Aviation

Aviation rate trends have been increasing dramatically for the last few years. With capacity reducing and underwriters seeking greater premium levels for smaller use of their capacities, the role of an insurance broker has its challenges. However, it also presents great opportunities for experienced brokers to demonstrate their value, and how imaginative and resourceful approaches to risk placement can make a difference. Our experience spans the last 36 years, giving us the knowledge and capability to place a range of aviation risks on attractive terms.
