Guest Presenters

Insurance Discussion and “you signed what?"

Presented by Ben Corby, Associate Director

Finance & Insurance (Brokers) Australia

As a SMBiT sponsor and provider of insurance, the focus of the next wave of visits will be on feedback from you. At present I have underwriters at the ready to work with me on providing a tailored insurance solution EXCLUSIVE to SMBiT Professionals members. I have great products already in distribution (and I will talk more on the Axis swap-over) but I have been given an opportunity to improve them as required (subject to negotiation)  I also want to gauge your understanding of the Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Policy. I have concerns that it’s bought on “requirement” without much understanding of its “necessity”.

FIA is a SMBiT Professionals Bronze Sponsor.
