Natural Resources

Natural resources (property and casualty) is a specialist team with global expertise, offering risk and broking products and services to the natural resources industries. With our industry insight, market relationships, global footprint and indepth technical resources, we help clients to lower their overall cost of risk.

The natural resources industries are renowned for complex and unique risk management challenges, so it's vital that all the elements of a company's risk management strategy are aggregated effectively to lower overall risk costs. Our specialists understand these challenges and have years of experience to find the right solution for the right challenge.

They make the right connections across Willis Towers Watson, so that risk identification, risk retention and risk mitigation tools are harnessed effectively to traditional risk transfer solutions.

In essence, our team has four core offerings:

Insurance program design, negotiation and management:

  • We design and place sustainable insurance programs, prioritizing long-term, secure, relationships with insurers.
  • We regularly test these programs and develop alternative insurance capacity to ensure that our clients are not overly dependent on any particular insurer(s) and that they benefit from market competition for their business.

Risk engineering:

  • Our engineering team offers a range of services including risk assessment and benchmarking, loss identification and qualification, and technical advice and consultancy.
  • We construct customized risk engineering programs to best serve client internal needs in addition to insurance placement requirements.

Contractual and regulatory reviews:

  • Our understanding of clients’ contractual and regulatory obligations helps us implement correct risk transfer and mitigation strategies, and provide additional certainty and accountability to the risk management process.
  • Full integration within contract negotiations enables us to assist and advise early in the process to help avoid costly commitments.

Claims advocacy:

  • We don’t outsource insurance claim functions to third parties, helping ensure that your claims are paid fully and quickly.
  • We provide complete administration solutions that support the needs of both participants and employers, with a focus on timely and accurate administration.
