Underwriter-Led Business Model – Strategically, we focus on specialty lines business with niche propositions, led by underwriters with specialist expertise who are committed to service excellence.
Virtual Insurer – We see ourselves as a virtual insurer who underwrites on others’ balance sheets and treat our capacity providers’ capital as if it were our own – exercising the same underwriting discipline and protecting capital.
Partner with Capacity Providers – We collaborate with our capacity providers, rather than compete with them. We focus our energies on building distribution to access risks that capacity providers would not otherwise see.
