Insurance services and solutions tailored for the unique risks in the insolvency profession

Published 14 October 2020

2020 has certainly been a challenging year in so many ways. The Gallagher Insolvency & Turnaround (Gallagher I&T) team understands the immediate impact to the insolvency profession from the Federal Government’s insolvent trading relief being extended to the end of 2020 along with the proposed legislation reforms to the insolvency regime. Here’s how we’re preparing to support and assist our insolvency professional clients.

During these challenging times in 2020, Gallagher I&T has been focusing on the following in preparation for 2021 and beyond by

  • completely overhauling our internal systems and procedures to unlock time and cost efficiency for our clients.
  • continuing to invest in new staff in 2020 and fast tracking development of their insolvency insurance knowledge, including participation in the ARITA Introduction to Insolvency Program.
  • continuing to enhance our automatic insurance cover parameters, introducing new insurers and new product lines to our facility for a broadened scope, and continued promotion and education of the insolvency profession to a range of insurers.
