SPECIALIST UNDERWRITING AGENCIES PTY LTD is able to provide Professional Indemnity and similar Financial Lines products.  Our forte is in placing those more difficult risks where the traditional markets are unwilling to participate.

SUA’s strength begins with a dedicated team that appreciate your needs and the needs of your clients.  We understand what products are available in both the Australian and International Insurance Markets and, using only APRA authorised insurers, can tailor a solution to meet your clients’ requirements.

Further to a recent announcement by Axis Specialty Australia (AXIS), Specialist Underwriting Agencies Pty Ltd (SUA) has acquired the professional lines renewal rights from AXIS following AXIS’ commercial decision to cease underwriting risks in the Australian market. The arrangement does not include Financial Institutions and ASX 100 D&O risks.  Whilst we will endeavour to maintain current wordings, premium and deductible levels, each account will be considered on its merits and there may be subtle changes.

If you have any queries regarding an AXIS policy that is due for renewal, please contact either Quenten Dawson or Graeme Jensen.

For new business queries, Jo Lindsay-Eschbank will be pleased to assist.  Jo has over 20 years’ experience in the market both here and internationally, having provided insurance solutions for a wide range of affinity groups, professions and industries, one off placements and programmes. Together our experience brings a wealth of underwriting knowledge and expertise that we will be able to share whilst assisting in placing your clients’ cover.
