Catlin is a market leader in Marine Liability and in Asia Pacific we have underwriters in Singapore and Hong Kong.
The Underwriting teams are fully supported by our class leading claims team based in Singapore who have the necessary legal and technical expertise that this line of business requires.
We write the full range of Marine Liability covers including:
Protection and Indemnity (P&I)
P&I is a key component of the account. Catlin leads the Reinsurance Programme of the International Group of P&I Clubs which covers 90 per cent of the world’s ocean-going tonnage. Catlin also insures P&I risks which fall outside of the International Group reinsurance programme. Such risks may include vessels which are not entered with a P&I club or specialised ‘non-poolable’ P&I risks which are not covered under P&I insurance.
Ports and Terminals
We insure ports, terminals and stevedores throughout the world offering coverage for their liability to cargo owners, ship owners and other third parties. We can also offer package covers including physical loss or damage to handling equipment, jetties and wharves.
We offer Charterers’ Liability on a stand alone basis on both a quota share and excess of loss basis.
Catlin insures the liabilities of several ship repair facilities within the Asia Pacific region.
Expertise in Marine Liability
The Marine underwriting team in Asia Pacific offers a wealth of experience, along with expert knowledge of local and international shipping markets.
We also have an excellent claims function based in our Singapore office.
