5-in-1 insurance solution for automotive manufacturers

Our solution can cover your liability exposure, avoiding coverage gaps and providing you with one of the best solutions available today in the Asian liability and recall insurance market.

In today’s global marketplace, the risk of product recall and financial loss has never been greater.

Increasing regulatory scrutiny, pressured margins, contractual requirements, complex supply chains and changing technology can lead to an increase in the occurrence and severity of losses especially for automotive manufactures.

Some product defect risk can be mitigated using technology during production, but errors can affect even the most prestigious, global product manufacturers and brands.

Taking into consideration the specific risk exposures faced by Asian automotive manufacturers and what their clients often contractually require from them, we have built a 5-in-1 insurance solution.

Our new solution can cover your liability exposure, avoiding coverage gaps and providing you with one of the best solutions available today in the Asian liability and recall insurance market.
