Use of Average Adjusters
“The use of the adjuster individually is to grease the wheels of commercial machinery, to do work which neither the assured nor the underwriter have either the time, training or inclination for, in such a manner as to expedite settlements without resort to the expensive machinery of the law.
His duty is to act fairly to both parties to the contract of insurance or the contract of carriage, to set down all material facts, withholding nothing of importance, to present figures of the suggested settlement in such a manner as to be capable of being easily grasped and, above all, in all cases wherever definite law or practice is not clear, to place the matter before the parties interested in such a manner as to facilitate an agreement between them.”
Ernest Robert Lindley
Chairman of the Association of Average Adjusters, 1904

Average Adjusting in Hong Kong
Average adjusting has always been a little-known profession which originated in the UK with early average adjusters practising in the City of London from about 1800 onwards. The British Association of Average Adjusters was founded in 1869. It is submitted that the profession was first introduced to the Far East in the mid 1920’s when William R.M. Stevens came to practice in Shanghai, who subsequently moved down to set up the first average adjusting firm in Hong Kong in 1945.
