As company operations grow in size and scope, so does the risk of loss relating to property, plant, and equipment. Ankura’s property insurance valuation team assists companies by conducting thorough and reliable appraisals to help our clients mitigate the risk of loss, co-insurance penalties on filed claims, and excessive insurance premiums.
Insurance underwriters often scrutinize company estimates and request a third-party appraisal to establish a reasonable basis for insurable replacement cost. Ankura’s independent valuation analysis provides underwriters with confidence of the insurable replacement cost of the property, reducing the time, and cost required to obtain appropriate property insurance coverage.
Our valuations have been used to correct “mass accounting assets” to provide greater detail for future accounting purposes, identify federal depreciation and property tax savings opportunities for acquisition transactions, and establish accounting records for IFRS reporting.
