In the Australian specialty insurance market, Berkley Insurance Australia (BIA) stands as a beacon of robust security, local authority and specialised expertise. With an unwavering focus on three key lines of insurance: Public & Products Liability, Professional Indemnity, and Management Liability, BIA distinguishes itself by not just participating in the market but leading it with expert knowledge and an unmatched commitment to service.

Unparalleled Security and Dependability

At BIA, we understand the importance of stability in the insurance sector. Berkley Insurance Australia is a member of the W. R. Berkley Corporation. All rated insurance company members of Berkley are assigned A+ (Superior) Financial Strength ratings by A.M. Best Company and A+ (Strong) by Standard & Poor’s.  This provides a firm foundation for the certainty and security that brokers and their clients need. This financial resilience ensures that we are there for our clients when they need us most, underpinning every policy, renewal or new business with reliability and trust.

Specialised Insurance Expertise in Critical Coverage Areas

Specialisation is at the heart of BIA’s approach. By focusing intensely on specific areas of specialty lines, we cultivate a depth of knowledge and skill that is rare amongst insurers. Our team of experts is not only well-versed in the intricacies of their respective fields but also stays ahead of evolving risks and regulations, ensuring that our coverage is always relevant and comprehensive.

Empowered Local Underwriting and Claims Handling

BIA empowers its local underwriting and claims teams with substantial authority. This local empowerment enables us to make quick, informed decisions without the need for external or timely overseas approvals. Our brokers benefit from this agility with faster quote turnarounds and prompt, decisive claims handling, which in turn enhances client satisfaction and minimises disruptions.

Responsive and Efficient Service

Efficiency is key in our operations. BIA boasts systems that allow for instant policy document issuance, reducing wait times and administrative burdens. This capability not only streamlines the process but also enhances the overall client experience by providing immediate confirmation and peace of mind.

Strong Appetite with Fewer Restrictions and High Capacity Limits

BIA maintains a strong appetite for risk throughout the year, with fewer restrictions and high coverage limits. This robust approach ensures that our brokers can rely on us for consistent and reliable coverage solutions, no matter the complexity or scale of the risk.
