Having an insurance programme that identifies, manages, and transfers risk can enhance financial and operational resilience and help maintain business viability across the entire mining lifecycle.

The global mining industry faces many challenges: softer commodity prices, cost-management challenges, reduced access to finance, and increasing expectations around social, economic, and environmental engagement with host communities and regulators. Meanwhile, investors demand operational rigor and capital discipline to ensure appropriate returns from capital-intensive assets and projects.

The result of Marsh’s mining industry expertise: robust, cost-effective risk management and risk transfer programmes that enhance the resilience of your business.
