In the realm of insurance, there is a unique policy that offers financial protection against delays in project start-ups – Delay in Start-Up (DSU) insurance. Shahenshah Insurance Brokers (SIB), a prominent insurance brokerage firm in Pakistan, is equipped to provide expert guidance on DSU insurance, helping businesses navigate its nuances and complexities.
Understanding DSU Insurance
DSU insurance, also known as ‘Advanced Loss of Profits’ (ALOP) insurance, is designed to cover financial losses a business might incur if a project is delayed due to damage or loss to insured items during construction or installation. This coverage protects against loss of gross profit, including standing charges and increased costs of working, due to a delay in the start-up of operations.
Significance of DSU Insurance
The financial implications of a delay in a project can be enormous. The importance of DSU insurance lies in its ability to protect a business’s bottom line by:
- Risk Transfer: Transferring the financial risk of project delays from the business to the insurer.
- Cash Flow Protection: Protecting the anticipated revenue and cash flow of the business during the delay period.
- Loan Servicing: Ensuring that the business can continue to service any loans taken for the project.
