Welcome to BBi Berns Brett -
Commercial Insurance Brokers
and Risk Managers

Understanding risk can be the essence of survival. Risks can either be ignored, eliminated, managed or transferred (insurance). The BBi Group get involved in all aspects of risk control to make sure their clients are aware of the importance of understanding the risks they run and the implications of ignoring these risks. If it is possible to eliminate risk we can also assist.

Commercial insurance and the transfer of risk is just part of the control process and we believe that risk management is by far the most important way an organisation can protect itself from the consequences of risk exposure. If insurance leads to complacency this can, in fact, increase commercial risk considerably.

We aim to act as our client's insurance department for companies where it is uneconomic to employ their own commercial insurance and risk control professionals. We also assist in house insurance departments that require our specialist services.

The BBi Group support professional qualifications and insist that their staff are properly qualified to carry out the tasks required of them at the highest level. We do not restrict our services to mere insurance placing and are able to match and exceed the facilities offered by some of the largest of broker organisations. We would welcome the opportunity to audit your commercial insurance arrangements and indeed review your health and safety, disaster recovery, human resources and training needs independently of reviewing your insurances.
