Audiovisual Equipment

Audiovisual equipment has a variety of applications: television, film, sporting events, festivals, concerts, exhibitions, fairs, etc. It can be split into four main categories: video (cameras, lenses, etc.); sound (microphones, UHF, etc.); light (projectors, etc.); and stage structures (lifting platforms, set scenery, etc.).

As they are easily transportable and moved frequently, this fragile equipment is highly vulnerable to theft and breakage (e.g., a fall, improper handling, impact while being moved, etc.).

When an incident occurs, loss adjusters must react quickly to avoid additional costs (e.g., rental fees or operational losses) and to ensure that the policyholder’s professional activity can proceed, all while respecting insurers’ coverage clauses.

Our loss adjusters, some of whom have a background in the world of entertainment, have all the technical skills needed to accurately calculate damages to audiovisual equipment. They also make sure to keep abreast of this field’s technological developments.


Loss adjuster

I started my career in event project management and audiovisual production, and then added to my skills a Master degree in Taxation. My legal and technical knowledge has enabled me to specialise as an insurance loss adjuster in these areas.
Whether a camera breaks or equipment is stolen, I go to the scene of the incident to assess the amount of damage. I handle cases for both small production companies and large TV channels, acting efficiently and with an open ear to all parties involved. Theatre holds a special place in my heart.

Loss adjuster

After graduating from Hong Kong Baptist University, I completed my studies, in French, in business and management. In 2014 I started working as a loss adjuster for an international firm.
In late 2015, I joined GM Consultant's Asia division to handle claims involving recourse in China and the Asia-Pacific region. I also manage claims in the field of Arts and Media, collaborating with the French teams and our Italian office, as well as cases involving financial fraud and professional liability.
I am fluent in four languages, which enables me to efficiently handle international cases.

Loss adjuster

After studying law, I joined GM Consultant in 2015. Part of the New Technologies & Cyber Risk division, I am responsible for damage claims, which mainly involve computer equipment.
In cases of breakage or theft, I investigate the causes of the incident, then assess the cost of repairing or replacing the equipment. For cases of data loss, I collaborate with the policyholder to calculate their loss and inform them of various possible recovery solutions. Highly attentive to the policyholder's needs, I analyse different situations within the scope of their coverage.
Passionate about sailing, I get out on the water as often as possible.
