Claims management specialist Duke Risk Consulting launches

A new specialist insurance advice company, Duke Risk Consulting, which specialises in claims management, cyber risk analysis and insurance, has been launched.

The company says that it has been created to meet the growing demand for genuinely independent insurance knowledge, skill and expertise to buyers of commercial insurance.

Duke Risk Consulting’s team has considerable experience in the management of insurance claims across multiple insurance classes. It works with clients to analyse policy cover and assess claim merits under the policy, ensure satisfaction of the policy notification provisions, and prepare claims submissions to insurers.

It says that the subsequent management of the claim process ensures that claims are managed to the client’s advantage and progressed efficiently. Where appropriate, Duke also works with specialist insurance lawyers in pursuit of recovery under client’s policies. It says that this approach combines practical market experience with legal expertise to maintain efficiencies within the process.

Andrew Ducat, founder and CEO of Duke Risk Consulting said: “We are seeing significant changes in the insurance landscape and there is a need to provide more progressive and dynamic services that are not dependent on the sale of insurance products.

“Duke is not an insurance broker or insurer. Our raison d’etre is to empower clients to make informed product value decisions.

“Commercial insurance transactions are complex, we give clients the tools and expertise to execute these transactions. This gives clients a strategic advantage and helps them redress the imbalance that exists between buyers and sellers of insurance,” he added.
