At all times we will act equitably and in the best interests of all parties in the contract of insurance.
That’s our claim.

Aequum Adjusters was founded in 2018 following requests of a number of insurers and underwriting agencies that wished to use an expert adjusting service which reflected their brand’s approach to high quality customer service, fairness and accuracy.

Aequum Adjusters is an autonomous division of the LMI Group that delivers loss adjusting services to niche clients in the general insurance industry which share these ideals.  Aequum Adjusters have adjusters in all Australian States and Territories and New Zealand.

Being part of a group known for its technical expertise, Aequum Adjusters have the ability to draw on all the resources of the group where required, but without ever compromising the trust placed in us by our Instructing Principals.

ADAM SMITH

PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS

National Diploma in Insurance Loss Adjusting
Associate Member of the Institute of Loss Adjusters of Southern Africa
Fellow International Institute of Claims Preparers

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Adam’s career in Insurance began in 1997, when he joined a family owned Loss Adjusting Company situated in Durban, South Africa. Prior to this, he worked as a Site Manager for Murray & Roberts, overseeing a number of Construction and Engineering Projects.

In 2010, after 13 years adjusting all classes of claims, including fire (buildings & contents); mechanical breakdown, goods in transit; business interruption, theft and claims relating to natural disasters, he decided to branch out and opened his own Loss Adjusting firm. The Company grew from strength to strength, based on the strong relationships forged both with Insurers and Brokers over his 18 years in the Insurance Market. During this time, Adam assisted with the settlement of several large losses both in the Commercial and Domestic Market.

Adam completed his National Diploma in Insurance Loss Adjusting during 2012, elevating him to the level of Associate Member of the Institute of Loss Adjusters of Southern Africa. He was, in the same year, elected by his Peers to the position of Chairman of the Kwa Zulu Natal province and served in this role until his recent resignation to take up the role of Victoria Claims Manager at LMIGroup in Australia.
