The risks faced by irrigation companies, both large and small, are diverse and potentially complex.
The difference between risk management and insurance broking is the latter will address typically only 25% of all the risk exposures an irrigation scheme faces.
A risk management approach addresses all risks, whether they be insurable or not, and then identifies the most cost effective way to manage those risks. This is where Willis Towers Watson can help.
We are a worldwide leading professional risk management adviser and insurance broker. Willis Towers Watson represents a significant number of Irrigation Schemes, Power Generation companies and Hydro facilities throughout New Zealand.
We advise Boards of Directors and Scheme Managers to achieve superior and cost effective risk mitigation options.
