France - Groupe Legendre
On 1st June 2018, LEGENDRE Group chose us to advise them on all their insurance requirements.

With a staff of over 2 000 and a turnover of 730 million euros in 2019, this company operates not only in the area of construction but also in property and land development.

Africa - Thaï Union Europe
For over 12 years now we have been securing THAI UNION EUROPE’s assets.
In 2017, serious industrial damage occurred on the site of one of their subsidiaries in Ghana.
Our teams were quickly on the spot and able to meet the subsidiary, the surveyors and the local insurers. Assistance was set up on a large scale by the Bessé teams for and with the client (more than 250 hours), to finalise assessing the cost of damage and settlement for this major claim.
India - Vicat
With VICAT, which is present in twelve countries (France, Egypt, United States, India, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Mali, Mauritania, Switzerland, Italy, Turkey, Brazil), we have pushed international assistance as far as we can as each site belonging to the group is audited at least once every two years. During these inspections, the purpose of which is to measure how each site is progressing, to ensure the same quality of risks for all but also to settle claims and circulate all necessary information, Bessé is systematically by VICAT’s side, especially for meeting local insurers and brokers as often as required.
Australia - Thales
THALES is a major actor in the realm of new technology (defence, transport, security,…).
We work together on all their marine risks to provide tailored solutions for transferring their risks. Through the insurance markets both in London and on the Continent, we have set up a range of insurance cover enabling them to work on building projects and perform maintenance in operational condition both on surface ships and on sub-marines, in particular in Canada and Australia. Now, this coverage benefits the whole group in 12 countries on all 5 continents.
In all the sectors of activity that we cover, we aim to give you the same standard of service abroad as in France. Beyond our borders, Bessé proves its ability to remain just as flexible in coordinating international programmes by working with its selected local partners.
