Build Business Resilience with the Help of an Insurance Broker

The 2023 Global Risks Report by the World Economic Forum highlights four key risk themes for business this year: macroeconomics, digitalization, climate and sustainability, and human capital.

Understanding current and emerging risks can help businesses plan risk management strategies and plans, with insurance being one way to transfer or reduce risk.

Business insurance can protect a business from financial risks caused by loss, property damage or disruption of other assets. Identifying the right insurance coverage for a business requires consulting a risk advisor from an insurance broker who can represent clients and help get the best cost benefits and coverage for their business risk profile.

Risk management involves four main elements: identifying risks, analyzing the impact of risks, determining mitigation strategies, and monitoring risk outcomes.

Identifying risk is the first step in determining all risks that affect business objectives, including production, marketing, financial, asset damage and other risks.

Analyzing risks allows companies to understand which risks are important to manage actively, determine priority risk management, and focus on risks with the most significant impact.

Mitigation strategies include accepting, avoiding, reducing or transferring risks. Accepting the risk is usually done when the impact of the risk is insignificant while avoiding the risk means doing everything to prevent the risk from affecting the company.

Reducing or minimizing risk means taking steps to minimize losses from potential risks, whereas transferring risk means transferring the risk to another party that can manage it better, such as an insurance company.

Insurance coverage and needs differ depending on the industry’s risk profile, and partnering with the right insurance broker can help businesses obtain relevant insurance benefits.

Insurance brokers play an important role in protecting the interests of society at large. The government closely monitors them to ensure they provide guarantees and protection to insurance users in Indonesia.

Managing business risk in a systematic, iterative and collaboratively, and leveraging knowledge and input from stakeholders is critical to successful risk management.

PT Asuransi Astra Buana (Asuransi Astra) reported that complaints during the 2023 Lebaran homecoming period had decreased by around 10 percent.
