underwriting expertise

Based in the Lloyd’s building with our capacity providers, we can reach decisions quickly and efficiently.

Since 2011 (when we traded under a different brand), we have provided two distinct, specialist lines of business – cyber insurance and insurance for financial institutions. Without the distractions of other lines, we are able to be entirely focused on providing the best possible cover in these areas.

Our underwriters, Kevin Kettrick and David Leaper, are held in the highest regard for their expertise in their respective areas, with over 70 years’ experience between them. Importantly, they also pride themselves on their responsiveness; our broker partners are able to speak directly to the decision makers, from the moment they engage with us.

Ptarmigan Underwriting Agency’s capacity providers are selected Lloyd’s syndicates and the International Insurance Company of Hannover SE. That they have entrusted us to underwrite on their behalf is a testament to our credibility.

What makes Ptarmigan Underwriting Agency different?

  • We only write cyber insurance and insurance for financial institutions – we are not generalist underwriters, we are truly specialists in what we do.
  • Based in the Lloyd’s building on Lime Street, London, we are right at the heart of the action. Sitting alongside our capacity providers – Lloyd’s syndicates and International Insurance Company of Hannover SE – we can reach decisions quickly and efficiently.
  • Our broking partners have direct access to our underwriters.
  • No 2–3 week wait for a decision – we typically turn around a quote within 24 hours.
  • Ptarmigan Underwriting Agency is a trading name of Stackhouse Poland Ltd, a Lloyd’s broker which provides administrative services to Ptarmigan Underwriting Agency, and additional assurance to our clients and partners in respect of our financial stability.
