This partnership the underwriting firm said has become necessary to deepen penetration, particularly in the different compulsory insurances.

This was disclosed by the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Jide Orimolade during a courtesy visit by the Association to the Company in Lagos. He appealed to the facilities managers to support the company and the insurance industry in creating more awareness for Public Buildings Insurance and Builders and Occupiers Liability Insurance which have been made compulsory by law.

He said what is paramount about facilities management in corporate organizations is “the safety and security of people and assets as well as business continuity in event of fire outbreak and other risks”.

He described Law Union & Rock Insurance as a solid and consistent organization that has been in the market for 63-years.He encouraged all to embrace insurance saying no amount of premium is too high since insurance aims at providing peace of mind when an unpredictable incident happens.

Also, speaking, the President of International Facilities Managers Association (IFMA), Tunji Okesola commended Law Union and Rock Insurance on their achievements so far and assured them of their full partnership and support. The IFMA members who were also on a facility tour of Law Union & Rock Insurance premises were conducted round by GbengaObadua, the CEO of Lavender Property Company Limited.
