of the damage

If your company suffers damage, you will first think of the costs you are going to incur to reconstruct, replace or repair the damaged assets because maintaining your ability to produce and deliver is vitally important. Comprehensive and customised insurance of your capital assets and materials is indispensable in this respect. As your partner, we assist you with a detailed risk identification, analysis and processing. We advertise the insurance coverage on national and international insurance markets in order to ensure that you get the best value for your money.

But after the damage itself, more loss may follow due to the interruption of your business. Downtimes – e.g. caused by a problem on the suppliers' side – can quickly cause enormous losses. In such a case, NW Assekuranz is your partner, in particular with complex, international networks of companies. Optimal protection requires expertise and foresight in order to make sure that a policy will actually take effect in the event of damage. NW Assekuranz identifies your risks and insures them exactly as necessary.

Technical Risks
Do you want to be safe anywhere in the world? Works flawlessly.

To insure your machinery, plants and projects, technical know-how and many years' experience are decisive. Our comprehensive understanding of various technologies and the industry know-how regarding the risks related to your business are the prerequisites for a tailor-made insurance concept. We have the engineers and specialists required for optimal management and perfect placement of your risks on the insurance markets. Technical insurances basically include:

  • Erection all-risks and erection/business interruption insurance
  • Builder's risk and builder's risk/business interruption insurance
  • Equipment breakdown and equipment breakdown/business interruption insurance

In international project insurance in particular – be it the erection of an offshore wind farm in Taiwan, the construction and operation of a power plant in France, or the installation of a production line in China – we accompany our clients to every corner of the earth.

As part of the project team, we like to get on board early on in order to be involved in drafting the insurance-related provisions in supply and service contracts. Identifying, analysing and checking the insurability of risks resulting from contractual agreements plays a key role in this respect.

Transport
Your goods move around a lot. Good thing someone keeps an eye on them.

Our offer also includes cargo insurances. They pay out compensation irrespective of liability if a carrier involved cannot be held liable for a damage incurred by the shipper, e.g. in case of an inevitable incident. Such a situation can be a threat to the shipper's existence if the goods were uninsured.

General Liability
You bear the responsibility. But not the risk.

If you run a business, you run a risk. Sooner or later, every business finds itself in the situation where it has to take responsibility for a damage it caused. This is where a good general liability insurance takes effect, and we are experts in this field.

Digital Risks
Cyberattack? We provide cover.

Due to the increasing digital interconnection and the corresponding dependence on IT systems, cybercrime has long since become a huge problem for the global economy. IT has evolved from a mere supporting process into an indispensable part of a functioning enterprise. This change entails a change in the treat situation. However, many companies are not yet prepared for the new threat, and consequently, their risk to fall victim to cyberattacks is high.

We are the German specialist in this area. In close cooperation with the key risk-takers, we have developed market-leading insurance products that offer you all the components you need to insure cybercrime risks. Such as our 360° Cyber Workshop: We show you where your insurance cover needs to be complemented. In addition, thanks to our systematic approach, you will get valuable information about other IT security improvements. This way, you can successfully safeguard your digitisation strategies!

Management Liability
Your reputation? Invaluable. Everything else is a calculable risk.

As managing director or member of the board, you make decisions every day; as member of a supervisory board, you are involved in crucial processes. In these positions, you take calculable risks for your company – and for yourself as well. Board members, managing directors and senior management are increasingly in danger of getting into the crosshairs of law enforcement agencies, which jeopardises the company's public image and the executive's reputation as well es your private assets. Because when push comes to shove, that is what is at stake.

We analyse your personal risk situation with you, and we establish the coverage you need within the framework of tailor-made D&O liability insurance.

Accident
Accidents happen. But you don't have to worry about medical care.

With employer-owned accident insurance, employers provide an attractive offer and considerable added value for their employees. Of course, employers are obligated to insure their employees against work accidents anyway. However, the statutory accident insurance provides no more than a minimum cover. Employer-owned accident insurance can significantly improve this situation. It offers your employees much better, higher-quality coverage. Depending on the insurance contract and tariff, it covers your employees' professional activities as well their private life. It is quite common practice for this insurance to apply 24/7 all around the world.

The accident insurance tariff is compiled from a wide variety of services like building blocks. You as as employer and policyholder can compile a customised service package for your employees. The more efficient the insurance, the more your workforce will appreciate it as a non-tariff benefit with a high added value.

NW Assekuranz helps you find the best solutions for your employer-owned accident insurance. We don't just make you feel properly insured – we make sure that you and your employees really are properly insured.

Credit Risks
Have you unfinished business? We will step in.

Good business is based on trust. That is why customers who fail to pay their bills are so annoying. Protect yourself against bad debts! With a policy tailored to your company's needs, the corresponding risks become calculable – and the actual losses lessen. Credit checks and coverage of your clients minimises losses due to bad debts. Trade credit insurance is another important component in the financial protection of your company.
