Lion Underwriting
Professional Lines

Lion Underwriting can accommodate a broad appetite of professional lines starting with the more traditional professions through to hard-to-place occupations with a wide range of exposures.

We also have the ability to provide bespoke policies for niche industries as well as excess of loss covers.

Lions “Sweet spot” is those risks that have:

Professional Indemnity

A Fee income of $5,000,000 / Turnover of $50,000,000 (D&C) or less.

In relation to construction risks we are generally looking for risks with small to mid-sized projects and not those working on larger projects in excess of $50,000,000

That isn’t to say that we won’t entertain risks that are larger or have higher contract values on the construction side and are viewed on a case by case basis.

For risks in the Sweet spot we will write up to $5,000,000 Limit of Indemnity

We can also provide package policies to suit Related Products
