    From office buildings and hospitals to heavy industrial sites, we insure large commercial property business around the world.

    In a difficult class of business, in which few are able to maintain a sustained presence, our underwriters in the UK and Singapore work together with Lloyd's brokers and their clients to create customised policies. It is therefore no surprise that so many of our relationships go back well over two decades.

    Our reputation in the field of large commercial property risks is reflected in the fact that we are the lead underwriter on around 75% of the business we write. We are known for our disciplined underwriting approach whether on a primary or excess basis, bespoke wordings and stable partnerships with existing accounts of 20-30 years. This approach has allowed for our long term stability when others have had to leave the market.
