Hart Special Risks
Based in Genova, Italy, Hart Special Risks provides expert insurance advice to the Football Industry. Born in 1958, HSR founder Darrell Hart has nearly 25 years experience in Insurance. A Lloyd’s Correspondent since 1994 Darrell has been working extensively in the UK, discovering new horizons in the area of insurances for the Sports sector, for instance, in which he has been working for the last few years, achieving good results and professional recognition. This is due in no small part to the ability of HSR to provide innovative products and to keep abreast of the latest developments.
HSR’s commitment is to provide added value to customers, by providing detailed claims analysis and risk management services in a number of key areas critical to the Sports Industry, utilising a long term approach to business and offering recommendations that aid in controlling premiums and reducing risk. HSR’s expertise and focused approach permit them to provide terms and conditions which address the insurance needs for these types of risk.
HSR has developed personal accident products designed to cover injuries which occur in Sport. Individuals, teams, leagues and federations can all obtain some form of personal accident cover. This helps to minimise potential loss of earnings and expenses for these groups. HSR has policy wordings and coverages that are specially designed to cover individuals or groups participating in activities ranging from Motor Sport to Skiing and of course Football.
Liability Insurance can be a difficult class of business to place. This is especially true when evaluating risks in the sports, leisure and entertainment industries. While events, teams, leisure parks and entertainers strive to attract and excite crowds, the risks they assume become greater. As an underwriting agent, HSR has a team whose expertise allows them to be a market leader and set terms and conditions for coverage. They design tailor-made policy wordings, coverage, high levels of indemnity and competitive pricing.
HSR have programmes which specifically address the needs of: Players, Clubs, Licensed Agents, Football Federations, Sports Industries and Event Organisers.
