HDFC ERGO lead insurer for Formula 1

HDFC ERGO, one of the leading private sector non-life insurance companies in India, is the lead insurer for the prestigious Formula 1 Race, which is being organized for the first time in India at New Delhi on Sunday, October 30, 2011.

HDFC ERGO, in collaboration with Ace Insurance Brokers, the risk management and insurance intermediary company will provide an insurance cover of US $15million.

The Insurance Cover would protect the Formula 1 Grand Prix event against adverse weather, non-appearance of several teams, riots, strikes and civil commotion leading to cancellation of the event, its postponement or relocation.

Mr. Anuj Tyagi, Head - Corporate and Rural & Agri Business, HDFC ERGO General Insurance, speaking on the occasion said, “Underwriting a prestigious event like Formula 1 Race is unique and a momentous occasion for us, as it once again demonstrates our capability to insure large-size, multifaceted projects. Insuring such a high-profile event in a country like India is a great learning experience.”
An adverse incident can have the potential to ruin a planned event by forcing the event to be canceled, postponed or abandoned and when an event cannot take place as planned, the organizers often have to write off costs incurred up to the point of cancellation. These expenses include deposits, advertising and printing costs, booking fees etc. “A policy like Event Cancellation Insurance Policy is thus a savior for the organizers because it pays any irrecoverable cost or expense which have been or will be incurred in connection with the event, following a cancellation, interruption, postponement or relocation due to any of the insured perils,” said Mr. Anil Arora, Director, Ace Insurance Brokers.

Mr. Tyagi further added " an experienced team of Underwriters and actuaries at HDFC ERGO has been able to evaluate the risks involved in event such large as Formula 1 and design insurance solution to suit the needs of insured.
These types of policies are fully re-insured with international re-insurers.
