We can all agree that the hottest new game on the planet is Pokemon Go!
Recently we had arranged Event Insurance for a client who was meeting with over 1000 likeminded gamers and yes they were playing Pokemon Go. We at MBJ Insurance Solutions love a challenge and approached the Insurance market. What we found was interesting –
Thanks to many news outlets letting the world know that this is an amazing game, with many positives such as, getting kids outside, bringing people together to exercise/play and interact. Wow, even grown men in suits in the city are actively playing this game in their lunch break and not to mention $1.6 M a day for Nintendo.
Like anything that is good, can become bad. Many issues have begun from playing this game whilst on the move. For example – two people had fallen off cliffs, there have been many car accidents, large groups of people attending one place at one time, which has caused havoc with traffic, residences and businesses. The list could go on and on.
In the future, if you organise an event with a large number of attendees, it is very important for you to obtain a Public Liability Insurance policy. It may seem innocent organising such an event, but if anyone was to get hurt or damage any property, you could be left liable.
Our client completed a proposal form and I obtained a number of quotes from insurers I knew could assist. The client placed cover and the event was successful.
If you are considering a one-day event for – Fundraising, Pokemon Go or a Market stall. Speak with us today so we can work out the best insurance options for you.
Have you considered the other option? The what if? - We as Australians pride ourselves with our assets and work damn hard to acquire them. However we are also well known to put our head in the sand and roll things over like our -Mortgages and General insurances. With such shows as the nightly news and A current affair constantly trying to remind us that we can save money here or there in these areas? But I like many, at the time of watching such shows and thinking I need to do something about that and once the program finishes it falls to the waist side.
As there are so many options available it can seem over whelming. Do it yourself online, convenient yes, but are you completely sure of what you are purchasing? If you purchase a policy that can cost very little at the beginning (you get what you paid for) I guess you will find out when things happen and a claim needs to be lodged. Are you happy with this option to protect that business you have given your all too? Or that brand new car that cost an arm and a leg but could cost you more in a claim because you did not read the fine print well and didn’t opt in for a hire car after the accident occurred. Sometimes it’s the little things that can cost us in time and money.
Let’s put it another way if you are unwell and yes we are all guilty of DR Google but when we have had enough we go and see a medical doctor to get the correct diagnosis. Well it is the same for the Insurances would you not want to make sure that the policy you have purchased or have had for years is covering you and your assets well in the event of a claim.
I have had a new client just recently mention that she did not even know that Insurances brokers existed.
This is the way I like to explain what exactly it is that we do and have to offer - As your broker, we work for you - arranging, placing and managing all of your insurance requirements. We approach the market to find you the right cover, at the right price - saving you valuable time and money.

I had the pleasure of seeing keynote speaker John Maher at our recent Conference. The moment he began his presentation he had my full attention. Everyone in the room was moved by your story John and it was really hard to hold back the tears.
You never know what’s around the corner
Life was perfect for John, Ange and their four daughters until John was seriously injured in a car crash at age 42. A successful Life Insurance Manager, John was soon told by doctors that he would never work again. His journey will shock and enlighten you.
Life wasn’t finished with John and his family.
Just 2 years after John’s car crash, worse was to come. On a beautiful Saturday morning after taking her best friend to work, Carmen (18) the youngest of their four daughters, was killed in a car crash.
The doctors were wrong about John, because in Carmen’s death, John found the strength to tell his story, and he is an inspirational International Keynote Speaker. He will inspire you, he will challenge you, and give you hope.

An insurance broker can save you time, money and worry. Just like an accountant or lawyer who provides you with professional advice, based on years of training and experience, a qualified broker can do the same with your insurance.
When arranging insurance, many people take shortcuts without seeking proper advice, understanding the fine print or considering whether they are getting value for money. Often they are disappointed when their insurance doesn't come to the rescue.
Whether it's business or personal insurance, brokers provide advice and assistance to make sure you are properly protected.
Using an insurance broker doesn't necessarily cost more. Often it costs less because brokers have in depth knowledge of the insurance market and the ability to negotiate on your behalf. A broker will also explain your policy and any special situations you need to watch out for. Furthermore, a broker is obliged to advise you of fees charged for services provided to you.
You will benefit most by developing a close business relationship where the broker understands your future plans, the associated risks and how you like to do business.
An insurance broker's foremost duty is to his or her client. An insurance broker works for you, not for the insurance companies.

Key Business person and succession insurance are an integral part of succession planning that allows for the efficient and fair realisation of equity between owners of a business, if one business owner dies or needs to leave the business due to illness or disablement.
Any business succession plan should facilitate: the transfer of equity between the remaining business owners, certainty that beneficiaries receive their full entitlement for the value of the equity in the business, and protection of the value of the business if one owner dies or suffers illness or disablement
Business succession insurance is designed to provide the necessary funding to achieve these goals. Insurance can be a tricky area with lots of options to consider, so contact us today to arrange an advisor to protect you and your family.
Professional indemnity insurance protects a business and its employees when they are sued for an act, error or omission in relation to the provision of professional services. Complicated legal issues relating to professional indemnity can result in the professional incurring significant legal costs in protecting their business and their professional reputation. A Professional Indemnity Insurance policy provides protection for the professional against those costs and the resultant impact on their business and their livelihood.
