Risk Management

Need to connect with the right advice on insurance?

We provide independent, expert insurance and risk management advice and consultancy. We help entrepreneurs, investors and others engaged in technology commercialization to mitigate risks inherent in investment in new science or technology.

We understand the pressures you're under, and these risk services are simply part of the way we work:

  • Enterprise Risk Reviews: a free report on mitigating the risk in your business plan - our reports help you become investor-ready and equip you with the know-how to protect your business when it's most vulnerable - during start-up.   from
  • Investor Programs: due diligence to protect your investment in new science or technology enterprises. 

Let us help you identify and manage your risk

More than ever before, it’s incumbent upon the management of modern science and technology firms to view their business risk holistically.  Insurance is an important part of the puzzle, but it's rarely the complete solution.  That's why we encourage our clients to establish a framework of risk management, so as to proactively identify potential threats to their business and take appropriate steps to deal with them. 

We leverage the risk management expertise of our specialist insurance partners to offer...

  • On-site surveys and peril-specific surveys (e.g. Fire or Theft surveys)
  • Environmental surveys - for environmental liability insurance
  • Safety training programs for your staff
  • Business Continuity Planning - helping you to survive an interruption to your operations
  • Supply chain dependency assessment - with advice on specialist insurance coverage
  • Statutory inspection of plant & machinery for regulatory compliance
  • Engineering breakdown risk assessment
