Treaty Reinsurance

Extensive experience, significant capacity and Ascot’s characteristically entrepreneurial approach to risk are what separates Ascot from other reinsurers.

We are one of the few Syndicates at Lloyd’s to write a multi-class excess of loss account. We do not view our product lines as commodities but constantly strive to be innovative and to add value, offering bespoke solutions for both Marine and Non-Marine portfolios.

Our underwriters are fully empowered to make decisions. We are not dependent on third-party models, nor are we encumbered by excessive bureaucracy or by underwriting committees.

Typically, we will provide quotations within 48 hours of being briefed, and maintain a strong presence at the box. We’re also happy to travel to meet you and really understand the challenges of your unique environment.

Please contact one of our underwriters for more information about Ascot’s Treaty Reinsurance products and services.
