Who we are

We are Australia's Award Winning Specialist Insurer.

We are an authoritative general insurer with a motto of local underwriters supporting local brokers.  We encourage our brokers to pick up the phone and discuss their client’s risks so we can work together to find the most suitable coverage solution for the insured, our mutual client.

We consider ourselves a knowledgeable resource with underwriters who specialise in particular product lines, available when you need the support.  Our brokers and policyholders expect to be treated as individuals by an insurer who understands their specialist business risk exposures and provides solutions to both underwriting and claims.

We are authorised and regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) which is the prudential regulator of the Australian financial services industry.
