Adroit Insurance Group is passionate about serving the Geelong community.

After winning the Geelong Business Excellence Awards Business of the Year in 2016, Adroit is committed to sustaining its already impressive brand.

“Our organisation is big on being part of the community,” Adroit Insurance Group Geelong branch manager Darrell Fenton says.

“We’ve strived to build that over the last 15 years. We love being a part of the Geelong community.”

Adroit is a sponsor of this year’s excellence awards and Mr Fenton said it was a terrific opportunity for local businesses to be recognised for their hard work.

“It’s a great opportunity to be involved with all the other businesses in Geelong,” he says.

“We want to be a part of it. We were absolutely rapt to win it last year.”

Adroit is a perfect fit for Geelong.

“Geelong people certainly enjoy their city,” Mr Fenton says.

“The people of Geelong always try and help out local businesses. It makes it a nice, strong community.”

Service is Adroit’s motto.

“We are certainly a service based organisation,” Mr Fenton says.

“Adroit offers superior customer service through a dedicated account manager who provides the best insurance solution for each and every one of our valued clients. Our actual KPIs are measured by client contact and visitation rather than just dollars.”

While Geelong has taken its share of knocks in the business world, Mr Fenton said the city always recovers quickly.

“The city of Geelong is going well – it’s up and about at the moment,” he says.

“There’s a good feel for the city and we want to grow with it.”

Review Before You Renew

We all have things we subscribe to that end up not fitting our needs down the road. Maybe it’s that magazine you subscribed to back in 1992, or the gym membership that you haven’t used since you finally started fitting back into those jeans. Your insurance policy shouldn’t get lumped in with these things.

It’s one of those things that’s misunderstood; your policy is not something that you just set and leave as it is. It’s something that you should always be reviewing, in conjunction with your broker. – Damon Edwards, Branch Manager.

 

Insurance policies renew automatically, but you’ll be notified by your insurance broker or financial adviser before that happens to see if anything has changed. This is the perfect opportunity to review your insurance policies and ensure your coverage still suits the needs of your business.

Here are a few examples of changes that could affect your insurance cover:

  • A significant increase (or decrease) in revenue
  • A significant increase or decrease in stock
  • A purchase of a new asset like a property or piece of machinery
  • A change in business activity
  • A change in market conditions

These business milestones, like growing your staff, opening a new store or upgrading to the latest equipment, are exciting. They can change your life and improve the profitability of your business. As much as they change the way your business operates, they also change the requirements of your insurance policy – and sure, that takes some of the romanticism out of it, but these are the assets you’re working so hard to protect.

Life grows along with you, so make sure you enable your insurance policies to do the same. Your Adroit Insurance Broker or Financial Adviser will get in touch with you to review your insurances, so take that opportunity to update them on any changes in your life or your business. If your broker or adviser doesn’t do this, talk to one of our trusted Adroit Brokers for a free no obligation insurance review.

The owners and managers of businesses must sometimes wonder about the number of risks they will need to deal with as they begin another working day. No matter how big or small the business, the financial exposures they personally face as a result of something going wrong are vast. Leaving aside the physical risks such as fire or accident, the exposures related to the management of the business itself are an everyday fact of life.
