Ecclesiastical joins forces with counter terrorism start-up

23 July 2021

A new partnership between Ecclesiastical and specialist risk management start-up, Key Risk Ltd, has been formed to provide brokers with expert counter terrorism advice.

From June 2021, brokers selecting a policy from Ecclesiastical insurance will be able to offer customers a discounted annual crisis management training and assessment license as a result of the new collaboration.

Key Risk Ltd is a specialist risk management company formed by experts with experience of working in the armed forces and emergency services. They specialise in providing counter terrorism risk assessments, training, ‘real life’ exercises and assurance solutions for policyholders.

The partnership builds on Ecclesiastical’s status as risk experts within the insurance industry and adds to its already extensive Enterprise Risk Management offering to customers.

Jo Whyman, Risk Management Director at Ecclesiastical explained: “We know that our customers face a wide range of challenges, and with the risk landscape always changing it is important that we stay ahead of the curve to help them manage that risk.

“This new partnership with Key Risk Ltd will provide our policyholders with top quality advice and support – helping them to meet their duty of care and compliance requirements, reducing the risk to people, properties and their business operations.”

Alex Jones, Relationship Manager for Key Risk said: “We are delighted to be supporting Ecclesiastical customers through our high quality, customer led, risk solutions.

“As well as reducing the negative consequences of disruptive events, we focus on exploring value opportunities that can be generated from effective risk management. We appreciate Ecclesiastical are a proactive risk carrier who are continually horizon scanning to identify emerging risks.

“They have been extremely helpful to us in developing our business model and we look forward to progressing a long-term relationship”.
