We operate in all geographies and cater for every major industry and business sector as well as niche markets. Moreover, we continually refine and expand our services to meet new needs.

Our business embraces wholesale, retail and reinsurance products, and is reinforced by a highly experienced in-house claims team that spans all our divisions. From a predominantly North American operation in the early years, we have widened our focus to include treaty and facultative insurance across a huge variety of business lines worldwide.
