  • Chadwicks Risk & Insurance Objectives


Our insurance company's objective is to provide unique, cost effective risk solutions. While this often will involve insurance, we adopt a pragmatic and holistic risk management approach, which ensures that all risks are identified, minimised and, when necessary, transferred via the insurance mechanism. What differentiates our offering from other brokers is our total risk approach. We don't simply insure natural perils e.g. Fire, Storm and other conventional risks, but all areas affecting your business, featuring:            


        • Risk Management
        • Risk Identification
        • Risk Analysis
        • Risk Profiling


  •  Licensed by the Financial Services Board


The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 2002 compels insurance brokers offering short term insurance advice to be licensed to give such advice. Chadwicks is an “Authorised Financial Service Provider” and licensed with the Financial Services Board under licence number "38314".


  •  Dynamic Insurance Brokers


Our dynamic and professional team has a wide range of expertise and specialised industry knowledge, which ensures you are provided with the best possible insurance product at the best price. Chadwicks Risk & Insurance is large enough to provide a professional infrastructure and small enough to provide quality personalised service. Chadwicks has the experience and market exposure to handle any risk via local, Lloyds of London and international markets.


Chadwicks has evolved into one of South Africa’s most comprehensive insurance broking houses, providing risk and insurance solutions to a wide diversity of clients. Regardless of the risks you face, we will take the time to understand the risks that are unique to your company as well as to your sector. We constantly strive to exceed your service expectations and are proud to state that our client retention rate is in the order of 95%.


Changes in technology have dramatically altered the way we do business; we view these developments as an opportunity to serve you better! We understand that in order to succeed in business we must be able to respond promptly and professionally to your enquiries, be it email, phone, fax or in person. Most importantly, each of our customers are assigned a licensed, professional advisor, in order to ensure our high level of service is maintained.


In short, our trademark: “Best Advice, Best Practice & Best Service” embodies what Chadwicks Risk & Short Term Insurance Brokerage Company in South Africa is all about.

Rather let your insurers take whatever action they deem fit – this is after all why you pay them insurance premiums
