RiskPoint has its roots back to 1917 when the insurance agency Hansen & Klein was founded in Copenhagen. Originally employed Hansen & Klein in international reinsurance as agents of first-class insurance companies from Scandinavia, the UK, Continental Europe and the United States. Later Japan’s three largest insurance companies came into the portfolio.
In 2007 RiskPoint became a new spearhead of the international insurance market. We managed to bring together the industry’s most competent senior underwriters for an exquisite professional clientele. RiskPoint was launched as a new name, and four new partners established RiskPoint jointly as exclusive underwriting agency with an international profile. Today RiskPoint have offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki and Frankfurt.
The concept of an underwriter comes from the historical insurer Lloyds of London, which offered insurance for ocean-going ships. Lloyds took responsibility for the risks inherent in ocean navigation in exchange for a set premiums paid by the ship’s owner and sometimes a share in the profits of the voyage. Lloyds of London’s trusted employees had the task of identifying and qualifying exposures and facilitate loss control and risk management.
They had to determine insurance needs and produce the most accurate insurance premium relative to the risk. This work was been done by a so-called underwriter.
At RiskPoint we have from the beginning focused on recruiting market skilled underwriters. Our underwriters are the core of our business, and they have direct contact with our customers.
