Global claims services provider partners with Egypt Global Adjusters to offer specialist services to clients in Egypt.
ATLANTA, GA – FEBRUARY 2023: Global claims services provider McLarens has established a strategic alliance with Egypt Global Adjusters (EGA), a leading Egyptian loss adjusting firm headquartered in Cairo. Operating as McLarens’ exclusive affiliate in Egypt, the partnership with EGA will further strengthen McLarens’ regional footprint, offering both domestic and international clients access to comprehensive claims coverage across Egypt. The alliance also provides a platform for growth across North Africa.
The partnership enables McLarens to provide an immediate response to any claims matters arising in Egypt and better support clients across the London, European and Middle East (re)insurance markets. This includes global accounts with operations in Egypt, for whom McLarens has historically handled claims via its UAE and/or London operations.
EGA’s team of loss adjusters and risk assessors offers loss adjusting, pre-risk survey, risk engineering survey and insurance evaluation services. With a focus on cross-class complex and commercial claims, the team is expert in handling losses across a range of industries and sectors, including engineering, marine, property and liability.
The affiliate business is led by founder and Chairman, Khaled Anwer Abdulrahman. Khaled started his career as a loss adjuster in 2005 working with AHLA-Egypt Engineering Company, before becoming an independent loss adjuster in 2013. During his career to date he has conducted numerous industrial pre-risk surveys and handled claims across the commercial spectrum, including major fire, property, engineering, marine cargo, liability, theft, and business interruption losses.
The partnership will expand McLarens’ regional network in the Middle East & Africa, now incorporating 19 offices across 13 countries.

Having worked with EGA for the past 12 months, it’s clear that the team is just that and, importantly, share the same client-centric ethos as McLarens.
