Property

We provide coverage for all areas of non-marine property insurance, excluding natural resources. We provide risk transfer solutions to a wide variety of property classes from real estate to the manufacturing and processing sectors, from steel to semi-conductors.

Ascot’s property team has the largest open market North American property book in Lloyd’s, complimented by a significant international portfolio. We pride ourselves on our innovation and flexibility and believe that our focus on service and the unparalleled capacity we can bring to bear truly differentiate us to our brokers and clients.

With over 50 years combined experience in the market our underwriters are fully empowered decision makers who are not dependent on third party models nor encumbered by excessive bureaucracy. We travel extensively and build and maintain close client relationships to gain a true understanding of their needs and the risks we are writing. This allows us, where required, to design and provide individually tailored policies that cater for our clients’ complex needs, and we are happy to step outside the norm to provide solutions that may not otherwise be available.

We are a market leader in this class and lead on some 60% of business we write. Please contact one of our underwriters for more information about Ascot’s property products and services.
