More About our Marine Insurer
The premium you pay for your insurance is just one element of the decision you should make when insuring your boat, holiday home, or anything else you wish to insure. You should also consider the expertise and understanding of the insurer who provides you with your policy and their financial standing in the event of a claim. This is why we take huge comfort in working with Canopius, one of the top 10 insurers in the Lloyd’s of London insurance market.
Your marine policy will be underwritten by Canopius, a leading Lloyd’s underwriter that provides insurance across a broad range of marine insurance policies. Canopius take pride in the levels of service and technical expertise they offer and also have operations in Singapore and the Netherlands.
Canopius is a global speciality insurer and reinsurer and are one of the top 10 insurers in the Lloyd’s insurance market and wrote over $1.2 billion premium across the group in 2017.
Lloyd’s of London has been the centre of marine insurance for over 300 years. Read about the history of its formation and some of its historic claims
Canopius’s name reflects their heritage:
Nathaniel Canopius was a Cretan scholar studying at Balliol College, Oxford, who is reputed to have brewed the first cup of coffee in England in 1637. In the 17th century, Edward Lloyd’s coffee house became recognised as the place for obtaining marine insurance in London, thus the name Canopius provides a strong association with the Lloyd’s market, which remains at the core of their operations, and we are privileged to have dealt with Canopius for the past 13 years.
