Risk Management adapting to the times.
Disaster risks surrounding businesses have become more complex and massive, with concerns that disasters may occur more frequently than before. This comes from various factors such as the expansion of people's spheres of activities, technological innovations in various fields, increased diversification and globalization of businesses, and climate change.
While there are many different stories about the origin of insurance, a mechanism of pooling money for unforeseen circumstances to mitigate conceivable damage had already existed before the term “insurance” is coined. This basic concept of mutual cooperation in phases of disaster recovery is surely passed down today while factors affecting insurance are becoming more complicated.
Staying conscious of the basic concept of insurance as aforesaid, we would like to work together with our customers to find out, propose and implement the best possible solution to address conceivable risks. More specifically, we may propose to take out insurance, set up an insurance facility, arrange reinsurance, or utilize other risk control techniques.
