Owning or operating vessels involve numerous and complex liability risks, including crew and stowaways, third party damage and loss, pollution and oil spills, towage and wreck removal.

Our P&I experts provide a complete service that is tailor-made to your precise needs, including programme design, placement, documentation, accounting, claims and risk advice.

Our clients can draw on our more than 50 years’ experience of P&I risks and claims. We protect approximately 3,000 vessels from every shipping sector: tankers, bulk carriers, passenger and cruise ships, yachts, offshore and specialist vessels, and dry cargo. 

Finding the right partner for your P&I risks is key. With more than 100 P&I dedicated multilingual staff members globally, we provide you with direct access to all the P&I Clubs and fixed premium Insurers who will best suit your needs. To ensure you get value for money, we consult our in-house data for the latest market information, so we can compare Clubs and Insurers on past performance, service and anticipate trends.
