LMI Phoenix Awards

‘50% of businesses fail within 2 years of a major insured event. LMI Group’s Phoenix Award recognises those businesses that had the management skill and tenacity, coupled with adequate insurance, to not only revive and survive, but truly thrive following such a loss/disruption. We congratulate the worthy recipients of the LMI Group’s Phoenix Award, who have been inducted into the exclusive Phoenix Club. The support and assistance provided by the broker during this time, can be easily overlooked given the enormity of the tasks facing the business. For this reason, The Phoenix Club recognises these dedicated professionals. As in practice, so too in our honour roll below, the broker stands beside their client through the good times and the bad, as a trusted adviser.’ – Prof. Allan Manning of LMI Group
