Inoni announce Kerry London as new partner

Posted by Mark Robinson on July 25, 2017

Inoni have launched a new partnership with independent insurance broker Kerry London, helping to make Business Continuity more accessible to small and medium sized manufacturers.

The Lloyds of London Registered Broker has provided bespoke insurance solutions to the manufacturing industry for over 30 years and will help clients incorporate Business Continuity Planning as an integral part of their risk management strategies.

Taking steps to ensure resilience against disruptive events is key for manufacturing businesses across all subsectors. With Kerry London's extensive knowledge of the Business Interruption insurance market, paired with Inoni's expertise in Business Continuity Planning and resilience, the new partnership is set to add significant value to the services it provides to the manufacturing industry.

In a unique offering, Kerry London will now provide a free health check of any company’s business continuity strategies and a significant contribution towards the cost of inception and development of Business Continuity Plans undertaken by its current or new policyholders.

With offices in Watford, Isleworth and the City of London, Kerry London is part of Kelliher Insurance Group, a Top 50 broker, and has significant industry presence. It said it was delighted to have selected Inoni as its new business continuity partner.

Dean Calaz, Managing Director of the Corporate, Commercial and Private Clients Division at Kerry London Ltd, said:

“Kerry London is committed to supporting the practice and discipline of Business Continuity alongside Business Interruption insurance to create a robust risk programme for any manufacturer – be it in furniture, metals, chemicals, machinery or any other sector.

“Whilst we can insure against unforeseen business interruption issues, such as weather, fire and so on, a Business Continuity Plan can help to anticipate potential risks and associated impacts. Our partners at Inoni can support our clients in identifying these issues and planning their mitigation.

“This new partnership will provide a robust report and set of recommendations to help our clients become resilient against unforeseen events and able to continue with their business should disaster strike.

“It’s a unique proposition for an intermediary to be financially supporting Business Continuity Planning and we’re delighted to be working with Inoni in this way, as well as with the offer of a free health check.

“We are helping UK manufacturers to have the ability to ensure the longevity and continuity of their business should the unforeseen happen, whether it’s insurable or not.

“Many risks are covered by Business Interruption insurance but others – such as loss of a key individual at a location, exit of executives, reputational damage – are not. So what steps do you take to repair the damage? Business Continuity Planning can aid you in identifying what direction you should take.”

Inoni provides a suite of customisable business continuity, risk assessment and organisational resilience software applications that are highly adaptive, empowering its clients’ teams to measure resilience, manage continuity and ultimately reduce the risks they face.

John Robinson from Inoni said: “This is an exciting opportunity to work with a significant broker in the manufacturing sector and we are proud to be supporting Kerry London.

“Business Continuity Planning is a vital part of ensuring resilience against unforeseen events. Coupled with business insurance, companies should have constantly evolving plans to match the frequent changes in trading conditions at home and, if relevant, overseas.”
