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 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 client relationships spanning more than 20 years.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the policy, we will pay claims for fire, explosion, flood, windstorm, earthquake, Difference in Conditions (DIC), Wind Deductible Buy Back (WDBB), and Earthquake Deductible Buy Back (EQDBB). We also offer parametric insurance.

Worldwide with a focus on the US and Canada
Small commercial/commercial package
We offer ‘full value’ policies and, in some exceptional circumstances, will consider first loss or excess policies. The perils that we cover include ‘basic’ (named perils), ‘broad’ (named perils plus falling objects, weight of ice and snow and water damage) and ‘special form’ (all risks). We target insured values of US$ 1,000,000 or less.
We can offer a commercial package product with insured values of US$ 5,000,000 or less in the US and Canada. A key differentiator to our Lloyd’s competitors is that our CGL claims are managed by Beazley claims adjusters, who are based in the US.

We underwrite small, medium and high valued homeowner insurance in the United States (excluding California), Canada and rest of the world in partnership with local coverholders from our base at Lloyd’s.
