Over the past 2 years, Lion Underwriting has grown to become a significant player & provider of General Liability insurance in certain hard-to-place sectors.
Besides General Liability, we also have a Property Underwriting division that has the capacity to write up to $20 million limit per risk. The focus has been mainly on difficult to insure risks (such as wooden pubs in remote locations).
Although we tackle a difficult fringe of the market, it doesn’t preclude us from writing the vanilla type risks, for both Property & Liability.
What differentiates us from our peers is that, whilst we have partners, we are totally independently owned. In the current market of acquisitions and mergers, this position is becoming fairly unique. We pride ourselves on being innovative in conceptualizing, structuring and developing new products whilst always striving to keep premiums down and policy coverage as broad as possible.
We generate our growth from customer referrals, specialist knowledge, and a superior product / price proposition that meet very specific needs. By streamlining our internal and external processes we provide our customers with the best service possible. We strive for continuous improvement, as such we will soon be able to offer our valued brokers the capability of contacting us not only on-line, but also through a Smartphone app.
Lion Underwriting is proud to work closely with insurance brokers within national clusters, smaller groups, Authorised Rep models or independents.
From our initial base in Sydney, we have now also operate from self-contained offices in South East Queensland.
Some nice things customers have said about us -
It is a pleasure dealing with Lion Underwriting in our search for appropriate cover and competitive terms. Their professional but friendly approach makes our relationship something of value. We strongly recommend them if an alternative market is needed. - Stephen Shur - Account Manager - Denboer & Assoc. Ins. Brokers.
Lion Underwriting’s expertise in hard to place risks has been of great benefit to our brokerage. In dealing with Lion Underwriting we now have greater access to the Lloyd’s market which has enabled us to retain accounts at more beneficial terms for our clients and win business that we otherwise wouldn’t have. The service provided is second to none and we would encourage all brokers to include Lion Underwriting when approaching the market. - Jarrod O’Brien - Principal - Ausure Macarthur.
