Our underwriters are experts in their respective fields and are equipped to make quick decisions without the need for referral. Through clear directions and open discussions our coverholders are empowered to do the same. This coupled with in-depth knowledge of local territories as well as an integrated claims team means we consistently deliver expert advice and a great service.
We have a dedicated wordings team that can help brokers finesse the wordings to the specific needs of their clients. Our wordings specialists also sit at the Lloyd's box and can be accessed alongside our underwriters offering dedicated time to brokers to look through the wordings together.
We typically underwrite risks with a risk limit of less than US$1m but are able to cover risks with an insured value of up to US$5m. We insure office buildings, hotels, restaurants, bars, retail spaces and apartments. Our products also include forced place property, motor truck cargo/auto physical damage and inland marine.
We seek to develop long-term partnerships with coverholders that can demonstrate expertise in the risks they underwrite, an intimate understanding of their territories and a stable track record with a healthy balance between size of risk and premium. We make a point to meet our key coverholders whenever possible. Though we have grown steadily, we also value long term relations with many clients relationships spanning more than 20 years.
