International broker AJG announces latest partnership
Arthur J Gallagher has announced its latest deal with a major Australian association as the company looks to continue to build its presence in the association space.

The international player has announced that it has sealed a partnership with the Jewellers Association of Australia (JAA), a peak body for the jewellery industry, to offer “specialist advice and solutions to meet a range of insurance needs.”

Lynette Walsh, manager of Arthur J. Gallagher’s Sydney branch said that the deal with JAA is key for the company moving forward.

“Developing close relationships with association partners like the JAA is key for us,” Walsh said.

AJG hope to be able offer JAA members expert advice on their businesses in a bid to lessen the burden of finding and placing insurers to help business owners grow their companies.

“Business owners are busy running their day-to-day operations and looking after their customers,” Walsh continued.

“Our role is to come in with a deep understanding of the specific risks they face so we can help to protect the business and its people. This leaves the business owner worry-free to get on with what they do best.”

Walsh noted that the company have developed a unique offering aimed at the jeweller market which will help give JAA members Lloyd’s backed cover.

“We have developed our exclusive Jewellers Block policy specifically for Jewellers offering 100% Lloyd’s of London security with Market-leading cover.

“It provides JAA members with a flexible cover with additional benefits that are specific to their needs and the unique risks they face in their business, particularly when it comes to protecting the relatively high value of their stock.”

The partnership with JAA follows similar deals announced earlier this year with a leading tourism board and another country-wide association.
