Inherent Risks announces official launch

Global risk advisory, Inherent Risks, has today announced its official launch. The risk advisory, medical assistance and crisis management firm brings together a team of insurance, claims and medical assistance experts, including Dawn Page (director at the Hong Kong Tourism Board), Daryl Trawick (president of TrawickInternational), Dan Tuman (former president of Clements Worldwide), Mark Butler (former CEO at Europ Assistance) and Dan Kaine (former head of global assistance at Traveller Assist).

Recent assignments undertaken by the team include setting up and operating a crisis response centre to locate, coordinate transportation, and identify safe-havens for over two-hundred expat and local staff in Afghanistan in the wake of a coup by the Taliban; developing a COVID-19 compliance programme in support of the Olympic Games in Japan; delivering critical medical supplies to Liberia and the Democratic Republic of Congo during an Ebola outbreak; and resolving kidnap, extortion and threat cases in Haiti, Venezuela, Nigeria and the Philippines.

Mark Butler, head of strategy and development said: “As the former CEO of Europ Assistance and co-founder of Hotspot Cover, a travel insurance company that specialises in travel to high hazard regions, I understand the importance of partnering with a company with excellent networks, particularly in remote and even hostile regions, who can actually do what they say they can do, because lives, and the promise we have made to our travellers, depend on it. This opportunity just made sense. It fits seamlessly with our growth strategy and future plans.”

Dan Kaine, head of risk and crisis advisory added: “This launch announcement is a culmination of twelve-months of hard work, behind the scenes, listening to the market, refining our products, and ensuring the right people, processes and technologies are in place to provide outstanding and cost-effective services that our clients actually want and need.”
