Pioneer Underwriters

We are a dynamic underwriting agency, providing unrivalled coverage through our Lloyd’s Syndicate and in the MGA/MGU arena. We take a flexible, collaborative approach to underwriting, working with the broker to meet their client’s needs. This approach has allowed us to rapidly expand our business and we now have twenty-three underwriting teams across nine international locations.

At Pioneer, we do things differently. It’s in our DNA to be fearless. We encourage entrepreneurialism, share rewards and challenge the status quo. We operate Pioneer Syndicate 1980 which launched on 1 January 2018 with gross premium income of £278m underwriting a broad cross-section of business including Property, Casualty, Marine and Energy. Across the Group we manage £350m in premiums and have TOBAs with over 150 London and overseas brokers and nationwide distribution capability across the US.

Our businesses are individually backed by A- or better rated carriers and follow the Pioneer Underwriting ethos of tailored solutions backed by excellent customer service. True Pioneers.
