PROPERTY INSURANCE

(1) Property All Risks Insurance

This policy provides all risk coverage to property whilst situated at the described premises against loss and/or damage due to any accident or misfortune other than those specifically excluded under the Policy.

ASNIC’s Property All Risks Insurance cover is based on Industrial and Commercial Property Insurance Policy Wording (Market 7 or LM7 Wording).

When compared to conventional Fire Policy, the Property All Risks Policy covers accidental damage to insured property in addition to the Fire & Allied Perils and Burglary.

(2) Fire and Allied Perils Insurance

This form of insurance designed to cover insured properties whilst at specified locations and is essential for all types of properties whether personal or commercial.

All moveable/immoveable properties, which are broadly categorized as follows whilst at specified locations, can be covered under the above Policy:

- Buildings
- Plant & Machinery, Equipments & Accessories
- Stock in trade
- Other Contents such as Furniture, Fixtures, Fittings, Office Equipments

There are two options of cover available under this category to insure property.

1. The basic cover under Fire Policy is for loss or damage to property due to Fire and Lightning only.

2. The second option is to cover loss &/or damage to property due to Fire, Lightning plus a host of Allied Perils such as :

  • Storm, Tempest and Flood
  • Bursting of Water Tanks, Apparatus or Pipes

(3) Burglary Insurance

This policy covers loss or damage to property due to theft following forcible entry into or exit from the premises.

The cover for Burglary is availed in conjunction with the Fire and Allied Perils Insurance in either combined or separate contracts. The later case requires that a Fire insurance policy is in force.

(4) Business Interruption Insurance

A fire or an insured peril might do very little material damage to the buildings or the contents, yet the interruption of business might be very serious.

Consequential Loss Policy indemnifies the insured for Loss of Net Profit, Standing Charges and increase in Cost of Working Expenses resulting from an accident indemnifiable under the underlying Fire & Allied Perils or Property All Risks Insurance Policy.

It is important to select the Indemnity Period (for a period of 3 / 6 / 12 months or more) during which the business can be restored to its pre-loss position following a loss.

For Business Interruption cover to operate, it is compulsory that there be in place a Property All Risks or Fire Insurance Policy.

MOTOR INSURANCE

Motor Insurance deals with the insurance of road vehicles. Motor Insurance has become an important aspect of everyday life. In today's human activities there is tremendous risk to people and property. With the uncertainty in individual driving styles, habits and carelessness, traffic accidents do happen without any warning inspite of all the precautions taken by the drivers. Insuring your vehicle could ease the tension of bearing the consequences of any traffic accident. These considerations have urged legislators to enforce Motor Insurance to be mandatory. According to United Arab Emirates Federal Law No. (21) of 1995, Motor Insurance against Third Party Liability is compulsory for obtaining Motor Vehicle Registration.

Our Motor policy satisfies the legal requirement for motor insurance in the U.A.E.

There are basically two types of covers available under Al Sagr National Insurance Company's Motor Insurance:

1. Loss, Damage and Third Party (Comprehensive).

- Own damage to the vehicle upto the declared value, less deduction in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section (1) of the policy.

- Death and/or Bodily injury to any third party is unlimited (but sum awarded by court whatever it may be).

- Damage to Third Party Property upto the agreed amount.

2. Third Party Liability (TPL)

- Death and/or Bodily injury to any third party is unlimited (but sum awarded by court whatever it may be).

- Damage to Third Party Property upto the agreed amount.

Geographical Area for insurance cover is United Arab Emirates

Upon the request of the Insured, the company, by way of additional endorsement attached to the policy and within the limits of its provisions and conditions, may extend the Geographical Area to include other countries, and/or provide Personal Accident cover for the insured and his family/employees working for the insured against accident that may occur to any one of them while using/in the motor vehicle.

LIFE INSURANCE

Life insurance is an essential part of financial planning. One reason most people buy life insurance is to replace income that would be lost with the death of a wage earner. The cash provided by life insurance also can help ensure that your dependents are not burdened with significant debt when you die. Life insurance proceeds could mean your dependents will not have to sell assets to pay outstanding bills, or any other obligation a family might have to deal with. An important feature of life insurance is that no income tax is payable on proceeds paid to beneficiaries.

How to determine the amount of life insurance you may need.

Before buying life insurance, you should assemble personal financial information and review your family's needs. There are a number of factors to consider when determining how much protection you should have. These include:

  • Any immediate needs at the time of death, such as final illness expenses, burial costs, and estate taxes;
  • Funds for a readjustment period, to finance a move or to provide time for family members to find a job;
  • Ongoing financial needs, such as monthly bills and expenses, day-care costs, college tuition or retirement.

Although there is no substitute for a careful evaluation of the amount of coverage needed to meet your needs, one rule of thumb used is buy life insurance that is equal to five to ten times annual gross income.

Buying life insurance is not like any other purchase you will make. When you pay your premiums, you're buying the future financial security of your family that only life insurance can provide. Among its many uses, life insurance helps ensure that, when you are no longer around, your dependents will have the financial resources needed to protect their home and the income needed to run a household.

Different coverages are available ranging from a restricted cover of Death only, to a comprehensive cover covering Death, Permanent Disablements and Temporary Total Disablements. In addition to that that the cover can also be extended to include Medical Expenses due to accident and Expenses of Repatriation of mortal remains following accidental death for a specified limit.

This policy is basically designed to offer compensation to the insured person who dies or sustains bodily injury solely as a result of an accident which is external, violent and visible. Hence death or injury due to any illness or disease is not covered by the policy.

(5) Fidelity Guarantee Insurance

The desire for wealth can change the attitude of human beings. It induces malicious intention in any person and it cannot be judged by their behavior.

When huge sums of money are being handled by employees, there is always a risk of it being misappropriated or embezzled. Business can suffer huge losses by this kind of infidelity risks

The policy covers the employer in respect of any direct financial loss sustained as a result of fraud and dishonesty of his employees who are named in the Policy and committed by them in the course of their employment for their financial gain.

The Fidelity Guarantee Policy is recommended not only in respect of employees dealing with Cash/Accounts such as Finance Managers, Cashiers, Accountants, etc. but also those who are responsible for stocks such as Salesmen, Storekeepers, etc.

Should your business or personal requirements need other insurance coverages, we are always open to offer appropriate tailor-made products to you.

(6) Credit Insurance

If the customer to whom goods are supplied on credit fails to discharge their debt, many businesses may end up in bankruptcy. The ideal solution for such an eventuality is to go for credit insurance whereby the insurance company undertakes to pay the creditor the amount of the outstanding debt in case of the failure of the debtor to repay the debts.
