Capabilities Overview

Ports & Terminals proposal form

Our clients include shipowners, shipmanagers, charterers (both time, voyage, slot & space), shipyards, port authorities, terminal operators (including stevedores and wharfingers), marine contractors and banks.  Alongside such diverse insurance classes, we also insure a variety of vessels, which range from super yachts to LNG carriers, from tankers to bulk carriers and from ferries to fishing vessels.

Our team of Marine specialists can draw on a wealth of experience and we have a deep commitment to understanding our clients’ needs and requirements. Utilising this extensive experience, it is our aim to provide accurate, impartial and up-to-date advice in helping our clients find the correct solution to their requirements.  Our commitment to first class service does not stop when the policy has been arranged; we pride ourselves on our service after the conclusion of the contract, we ensure the issuance of documentation is prompt and should there be a claim, a comprehensive level of claims support and assistance.

To ensure that we deliver competitive and innovative solutions to our clients risk management requirements, we access directly the global insurance markets in London (including Lloyd’s), Scandinavia, USA, Continental Europe, the Middle and Far East to name but a few.  With regard to P&I, we employ the same philosophy of having direct access to all of the members of the International Group of P&I Clubs as well as the fixed cost insurers.
