We underwrite our own products, providing us with the control, flexibility, and speed to meet your specific needs rather than only offering a ‘one size fits all’ service. We work alongside specialist partners and afford them delegated authority in areas that are traditionally classified as non-standard in the market. This enables your subject experts to define their own terms.
We are also able to offer individual underwriting for large commercial cases and delegated acceptance for clinical negligence and personal injury. We even consider delegated acceptance for smaller commercial schemes.
We do not impose onerous reporting requirements so you can get on with the business of running the claim and best serving your clients.
We also work with specialist brokers regarding all aspects of ATE insurance.
