Ascot Houston

Ascot Underwriting Inc. (AUI) is incorporated in the state of Delaware and offers US brokers direct access to Ascot’s innovative underwriting, providing local products and services for business placed in the domestic market.

We can offer multiple classes of business for the same assured and our direct or reinsurance products are developed specifically for the US market. Our location in a convenient time zone allows for rapid response times.

AUI is not meant to change the way major London placements are structured. Rather, it helps us to raise our profile, strengthen relationships, and continue to build our position in the local market. Through AUI we can continue to support client programmes and offer a surplus lines market solution. In addition to traditional energy business, AUI is an access point for Ascot Renewco, as well as raising awareness for other new Ascot products and services.

AUI follows domestic markets and domestic policy forms and trades as a Lloyd’s syndicate – with surplus lines licences throughout the USA.
