Aon launches free SME Insurance Health Check
LONDON, 6 April 2009 – Aon, the UK’s leading insurance broker, is launching a free and impartial advisory service to SME businesses to ensure their insurance programmes are equipped for the risks of today’s economic climate. Aon’s Health Check will comprise an insurance audit followed by a written report of findings and recommendations.

The Aon Health Check provides businesses with the right tools to:
identify and effectively manage risk exposures that could have detrimental effects on the business;
ensure the insurance represents value in terms of premium spend;
protect the business with adequate sums insured and cover in face of today’s business risks.

Gerry Callaghan, sales director of Aon’s SME team, said: “For many businesses, this is a time of preservation and protection of company assets. Over 100 SME businesses close down every day in the UK, some of which could have been saved by effective management of their internal and external risks. As such, riding out the storm is not an option. We have to do more than just react to the challenges affecting SME businesses so Aon is taking a proactive approach with the Health Check to help SME businesses analyse their insurance programmes. This way, we can help ensure they are adequately and accurately protected in the face of the challenging times ahead.”

“We are talking to a number of FTSE 500 organisations across various sectors who are interested in extending our consultative reviews as an added value benefit to their clients,” added Jesper Paul, affinity development manager for Aon’s SME team. “By ensuring their clients’ insurable risks are efficiently covered, they protect their own business as a result.”

The Aon Health Check is available for any SME business with turnover between £2 - £20 million. For more information or to book the free Aon Health Check, call 0800 028 8502.
