Why Amlin

There are compelling reasons for our brokers and clients to work with us; the empowerment and skill of our people, our well capitalised operating platforms, the strength of our ratings, and the locations where we operate to name but a few. The value we add is also reflected in the many industry awards Amlin has received.

Our Platforms

We underwrite more than 30 classes of business through three underwriting platforms: Syndicate 2001 at Lloyd's, Amlin AG, Switzerland and Amlin Europe, The Netherlands. Our underwriting teams will help assess where risks can be most effectively placed.
