The Aon Real Estate insurance team work with property investors, developers, fund and asset managers, providing bespoke insurance products and advice and helping them to achieve three key objectives:
Leverage and market knowledge – As part of Aon plc, a leading global provider of risk management and insurance brokerage, the Aon Real Estate team place significant amounts of premium annually with UK insurers and across Europe. We have close relationships with all major property investor insurance markets and we know what is possible to negotiate from underwriters to secure optimal protection for our clients.
Fit for purpose cover – our policy wordings are not off the shelf. We work with our clients to develop a programme of protection that is aligned with their business strategy and aligned with the requirements of their lease contracts and loan agreements.
Claims are our priority – ultimately claims are the reason our clients buy insurance. Recognising the importance of swift claims resolution to our clients and their tenants we retain in house claims management expertise. We are also equipped to provide meaningful management information and technical advice and support on major and complex losses.
European and international coverage – our specialist team in London are supported by an owned office network across more than 20 European countries. We can offer local language support and advice wherever your assets are located. We also work closely with our real estate insurance colleagues in North America and Asia Pacific enabling us to provide truly coordinated global advice.
Deal enabling – we have a comprehensive team of transactional insurance specialists to ensure that real estate acquisitions occur quickly, cost effectively with minimal risk retained on balance sheet. From defective title to Warranty & Indemnity & Tax insurance, from environmental liability to construction risk we will support your deal activity.
Responding to lender demands – banks are becoming increasingly demanding when it comes to insurance requirements. We work with our clients, their lenders and legal teams to ensure that our policies meet loan agreement specifications so that finance can be secured quickly.
Sector specialisms – over the years we have developed specialist teams who understand the particular markets and nuances of specific real estate subsectors. Our specialities include Private Equity, Student Accommodation, Logistics/Warehouses and working with offshore investors acquiring European Real Estate.
