About Us Products Contact Us

Effective protection against liabilities arising from claims brought by third parties is a must for any business. We have the expertise, capacity and appetite to help you manage your exposures – wherever you operate in the world.

Our General Liability insurance protects customers if they injure or damage a third party in the course of carrying out their work. We offer exceptionally large capacity of up to £100m.

A broad appetite

We have a very broad appetite for liability risks, including Public Liability, Product Liability, Pollution Liability, Employers’ Liability, Excess Auto Liability, Product Recall, and Incidental Errors and Omissions. In France, we also offer Decennial and Dommage Ouvrage covers. We are able to cover the full spectrum of industry sectors, from automotive to chemicals, construction, energy, manufacturing, real estate, transport and logistics, and utilities

Tailored cover

We are known for our entrepreneurial approach and our willingness to consider unusual or complex risks. We’re geared to finding solutions, whatever challenges or opportunities you may have, and will tailor our policies to fit your particular needs. As we understand the time pressure that customers and brokers are often under, you’ll always deal with experienced underwriters with the authority to make decisions.

Long-term commitment

With several decades of experience in General Liability, we have earned a reputation for sticking with customers and sectors through good times and bad. We don’t dip in and out of the market as rates go up and down; we’re in it for the long haul, delivering the stability and continuity that our customers value.

Support on all sides

As we believe that prevention is better than cure, our Risk Solutions team can provide you with effective assistance across a wide range of risk management issues. If you do suffer a loss, our Claims team is highly experienced at dealing with large, complex claims and will work closely with you to provide the best possible defence and help you get back to running your business as quickly as possible.

Global capabilities

Supported by the financial strength and resources of the QBE Group, we offer truly global capabilities – and responsive local servicing for all of your overseas operations. For companies with operations in multiple territories, we can write global programmes that provide local policies and claims capabilities, where required.
