Farming and Agriculture
The farming and agriculture industry makes up a significant proportion of Australia’s economy providing food and produce for both the domestic and export markets. Because of climate change, increase in fires, floods or other disasters, insurers often impose rapidly rising premiums which can remain high for many years. Since 2009, many farms have seen a rapid rise in insurance premiums due to the increased numbers of fires, disasters and major losses on farms. Helping agribusiness clients manage this, in the good and the hard times, has become a big part of the Ausure business.
Each farm or agribusiness is a little different, and getting the best premiums and cover often relies on properly representing the business to insurers. We show them the breadth of operations, the technology improvements, the tradedealings, and the quality controls used by good farmers to offset some of the inevitable risks. Our Ausure Advisers understand the agriculture and farming industry well, living and working in the major farming areas of Australia and they take pride in helping farms manage risk and cost at the same time.
