What are specialist policies?
Specialist policies are insurance policies that are not typically covered by conventional insurers. They are also often referred to as niche insurance policies or non-standard policies. We are proud to specialise in this type of cover, allowing those who may be considered high-risk by other underwriting firms to gain access to the particular insurance that they may need.
The reasons that this type of cover may be considered ‘specialist’ are far-ranging, and the types of policy that we actively seek to underwrite are covered by in the section above. Rest assured that we will look to any potential cases on an individual basis, whether they are considered non-standard for a singular factor, or for a combination of multiple reasons.
