CLAIMS SERVICE

Kadanjoe Asia Pacific and Its clients

A critical part of Kadanjoe "difference" is our claim philosophy, which has remained unchanged since the origin of Kadanjoe in 1992.

The foundation of the Kadanjoe claim philosophy is to be responsive to the Insured at a time of misfortune. A Kadanjoe policy of insurance represents not only a commercial business transaction, but also a significant commitment of trust. This understanding was best stated by the late Hendon Chubb (the founder of our Underwriter friend - Chubb Insurance Group in USA) who said:

" ... while an insurance policy is a legal contract that expresses our minimum responsibility, there are many occasions when equity demands that we recognise a moral obligation beyond the strictly legal terms - and this is always a consideration in our settlements."

The four cornerstones of Kadanjoe's customer-driven approach to claims are:

Empathy
There is much more to settling a loss than reaching a final monetary agreement. There is the human side as well. The aftermath of a loss is often a period of stress and even disorientation. We feel it is a Kadanjoe responsibility to help restore the Insured's peace of mind. Thus, in handling claims, Kadanjoe's claim people treat the Insured the way they would like to be treated themselves if they had a loss. It is this attitude of courtesy, empathy and a conscious sense of equity which guarantees a fair and responsive settlement.

Promptness
When a claim occurs, "time is of the essence". How we execute our claim-servicing responsibilities is of paramount importance. We respond to our Insureds with the timely payment of covered losses. Prompt payments help our Insureds restore lost property and minimise consequential losses. Timely involvement is also vital in investigating and defending claims brought against our Insureds. Accordingly, we have established standards for prompt contact and resolution in direct response to the reporting of claims by our clients.

Fairness
Our role is to help both our clients/policyholders and our selected Underwriters to bear risks for a profit. When a loss occurs, our obligation is to deliver fully on the promise. Many Kadanjoe insurance forms are specially designed to provide broad coverage and to reduce or eliminate standard industry loopholes or conditions. This evenhandedness in our contracts is supported in practice by our claim administration which strives to create and maintain an atmosphere of trust, cooperation and fairness in all our dealings with the Insured and the selected Underwriters.

Expertise
Kadanjoe knows that insurance is not the only solution and does not try to meet all insurance needs. Instead, Kadanjoe concentrates on providing special products and services for selected markets. A key ingredient to this strategy is to provide claim specialists to meet the particular needs of the various - and often demanding - markets in which we concentrate.

OUR METHODOLOGY

We are pleased to present an overview of our proposed Action Plan and Time Table (please see Schedule A below) which would govern our work method for the clients if we are appointed as your Insurance Consultant. On the following pages, we discuss the Action Plan in greater detail.

METHODOLOGY, ACTION PLAN AND TIMETABLE DISCUSSED

Selection of Insurance Consultant/Specialist

♦ To appoint Kadanjoe as your Insurance Consultant/Specialist. Our preferred Underwriters where our Group has underwriting authority/agency include Etiqa Insurance (previously called MNI), MSIG Insurance, Jerneh Insurance Bhd, Allianz Insurance, ACE and others. Of course, we also deal with other underwriters. Although we are not an Insurance Broker, our expertise is at par with International Broking Firm because of our own expertise, technical knowledge and know-how and experience.

Immediate Action

♦ The Kadanjoe team will be introduced to your key financial management and insurance personnel

♦ The introductory meetings will present the opportunity to establish lines of communication for the on-going handling of the Insurance Programme

♦ We will collect relevant data and/or copies of all current insurance policies for immediate review of conditions of coverages, sums insured, limits of liability ratings etc

In our normal role as your appointed Insurance Consultant, we of course do not charge any fee as we obtain remuneration from the Insurers who save from servicing and pass on to us a commission.
