Our Brexit Approach

Following Britain's exit from the EU, our European clients can access the benefits of Chaucer's expertise, products and security through, our insurance company in Dublin, or Lloyd’s Brussels.

Chaucer Insurance Company

We write business through our Irish domiciled insurance company, Chaucer Insurance Company DAC, whose international specialty product range mirrors that of Chaucer Syndicate 1084 in London, enabling us to provide either syndicate or company paper, depending on client preferences. Chaucer Insurance Company has a UK branch to provide access to specialty underwriting expertise in London.

Chaucer Insurance Company benefits from the full support of China Re, our new parent company, and has an A- financial strength rating from Standard & Poor’s and A from AM Best. 

Lloyd’s Brussels

From 1 January 2019, Chaucer Syndicate 1084 began underwriting business through Lloyd's Insurance Company S.A., based in Brussels.  Lloyd’s Brussels has licenses in all 30 European Economic Area states, and has the same strong financial ratings as Lloyd's; A from A.M. Best, A+ from Standard & Poor's and AA- from Fitch. Risks are reinsured into Chaucer Syndicate 1084, meaning that clients continue to benefit from the Lloyd's chain of security.

Lloyd’s is proposing to transfer certain EEA insurance policies to Lloyd’s Brussels. The proposed transfer will not change terms and conditions of any policy, except that Lloyd’s Brussels will become the insurer and Data Controller in respect of the transferred policies.  Further information about the proposal (including whether it could affect your pre-transfer position), which policies are transferring, your rights and what you need to do can be found here.

If you have any questions, including questions relating to particular classes of business, please ask your usual underwriting contact or email enquiries@chaucerplc.com
