Single Risk Business

We have local underwriting teams with a primary focus across a broad spectrum of classes and segments.


The Canadian office is a conduit connecting Canadian insureds and brokers to global capacity for a variety of specialty lines. Our branch has both onsite underwriting and claims capabilities and we liaise closely with HDI Global Specialty SE underwriters worldwide who have vast expertise and experience in many classes of insurance business.

Delegated Authority Business

  • We seek to support specialist Managing General Agents (MGAs) who have a niche insurance offering, who value long-term partnerships and have their own infrastructure to service their business needs.
  • We clearly define underwriting authority for each MGA to avoid competition between HDI Global Specialty SE MGAs.
  • We are open to new ideas, lines of business, distribution channels, territories, and markets.
