Business structure

Structured by geography and product, our long-held business strategy has helped us grow from a niche Lloyd’s underwriter to an international insurance group with a powerful consumer brand.

Big-ticket – these are the biggest insurance risks we underwrite and are normally traded internationally and through a broker.

Retail – smaller or more specialist risks where we work with our clients either directly or through a broker.
