PROFESSIONAL SPORTS

Professional sports have become very big business nowadays with substantial revenues generated from television rights, merchandising and gate receipts. The cost of enticing the best sports professionals has increased dramatically. The salary packages required to maintain the top performers are often the largest expense a team faces. Each player represents a substantial investment: his or her unavailability, temporary or long–term, a commensurately grave financial loss.

It is imperative, therefore, to protect these players, as an injury can turn a key asset into a very expensive spectator.

The Accident & Health team specializes in designing and placing policies for top sports clubs, including leading soccer, basketball, golf, rugby, cycling, volleyball and motor–racing teams. The risk transfer through insurance is mainly provided to Sporting National Federations (national squads), leading sports teams, individual players, sponsors and third party investors.
