Coverholders and delegated underwriting

The Channel Syndicate also underwrites through coverholders and delegated underwriting arrangements across all of our classes of business.

Delegated underwriting arrangements are contracts between Channel and a Coverholder, whereby Channel delegates its underwriting authority to the coverholder to underwrite on its behalf. All coverholders must be approved by Lloyd’s.

Coverholders at Lloyd’s

Lloyd’s is the world’s specialist insurance market whose members provide insurance services to businesses in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Lloyd’s is the strongest brand in the global insurance market and coverholders can benefit from Lloyd’s brand and reputation by becoming a Lloyd’s approved coverholder sponsored by Channel. Coverholders are an important distribution channel for Lloyd’s: over 30% of Lloyd’s income is written through binding authorities held by more than 3,000 coverholders worldwide.

The Channel approach

Channel's underwriters are specialists in writing binding authority business. We forge strong relationships with our coverholders, and work in partnership to develop the business. Channel enjoys long-term relationships with over 150 coverholders and delegated authorities represent more than 30% of Channel’s business across all classes and geographies. Channel has an experienced team in place for managing its DUA portfolio with expert knowledge of binding authorities, TPAs, lineslips, consortia and master policies.
