Gallagher Risk Insights — Edition 20

Welcome to the latest issue of our newsletter. As we head into winter, businesses continue to face challenges from supply chain issues, inclement weather and the ongoing presence of COVID-19.

In this edition of our newsletter, we explore these issues and how you can protect your business and manage the risks from these threats. Visit our Gallagher News and Insights page for more updates and articles.

How the insurance sector can help supply chain risks?

One of the latest risks facing UK businesses are supply chain issues. Broken links in the supply chain can lead to severe disruption and is a risk generally only partially protected by traditional insurance products. The impact of supply chain disruption can cause much more than a temporary financial loss to a business. If an organisation cannot maintain its supply of raw materials or critical component parts, in the wake of a disruptive event it could have a significant and long-term impact on revenues, profits, market position, reputation, or a reduction in investor confidence. In this article, we explore the issues businesses are currently experiencing and what they can do to manage the problems arising from them. Read more.
