RIGA FC WITH THE TRIUMPH ENDS THE 2018 SEASON

12.11.2018

We are proud to say that Marine Services Group is the general sponsor of the football club Riga and our logo is on the team players’ shirts. The whole team played at its maximum, but we still want to praise the goalkeeper Roberts Ozols who we see as a Superhero. At the club’s end of season event, we presented him an accident insurance certificate for the whole year 2019. Everyone knows that we insure ships and cargo, but our non-marine services are gradually becoming more recognized and popular (transport insurance, private insurance, liability insurance, property and financial risks).

We are delighted with the achievements of Riga FC and we wish them to continue as successfully!

NORDIC MARINE INSURANCE PLAN OF 2013, VERSION 2019

18.10.2018

Nordic Marine Insurance Plan — the rules of marine insurance, created jointly by the Association of Marine Insurers of the Nordic countries and the Association of Shipowners of the Nordic countries. The rules are widely used not only in the Baltic States and Scandinavia, but also in a whole World. In 2019, a new version of the rules comes into force (https://lnkd.in/gBSBz-6). In order to get acquainted with all the innovations in a timely manner our colleagues from Marine Services Group, the vessel insurance brokers, as well as the claims managers, are on three days in intensive training of the Nordic Plan in the Greek city of Piraeus. The course contains all the main sections of the Nordic Marine Insurance Plan, but, most importantly, the training is based on practical situations and case studies, which best helps to understand the nuances of the new version of rules. We will be happy to advise our clients on all issues related to the Nordic Marine Insurance Plan and share knowledge.
