More about Scott

Scott Fawke, Co-Owner and Managing Director of the Ausure Coast & Country insurance brokerage firm, started in the insurance Industry in 1993, achieved his Diploma in Financial Services in General Insurance in 2000 and most recently his Diploma in Financial Planning in 2012. Over the last 28 years, Scott has held senior roles with Global Insurance Companies and Large National Brokers.

Scott’s ability to find solutions for the most complex of insurance programs is one of his points of difference. No risk is too big or small, easy, or hard for Scott to find an insurer willing to take on the risk.

Scott presents a clear and concise explanation of all his actions ensuring that all his customers are comfortable with where their policies are placed and why so that they are able to utilise the coverage to its fullest. This makes sure that Scott takes the business of placing insurance out of the “expense” column and puts it firmly in the “asset” column, something that you will find reflected in the testimonials from some of his current clients.

Scott also understands that no two risks are the same and makes sure that all the solutions that he puts forward are not reproduced but customised to the individual needs of his clients.
