Hardy underwrites marine, aviation and a broad range of non-marine risks both on a direct and reinsurance basis. Four business units have been established, enabling a clear focus on distinct market sectors. The business units include Marine and Aviation, Non Marine Property, Property Treaty and Specialty Lines.

Hardy underwriters have a strong commitment to technical pricing. This can lead to fluctuations in income from year to year, but, importantly, offers brokers and clients a consistency of approach to pricing and excellent security for future claims payment.

It is this underwriting-led approach that has enabled Hardy to build a strong reputation as a respected leader across the portfolio.

Clients are offered a long-term, stable and secure underwriting partner, with prompt claims payment and service excellence being at the heart of the philosophy.
