Corporate Insurance for Corporations & SME’s:

 

Asset Class:

 

 

1. Fire & Named/ Allied Perils 

 

Fire insurance is an important policy that can protect your company’s assets against losses as a result of fire or its named perils. It is important to note that businesses that do not own the premises in which they operate can also cover fire on the contents and renovations etc. done at the premises.

 

What it offers:

 

A standard Fire Insurance policy will protect you against loss/damages caused by: 

 Fire 

  •       Lightning 
  •       Explosion
  •       Damage caused by water or fire extinguishing agents
  •       Damage resulting from attempts to gain access to the fire(e.gFire Dept/ Bomba)
  •      Smoke damage caused by fire

 

A fire policy can be expanded in terms of coverage by paying additional premium. An additional premium buys perils such as, which would otherwise not be covered should the event occur:

 

a. Aircraft damage 

b. Earthquake and volcanic eruptions 

c. Storm tempest

d. Flood 

e. Explosion

f. Impact damage 

g. Bursting or overflowing water tanks/pipes 

h. Electrical installation

i.  Bush & lalang fire 

j. Subsidence or landslip 

k.Spontaneous combustion 

l. Riot, strike and malicious damage 

m.Damage by falling trees or branches 

n. Sprinkler leakage

 

 

 

2. Fire Consequential Loss 

 

Fire Consequential Loss or Con Loss for short is as an Business Interruption insurance which covers and compensates losses suffered as a result of interruption to your business. 

 

What it offers:

 

Our Fire Consequential Loss Insurance will help defray your expenses and make good on your loss of profit following a fire or any other perils specified in your Fire Insurance policy.

 

Therefore, it is important to note that businesses must take up a Fire Consequential Loss Insurance with a Fire Insurance policy. This policy is also more relevant to manufacturing concerns as opposed to those in the service industry.

 

In addition, Con Loss can also indemnify against fees charged by public accountants who may be engaged to help prepare and certify documentary evidence in the fire damage and loss of profit claims process under a separate sub section called Accountants & Auditors fees. Another point to note is that Con Loss can also cover Salaries and Wages of your workforce according to your needs during the shut down of operations after a loss.

 

 

 

3. Burglary

 

What it offers:

 

A burglary policy insures your business against losses from burglary or attempted burglary. Specifically, with this policy, if either the property insured or your business premises are damaged because of the break-in, you're covered. However, the insurance is only in effect if damaged property is on the business premises specified in the policy at the time of break-in.

 

Types of property that can be insured are: 

 

  •       Stock  (Only stock levels above RM500k is eligible for stock declaration)

 4. All Risks

 

An All Risks policy is used to cover assets of the company that are usually smaller in size and “portable” in nature. Although the policy is named as such, it does not mean that the asset will be covered under every circumstance, therefore the misnomer. It is however, a policy with the widest scope of cover.  Companies usually cover their PABX system, photocopiers, laptops etc. under this policy.
