Advanta News - April 2015

Apr 10, 2015
Over the past few years, Advanta has embarked on an ambitious (but canny) strategy to extend its network and bring its services to more regions through the opening of new offices and partnerships. The results of our initiatives have exceeded our expectations and our clients’ response has been very positive which is encouraging.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of Advanta offices in India and Oman, as well as a significant addition to our team in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Over the course of our long-standing partnership with PISLA in India, we have built a team of adjusters and directors who strongly share our business view and working ethos. The next step was to start a joint operation which has now crystallised with the opening of Advanta India, headed by Mr Rajan Srivatsan and Mr Rajangam Balakrishnan.

Mr Srivatsan, Fellow Chartered Accountant (FCA) and Associate Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA), has more than 30 years’ experience as Loss Adjuster and Surveyor specialising in BI, Fidelity Guarantee and Catastrophe work. Mr Balakrishnan, BSc Eng (Chemical Technology) and Technical Committee Member of the National Safety Council in India, has over 30 years’ experience in Loss Adjusting and Risk Engineering. He is an internationally recognised authority in the field oil refineries and petrochemical plants.

Advanta Oman will be headed by Richard Dixon, a proficient and experienced loss adjuster and country manager with more than 30 years’ experience, most of them in the Middle East. Aside from his managerial functions, Richard is specialised in Energy CAR / EAR, having handled a number of multi-million pound claims arising out of significant projects in the region. As the rest our network these new offices count with the full support and expertise of our team in London.

We have also strengthened our team in Sub-Saharan Africa through a local partnership in Mauritius with Consultec, a great team with wide technical expertise and experience in the region.

We take the opportunity to wish our new offices (Captains and all hands) good fortune and success!
