Since our formation we have grown to become one of Thailand’s largest and most respected risk advisors offering a full risk management service from a committed and dedicated group of professionals.
In 1999, the ownership of our company changed when the local management acquired a controlling interest. Little else changed. Our company continued with the same management and staff, and the same over-riding commitment to exceed our clients’ expectations.
Trafalgar International is an independent company. While we have a professional association with a number of major international risk advisors, we prefer to retain the ability, where necessary, to select the best international partner to serve the specific interests of our various clients.
Trafalgar International is also an Assurex Global shareholder, an exclusive Partnership of the world’s premier independent insurance agents and brokers, the World’s 4th largest insurance broking group.
What we do
Within those areas where we wish to transact business, we adopt a team approach to client servicing in order that appropriate resources are always available. However, an account director is responsible for the risk solutions we recommend and is personally involved in placement, claims and ongoing service. We do not allow our team approach to dilute the personal contact that is so important with our clients.
While this will often involve insurance, we adopt a pragmatic risk management approach. This ensures that all risks are identified, minimised and when necessary transferred. We deal with total risk, not simply the physical risks of fire or flood, but such areas as:
- Contractual liabilities
- Credit risks
- Continuity of supplies
- Disaster recovery
- Professional and directors liabilities
- Balance sheet enhancement
To make appropriate recommendations we need to obtain an intimate knowledge of our clients business. While we respect your time constraints, we insist on sufficient information to ensure that our advice will protect your assets, your liabilities and your ongoing future profitability. We want you as a client for a long time!
