Industries

 

Mining

 

We have partnered with our London wholesale broker, Price Forbes and Partners (PFP) to provide specialized solutions for Australian mining companies.  This is on the back of our own extensive combined Mining expertise.

 

While this international capability sets us apart from our competitors. Our own local experience is across the industry and extends from construction to operational producers, all commodities, junior exploration companies, and companies that provide services to the sector such as drilling contractors or contract miners.

 

Professional Services

 

We act for a number of professional service companies. Our clients include consulting engineers, accountants, recruitment and HR specialists, risk and compliance experts, and non-competing insurance brokers. It is testament to our skill and know how that these types of companies rely on Woods Midland Insurance Brokers to deliver their insurance solutions.

 

Corporate

 

We have clients that are in manufacturing, others in the marine space, publically listed oil and gas exploration companies, fire and safety specialists and a myriad of other corporate clients. All expect insurance solutions that are reviewed, measured and analysed regularly to ensure correct coverage. This fits perfectly with our mantra of delivering personalised insurance solutions.

 

Small to Medium Enterprises

 

Whether you are in retail, operate a restaurant or a bar, a gym or a fitness centre, are a photographer, a small IT company or a not for profit organisation or any other type of SME, we take the time to understand your business requirements and deliver the appropriate insurance solutions.

 

This personalised analysis of individual client needs is unusual in the insurance industry in this sector as many organisations view the SME market as an opportunity to commoditise products by delivering ‘one size fits all’ solutions via online platforms utilising inexperienced, poorly trained or unsupervised staff.

 

We have seen first-hand the impact this can have on clients where in some cases clients have paid for insurance policies that would not have responded in the event of a claim.

Personal

 

Where our clients understand and value broking advice for retail products such as home and contents, motor vehicle, pleasure craft and travel insurance we are happy to help.

 

In the Home and Contents space for homes with a replacement value over $500,000 we recommend policies such as the Chubb ‘Masterpiece’ and we also have a strong relationship with Chubb that provides our clients with travel insurance options.

 

For pleasure craft Club Marine and Nautilus are two examples of the companies we work with.

 

National and International

 

We represent clients on a national and international basis.

 

Through our strategic partnerships we are able to ensure that our clients in whatever jurisdiction they operate are able to comply with local legislative regimes.

 

Our international broking partners provide access to international insurance markets in places such as London, Bermuda, Zurich, Paris, Munich, Johannesburg and Singapore.
