Bellrock Broking

Bellrock Broking

Bellrock are the innovators of the Insurance Industry and we do things a little differently. Take our specialist insurance package for property developers and property investment trust companies. As well as offering you extremely competitive premiums, our package incorporates a host of ground-breaking features. For example, acquired properties are automatically included in your cover (material damage & liability) regardless of whether you inform us or not.

This inclusion offers tremendous peace of mind, especially for properties that are difficult to insure such as unoccupied buildings. Bellrock also offers you a see-at-a-glance pre-agreed premium rating calculated pro rata and the broadest possible cover. We understand property investment trust companies and the risks and exposures you face.

Furthermore, the traditional quotation system is dead and buried at Bellrock. Instead, we select an appropriate insurer (often non-mainstream A-rated internationals with modest Australian operations) and actually detail the terms we require.

The underwriter has the simple task of saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ – the ball is in their court to accept or decline the placement. This may appear arrogant, however, most insurers find this totally transparent approach highly refreshing, a real win/win situation that saves everyone time. With every placement negotiated on its own merits, it’s a down-to-earth approach that works.

Furthermore, we select our clients as much as they select us. We only approach clients and industries where we can truly add value.

What we would like to offer EO Brisbane members is a FREE audit on their insurance program, in the audit we will cover the following:

  • Are you covered correctly?
  • Are you paying too much?
  • How can you reduce your insurance and increase your cover?
  • Can we improve your balance sheet by removing bank guarantees and replacing them with Surety Bonds?
  • Remuneration and Brokers incentive to place business with certain underwriters?
  • Is your insurer right for you or your broker?
