Claims Management Service
Play Fair, Pay Early
The Claims team at Berkley Insurance Australia is proud of their claims philosophy and ensures in all cases that it is applied to our claims service offering. When a Berkley Insurance Australia policy responds to a claim we understand that our brokers and clients expect to be treated as individuals by an insurer who understands the unique risk exposures that affect their business.
Berkley Insurance Australia recognises that its customers expect and deserve an experienced claims management service. The hand-picked, highly trained and experienced claims management professionals centrally located in Sydney are proactive in recognising and paying claims that arise under any policy of insurance written by our specialist and professional team of underwriters.

The insurance business is an extremely competitive industry.
