    We offer binding authorities to experienced agents throughout the world who have access to small profitable commercial business, jeweller's block, art dealers, Swiss property and auto physical damage.

    We have a dedicated wordings team that can help brokers finesse the wordings to the specific needs of their clients.

    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.

    Small commercial: We offer 'full value' policies and, other than in exceptional circumstances, do not 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).

    Forced placed property: This provides fire and extended coverage, all risks of physical loss or damage insurance related to loans for which no proof of insurance has been provided to the mortgagee.

    Inland marine: This indemnifies loss to movable or specialised types of property and equipment. This form of insurance developed out of ocean marine insurance and includes property coverage for construction equipment, medical diagnostic equipment, fine arts, solar panels, wind turbines, cameras and movie equipment, musical instruments, and a wide variety of other types of property.
