Our Specialty Lines:
Marine Insurance is the cornerstone of Gulf Ocean. Our building blocks are Hull & Machinery and Protection & Indemnity insurances which traditionally have been our biggest lines of business since our inception back in 2002. Since then, our depth and reach in the marine insurance market has allowed us to develop in house expertise to serve various stakeholders in a marine voyage. Regardless of which aspect of a sea adventure you are involved with, we at Gulf Ocean can assist you with the right insurance covers in terms of scope, security and price.
Over the years we have also catered to non-marine general insurance requirements for our clients. We are able to assist with insurance coverages for UAE based clients and have enjoyed good success in this area. We have built up a team of dedicated professionals who are well tuned to the market needs and responding swiftly to the same. Whilst there are a wide variety of non-marine lines of insurance that we could assist with, the three broad categories are:
- - Securing Assets
- - Protection against liabilities
- - Employee Benefits
With over 400 plus years of combined insurance experience within our team, we certainly have come across a variety of claims, unique risks and insurance cycles. Whilst we certainly believe that there is still a lot left to learn, we most certainly are able to deliver highly professional services for your insurance requirements. There are four main pillars whereby our expertise translates to superior returns for our clients.
