Investment in scientific activities which include environment protection and development, land prospecting energy and technological issues are beset with high risks on people and their property.

To avoid gigantic losses that may be caused by such exercises, investors or their managers need to have amongst many other insurances, Public Liability Insurance to recover for claims made for third parties' loss of life, materials, or personal injury.

Furthermore, investors are invited to enjoy the security offered through the Group Personal Accident Insurance, and Workmen's Compensation Insurance which takes care, on behalf of the employers, for claims for injury or death to the personnel on duty.

For details on these and other related insurances, contact:
