Our Underwriting Services
Our Property Insurance solutions are exclusively available through Brokers, and are designed to provide comprehensive protection to safeguard your clients’ property and profits. These insurance policies are highly customisable to meet the unique needs of your commercial clients.

- Fire and Allied Peril Incidents

In addition to these primary coverages, we also offer the flexibility to arrange the following supplementary protections up to agreed limits:
- Coverage for Accidental Damage
- Protection against Theft
- Insurance for Incidental Transit Risks
- Glass Coverage
- Money Protection

Our insurance policies are meticulously crafted to align with the specific requirements of your clients. These may be categorised under various names, including:

- Multi-Peril or Commercial Coverage
- Comprehensive Buildings Combined Policies
At PARTNER RISK, we prioritise your clients’ unique insurance needs, offering tailored Property Insurance solutions to fortify their financial security.
At PARTNER RISK, we understand that every client is unique, and their insurance needs can vary significantly. That’s why we offer Multi-Peril Insurance policies for those clients who prefer this comprehensive approach to coverage, often recommended by their trusted Brokers.
Our Multi-Peril Insurance policies are thoughtfully designed to provide all-encompassing protection, offering peace of mind in a single, unified package. We work closely with Brokers to ensure that their clients’ specific needs and concerns are addressed, crafting a policy that aligns with their requirements.
With Multi-Peril Insurance from PARTNER RISK, you can trust that your clients’ valuable property and interests are comprehensively safeguarded against a wide range of potential risks and challenges.
At PARTNER RISK, we take a proactive approach to safeguarding your clients’ interests. That’s why, when we serve as the lead or sole insurer on their property and/or multi-peril insurance policies, we automatically extend our commitment to protection, by offering assistance with the purchase of SASRIA insurance policies.
SASRIA insurance is designed to provide an additional layer of security in the face of unpredictable events.
It serves as a vital shield, ensuring that your clients are covered in the event of damage to property and consequential loss. Such events may include:
- Political civil unrest
- Civil commotion
With SASRIA insurance from PARTNER RISK, your clients can navigate uncertain times with confidence, knowing that their assets and financial stability are well-protected.
Our Insurance Solutions are different
Customised Insurance Solutions
At PARTNER RISK, our insurance solutions are far from ordinary. We provide cover to the commercial market, catering to clients with combined property and business interruption exposures ranging from ZAR 250,000,000 to ZAR 1,000,000,000 (VAT exclusive) at their primary business locations. A typical client within this range often boasts a turnover between ZAR 500,000,000 and ZAR 1,500,000,000.
In addition to adhering to industry-standard premium payment terms, such as minimum and deposit premiums, burner premiums tranches, continuity premium discounts, aggregate deductible and loss limit discounts on premiums, and flexible annual or monthly premium payments, we go the extra mile. Through our principal insurer, Guardrisk, we offer a unique feature: the low-claims-bonus, also known as ‘’PayBack.’’
The PayBack Undertaking sets aside up to 5% of the annual premium to help policyholders make risk management improvements. If your client’s claims remain below a predetermined level, known as the Threshold Claims Ratio (TCR), specified as an endorsement to the policy, then these funds are utilised for enterprise-wide-risk management enhancements. This may include risk assessments, fire mitigation training, or change management initiatives.
Please note that this undertaking is exclusively available when we issue the policy as the lead insurer.
Benefits To Your Clients
The advantages of PayBack to your clients are manifold:
- Additional Risk Mitigation Funding: Clients receive supplementary funding for risk mitigation, bolstering their maintenance and improvement budgets.
- Enhanced Insurer Insight: The insurer gains a deeper understanding of the client’s key risk areas and controls, facilitating optimal policy structuring and pricing.
Beyond standard industry practices like risk surveys, PARTNER RISK conducts tailored risk mitigation plans aimed at enhancing your client’ risk management profiles. These interventions yield substantial benefits including:
- Lower Maximum Loss Estimates: Clients benefit from reduced estimates of potential losses.
- Cost-Efficient Insurance: Lower insurance costs due to improved risk profiles.
- Effective Loss Prevention: Enhanced preventive measures against potential losses.
These risk management initiatives are developed in consultation with appointed Brokers and can be jointly funded by the client and PARTNER RISK.
