Overview of products

We offer a broad range of products. Classes of business such as Political Violence do not have specific classification in Canada but can be written under one of the relevant Canadian classes, such as Property or Liability.

We are licensed in all provinces of Canada and began writing business in Canada in 2011.

Our Canadian Branch is the first point of call for all Canadian business enquiries. We liaise closely with HDI Global Specialty SE underwriters worldwide who have vast expertise and experience in many classes of insurance business.


Our approach is the same worldwide namely:

  • 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
  • Clearly define underwriting authority for each MGA to avoid competition between HDI Global Specialty SE MGAs
  • Open to new ideas, lines of business, distribution channels, territories & markets
