The part we play

Insurance is only ever a problem when it’s arranged badly in the first place, or there is a misunderstanding between policyholder, broker and us (the underwriter). We underwrite works cases all day every day – so if something doesn’t look right or just plain isn’t, we’ll say.

We became experts by being obsessive about our subject. Our founder, Douglas, has been involved in property and works insurance for almost 30 years. He inspired the team to not only become experts in their own right, but to embody the commitment in making sure we always do the right thing.

From our very first day, we decided we would be an advice-led business. Other than being told we were mad, this strategy has worked perfectly; bringing us closer to the partners who value what we do.

Partners don’t only get access to the best mix of markets for this class of business when working with Renovation Underwriting. We are the only underwriter in this sector that engages directly with a policyholder’s project professionals and contract administrators to give advice when needed. And we were the first in the sector to offer CPD training to build greater insights too.
