How can you help make sure your underwriting is as accurate as possible? If you’re not using digital pre-risk surveys, it’s time to take the plunge.

Pre-risk surveys can help underwriters and brokers gather information about a risk that might otherwise go unnoticed and lead to riskier policy decisions. A digital pre-risk survey can provide you with insights that allow you to assess what types of policies would be suitable for your customer based on their needs and financial situation.

  1. Why would you need to take a pre-risk survey?

A pre-risk survey is necessary when a property or a business needs to identify any possible hazards that may adversely impact the quality of the risk. A pre-risk survey can also be used to determine the effectiveness of the control measures that are currently stabilising those hazards.

  1. What are the benefits of taking a pre-risk survey in insurance?

When pre-risk surveys are taking place, assessors provide documentation of the risk and exposure to different hazards and perform a risk analysis that underwriters and brokers can understand the impact and consequences of the risk.

Through pre-risk surveys, sufficient information can be sent directly to allow underwriters and brokers to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the control measures already in place.

  1. How long does it take to complete the process, and what is involved?

Whether you decide to conduct your pre-risk survey physically or virtually, the process is very efficient. The inspector primarily uses a video collaboration tool to capture any possible hazards. Once risks have been captured and analysed, information can be passed on to underwriters or brokers to decide on insurance policies.
