Our Approach

We bring to the US Livestock and Agriculture markets something unique – an online digital platform which makes procuring a quote from us quicker and easier than ever before. Of course, some risks will require closer inspection, and for those we have our vastly experienced team, able to write all manner of business within our defined risk appetite.

Our model is simple and proven. We are forever focused on generating meaningful returns for capacity providers which, in turn, allows us to continually increase the volume of new lines of specialty business that support our brokers. We do this using our proprietary underwriting models, delivered by our deeply knowledgeable and experienced front-line underwriters, and always with an unwavering commitment to digital transformation and data-driven underwriting. It’s a truly sustainable model that works for everyone.

Digital transformation

We embrace the opportunities that the digital world brings because we know that it will help fuel and sustain our ambitious growth trajectory over the coming years.

Digital brings many opportunities and huge upside for those that are agile enough to capitalise. From using simple applications to reduce manual tasks and their associated costs, to increasing the reach of our specialist products and pricing our risks more accurately than our peers, we know how to harness and use digital. To date, we have already invested over USD1,000,000 in our IT ecosystem, and like so many of the leading digital organisations around the world, we understand that the key to unlocking opportunity sits firmly with having a cost effective ability to capture, store, analyse and present quality data, that can be used to drive business decisions. Our investment in technology continues to a key cornerstone of our commercial strategy, and as we speak, we have a number of key strategic digital projects in motion to ensure that we capitalise on the opportunities.
