Caribbean CatastropheVisit Aura Underwriting
The Caribbean can be a region highly exposed to natural catastrophe risk, and so requires specialist underwriters with a detailed knowledge of the class to produce products that cover this risk. Through our specialist division, Aura, we have recruited such a team. Aura is now Lloyd’s leading Caribbean property facility, focusing on (re)insurance solutions for the placement of niche, high quality risks throughout the Caribbean. With a 20+ year book of business we can offer competitive premiums and 100% line supported stamps, outperforming most of the open and local market.
Our portfolio managers have a wealth of experience in their niche line of business and combine this with a dedication to helping our broker partners win and retain more business.

Tom previously worked at DUAL International, where he developed his career across all aspects of the underwriting chain.
When he isn’t working for Aura Underwriting, you’d probably find Tom out on a long walk with his beloved springer spaniel or doing some other sporting activity to compensate for being a big foodie.
