Covering industry losses

Dear Editor

Just a quick note to congratulate you on an excellent publication. However it would be good to see more information on losses sustained by the industry. Being an insurer who covers various power authorities in Australia, New Zealand and PNG for breakdown, explosion and fire losses, it would help us to understand the industry better and as a result give a better service to clients.

Some people may think the insurance companies just take the premiums and forget about the clients for the rest of the year. We have an on going relationship with clients throughout the term of cover involving risk management/loss control techniques etc. Any help we can get in providing these services would be much appreciated.

Keep up the good work.
