The Scheme provides discretionary protection for member's property assets, stock, plant and machinery, computers and electronic equipment. Cover has been specifically tailored to protect the risks of local government with an understanding of the financial implications of high deductibles, removal of standard sub-limits and increased flexibility in managing income loss arising from disruption caused to your property from an event covered under the protection wording (pdf).
The shared approach to risk and the strong financial position of the scheme allows LGIS Property to provide local governments with a stable platform to manage their property risk and limit their exposure to changing appetite of the traditional insurance markets.
