Worrying trend for commercial property insurance in Australia

By Andrew Saville on

Underinsurance is alive and well in Australia. A recent report from Swiss Re has highlighted major concerns surrounding large gaps in property insurance for Commercial and SME businesses in Australia.

Did you know that the annual uninsured loss for businesses in Australia is nearly an astounding $5 billion? And that 1 in 8 businesses do not have any insurance cover at all?

Swiss Re's report that focuses on the Australian Commercial Insurance Market has unearthed a worrying trend, finding that commercial properties in Australia are often vastly underinsured below the amount it would cost to fully reinstate a property in a total loss.

With the inherent environmental risks due to Australia’s potentially catastrophic weather, partnered with a more litigious society, it has never been more important to protect your business with an appropriate level of insurance that gives greater certainty to your future.
