CKA’s points of difference in the Financial Lines sector can be summarised as follows;

Unrivalled technical and policy coverage focus. Willis CKA have agreed endorsements with most insurers that significantly broaden then coverage our clients receive
We understand financial reports, capital raising documentation, continuous disclosure requirements etc. All of this ensures that we talk the same language as our clients chief financial advisors
We closely follow the company announcements and financial performance of our clients to ensure underwriters are always kept fully informed.
Our understanding of the “real” corporate risks our clients face helps us present our clients in the best possible light to the insurance market and allows Willis CKA to negotiate premium terms unmatched by most brokers.
