Cordaet expands Van Ameyde’s complex loss-adjusting services
On 14 January 2019 Dutch bodily injury loss adjusters Cordaet and Van Ameyde have signed the share purchase agreement. The share purchase does not result in changes for the company: Cordaet remains operational from its current offices as an independent company, retaining its own brand name, management – Jan Verra and Bart Waterbolk – and 33 staff.
The acquisition is in line with Van Ameyde’s strategy of serving the complex loss adjusting market in all non-life business lines. Although Van Ameyde offers bodily injury claims management, the company did not yet offer loss adjusting services in this line.
Van Ameyde Board Member Bob de Bruijn explains, “Van Ameyde aims to serve its customers with strong brands in all private and commercial lines, in particular in the area of complex losses. In terms of quality, brand strength and business lines, Cordaet is the perfect match, expanding services with bodily injury loss adjusting.”
The Cordaet organisation will continue to pursue its current course. As to this strategic cooperation with Van Ameyde, Cordaet’s management Jan Verra and Bart Waterbolk say, “Van Ameyde is a strong partner and will support Cordaets operational management if desired. In addition, Cordaet will have access to Van Ameyde’s IT expertise. The possibility to maintain our independence played an important part in our decision-making process.”
Cordaet is a loss adjusting organisation specialised in complex bodily injury claims, operating throughout the Netherlands. Its customers are insurers, insurance brokers, corporates and government agencies. In addition to adjusting bodily injury losses, loss of dependency and occupational disease claims, Cordaet investigates and determines liability. Its in-house actuaries make and check actuarial calculations.
