About the selected product
As Asia’s leading insurance broker, we have many clients in similar businesses and situations with similar risks and needs. For these groups, we select products (Selected Product) which combine good pricing and quality cover from reputable insurers. Where we believe it suits the general risks and needs of a particular group, we will only recommend a Selected Product (rather than alternative insurance products).


Consider whether the Selected Product is suitable for you
You should only apply for an insurance policy if you decide that it is suitable for your risks and needs.  You may wish to seek advice from a professional adviser before making a commitment to purchase the insurance policy; and in the event that you choose not to seek advice from a professional adviser, you should consider whether the policy in question is suitable for you.  Your agreement to proceed to purchase insurance shall constitute your consent and confirmation that the Selected Product is suitable to your risks and needs and that Aon will not be required to seek quotes from other insurers nor identify any alternative insurance product for you.

General Information: The contents of this site are for general informational purposes only (and do not constitute any form of Legal , accounting, tax, regulatory or actuarial advice) and should not be used or relied upon as a substitute for detailed advice specific to you. Where this site includes a recommendation or an assessment of risk, such recommendation or assessment of risk is an expression of Aon’s opinion only and not a statement of fact. Any decision to rely upon any such recommendation or assessment will be solely at your own risk, for which Aon accepts no liability. The contents of this site do not replace the need for you to make your own assessment. Before taking any action based upon any of the contents of this site, you should consult an Aon professional or other appropriate advisor.

Aon is not the insurer of any risk and does not guarantee the acceptance of any application for insurance by any insurer or the availability or price of any form of insurance for your particular risks. Aon also makes no assurance as to the reasonableness of any insurance terms, nor the financial security or solvency of any insurer.  The final choice of insurer remains with you.

You must provide accurate, complete and timely information to enable us to make a fair presentation of the risk to your insurers. You must comply with your Legal duty to disclose all material facts when entering into a contract of insurance. You accept full responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided and appreciate that we will rely on the accuracy and completeness of the information you provide in arranging your insurances. Failure to provide all relevant information as described herein (collectively, “Relevant Information”) may prejudice your rights under a contract of insurance.
You must carefully review all documents we give you (including policies and endorsements) and advise us immediately if you notice any mistakes of fact or believe the contents do not address your needs.

Should a circumstance, event or loss occur which could result in you making a claim, you should advise the insurer of the details (“Claims Information”) as soon as possible and within the time required under your contract of insurance. Failure to advise an insurer of such a circumstance, event or loss could prejudice your rights under your contract of insurance.
If, at your request, an intermediary that is not affiliated with Aon is also used in any way in arranging any insurance you agree as follows:

  • Aon has no liability for any failure or refusal by that intermediary to disclose any remuneration;
  • Aon has no liability for any act, error or omission by that intermediary or its directors or officers; and
  • remuneration earned by that intermediary is separate from and in addition to remuneration earned by any Aon Group entity.

6.

Incorrect premium calculations: We make every effort to correctly determine the premium and (if applicable) statutory charges that apply to your insurance. However, occasionally errors can occur, for example, where we make an unintentional error or because a third party advises us of the wrong amount. Please note that we retain the right to correct any such error and you agree, to the extent permitted by law, not to hold Aon responsible for any loss you may suffer as a result of the error and its correction.

7.

Conflicts of interest and confidentiality:

Honesty and fairness
We treat our clients honestly and fairly. In circumstances where conflicts of interest arise, we manage such conflicts so that they do not materially affect the quality of the services we provide to you. We do this in a variety of ways including the following:

  • We maintain clear separation between different parts of our business where association could lead to conflicts arising;
  • We strongly promote our values, which includes openness, trust and integrity; and
  • We have staff dedicated to monitoring compliance.

Confidential information
We will keep all information received from you confidential, and use it solely for the purpose of providing services to you. However, our confidentiality obligation does not apply:

  • where you have given permission for us to disclose the information;
  • where disclosure is required to satisfy Legal obligations or regulatory requirements;
  • where disclosure is reasonably required to carry out the services we provide to you (for example providing information to current or prospective insurers);
  • where such information is in the public domain; or
  • where the information is lawfully in our possession at the time it is communicated to us.

We will put in place such arrangements as we see fit in order to ensure that the confidentiality of the information is maintained.

Other clients
Provided we keep your information confidential in accordance with these Terms & Conditions, you agree that we (and any other company in the Aon Group) may act for your competitors and for other clients whose interests are or may be opposed to yours.
In addition, you agree that we will not be under any obligation to disclose to you any information in respect of which we owe a duty of confidentiality to another client.

Clients involved in competitive situations
We have an extensive client base which means that there are often situations where two or more clients may be competing for the same project or acquisition or one client may be a seller and another client a buyer or bidder.
Where this is or could become the case, we deal with each client in a way that ensures that our service is not in any way impaired and that each client’s confidential information is kept strictly confidential. We will put in place such arrangements as we see fit in order to ensure that the confidentiality of your information is maintained.

Remuneration: You acknowledge and understand that Aon (and other entities within the Aon Group) may earn and retain remuneration in connection with insurance which we place for you. Also, Aon may receive additional remuneration from third parties, including insurers.
