It’s about the financial strength of our capacity providers
DUAL provides clients with local professional assistance backed by significant central resource. We also partner with clients and brokers to offer support and advice on such matters as legal and claims development and loss prevention. None of our clients are the same. DUAL works to understand the particular needs of your business to ensure you stand on your own two feet.
What sets us apart?
DUAL derives strength from its association with Lloyd's of London. DUAL New Zealand underwrites exclusively on behalf of certain Underwriters at Lloyd's. Since the late seventeenth century, the name Lloyd’s has been synonymous with insurance and many of the world’s leading underwriters are based at Lloyd’s. Lloyd’s is a member of the Insurance Council of New Zealand and its New Zealand coverholders adhere to the Fair Insurance Code, which provides you with assurance that we have high standards of service to our customers.
Lloyd's has strong financial security with the following Financial Strength Ratings: A (Excellent) A.M Best, A+ (Strong) Standard and Poors and AA- (Very Strong) Fitch.
Our parent company, The DUAL Group is the specialist underwriting arm of the Howden Group, and is focused on underwriting business critical risks. DUAL has become a well-established and respected leading underwriter with annual gross written premiums of over $700 million employing 600 people in offices across Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
