Our Product

Each of our underwriters specialises in a specific region and class. We have a suite of specialist exclusive products and can tailor bespoke coverage to match an individual client’s needs.

Our financial institutions insurance covers institutions against crime, professional indemnity and Directors’ and Officers’ Liability exposures. The team writes risks around the world with lead expertise for both mature and emerging economies.

Institutions covered include commercial, retail and investment banks, asset managers, stockbrokers and insurance companies. We also offer commercial crime coverage covering employee fidelity for non-financial organisations.

Computer Crime

Available to financial and commercial entities, our first party policy covers the insured against third parties misappropriating funds via the insured’s computer systems.


Our first party policy covers the insured against employee infidelity, physical loss or theft of valuable property on premises or in transit and the third party theft of funds via forgery or falsification of certain types of documentation.

Directors' and Officers' Liability

Our third party policy covers Directors and Officers of the insured for claims made against them arising from a wrongful act in their capacity as Directors and Officers.

Professional Indemnity

Our third party policy covers the insured for claims made against them for negligent handling of a client’s business. We offer this cover to a wide range of financial institutions and in certain territories can provide it on a civil liability basis.

Our maximum available capacity is US $15m, £10m or €15m.
