La Playa’s Personal Risk Concierge means:

  3. A discreet and complimentary appraisal* of your property to assess the risks and ensure you have the right cover where you need it
  4. An independent market review - so you don’t have to shop around comparing policies, cover limits, risks covered and smallprint exclusions
  5. Careful monitoring of the insurers’ financial strength, claims and customer service
  6. An independent recommendation of the best policy for you - and why
  7. Specialist policy wordings from underwriters who have demonstrated excellence and deep understanding of your risk exposures. We have analyzed a wide range of policy wordings and have selected only the best for our panel. Our advisors have a deep working knowledge of these policies 
  8. An intelligently designed portfolio of protection across multiple asset classes and territories
  9. Advice on how best to manage your risks - to keep you safe but also to keep insurance costs down
  10. A dedicated advisor so you can speak to the same person each time.
  11. Expert guidance on valuations, security and risk management, and connecting you with specialist advisers and suppliers
  12. Direct phone and email access to your adviser for questions and advice. We aim to pick up calls within 3 rings and to respond to emails within 60 minutes
  13. Policy documents emailed to you - no logins and passwords to remember
  14. An advocate beside you if you make a claim - thinking laterally to mitigate the impact, making useful connections to get you back up and running, and driving through a swift financial settlement

Oh, and...
