COVER Digital Magazine – October 2018

In this Edition of COVER we put the spotlight on the Marine Insurance industry. Captain Andrew Walker, Regional Marine Loss Control Manager: Africa & Middle East, AIG says “Marine insurance must reflect the complexities and reach of global trade in order to provide the solutions that clients need.”

We asked the question what is included in Marine Insurance? The question can be answered with another question: How long is a string? In the Marine feature we bring you interesting comments from various insurers on the subject of Marine Insurance.

COVER recently had the pleasure of spending some time with Sharon Patterson, CEO of Infiniti Insurance, baking muffins at Perpetua House, an Intermediate and Senior Phase school for learners with special educational needs, supported by Infiniti.
