Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 30, 2013 –
As the latest company to join the IGY Anchor Club as Partners, MHG Insurance has further expanded its reach in the superyacht business sector. The IGY Anchor Club provides its partners the opportunity to reach IGY customers all over the network in 7 countries and 13 marinas with relevant messaging of top goods and services within the industry.
MHG and IGY’s interests to meet its customers’ needs are one and the same, and those aligned interests have culminated in a partnership to reach the IGY network through its Anchor Club.
MHG’s goal is to relay the importance of all types of insurances, but particularly health, life and disability insurance for yacht captains and crew.
“Captains and crew are exposed to hazards that could seriously affect their short and long term financial goals.” says Clayton Swart, Manager of Business Development for MHG. “In addition, given the recent changes in Health Care Reform and the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006), we want to take this opportunity to reach out to captains and crew who have concerns and questions as well as to simply pass along what we know to those that do not.”
The company has formed MHG University with which it plans to educate captains and crew on the changes that have recently taken place and how best to approach those changes on an individual basis. With its unique experience and detailed knowledge, MHG will channel its insight through the IGY Anchor Club, where it will open its proverbial doors to any questions regarding healthcare and insurance decision-making.
To kick start the program, MHG’s first avenue of communication to those who would like to learn more about the reforms or anything insurance-related, is by contacting Clayton.
MHG encourages any and all who would like to learn more, to write directly with their insurance or reform questions or concerns to:
