Antares’ new Accident & Health division is a specialist, multinational insurer and reinsurer in the best tradition of Lloyd’s. Our underwriting focuses on group and individual accident and sickness business, often connected to travel, particularly through long-term coverholder relationships. We can provide lead terms or provide capacity in a follow role. We can develop bespoke wordings that suit a customers’ needs and create white label products in support of our distribution partners. Our coverage is uniquely supported by a range of speciality services which extend our group and individual policies to give insureds the additional peace of mind that standard policies don’t provide, and add tremendous value to our coverholder’s offerings.
Strong distribution relationships are our lifeblood. We are believers in the power of relationships and see this as fundamental to our business development. We prefer to lead business and can take lines of 100% if desired, however we also welcome subscription business. We are a tight-knit team that makes decisions quickly, without referral to distant managers.
Rather than searching for reasons why we cannot write a risk, we prefer to find ways in which we can. We understand that in our speciality area, standard wordings often don’t suit specific customers’ needs, so we can always try to work towards developing policies to meet their needs. We have a good range of appetite for a variety of risks, and currently underwrite employees across a number of occupations, armed security personnel,climbers attempting the summits of the worlds highest peaks , sports professionals and ships crew.
Our focus is on coverholder relationships, where we have the support of an excellent delegated Underwriting function, affinity groups, and membership schemes and we are intent on delivering solutions to new and existing customers, clients and brokers.We aim to grow our new division to develop a diverse book, spread geographically and by risk type and we plan to increase our presence internationally. Above all, however, our goal is always to examine risks carefully to find appropriate, often bespoke solutions that help individuals and groups to achieve the confidence that they are properly insured for the often unusual personal risks they face. We also have dedicated claims adjuster, Andre Guthrie.
