Our industrial property insurance cover supports you in the event of major damage
It can happen at any time: a fire breaks out in production facilities or business
premises are flooded following prolonged torrential rain. In such extreme situations
companies need an experienced insurance partner: HDI knows what to do and provides
insurance against these types of risks.
HDI’s property insurance provides cover arising from loss or damage to business property and the resulting business interruption. The territorial scope of cover can be extended worldwide within the framework of our International Insurance Programmes policy, which can include cover for natural disasters. HDI Risk Consulting provides pragmatic solutions for clients to reduce their risks and prevent damage before it occurs.
Our decentralised claims management system enables HDI to ensure that the necessary decisions and actions are taken quickly when damage occurs. Our prompt actions have one key objective to safeguard the production capabilities of the company concerned and to reduce any consequential damage to the business.

Rapid, uncomplicated claims settlement
Claims handlers are based in local HDI offices and supported by claims specialists in HDI Head Office. This ensures that claims adjusters are quickly on site at any location worldwide – irrespective of where the loss has occurred.
