Chaucer is a specialist insurance group. We underwrite business at Lloyd’s, the world’s leading
insurance and reinsurance market.
Our vision is to be the Lloyd’s specialist insurer of choice and our goals are to deliver a superior
return on capital and to build enduring value for stakeholders.
We deploy specialist underwriters in all major insurance and reinsurance classes, balancing global
marine, energy, non-marine and aviation with a UK motor business and nuclear insurance.
Our underwriters work hard to position themselves uppermost in the thoughts of brokers and clients
seeking to place or renew business.
We support underwriting with a highly qualified and professional claims team, which has extensive
marine and non-marine claims management experience.
We are also market leaders in turnkey solutions, which provide a practical solution for investors
seeking a Lloyd’s presence but not wishing to have a standalone managing agent.
Headquartered in London, we have international operations in Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Houston
and Singapore to provide access to high quality business worldwide.
