We are prepared to be innovative in creating new products that reflect the dynamics of the ever-changing insurance and reinsurance markets as well as our clients’ requirements.


An international insurance presence

Through our operating subsidiaries, Validus Group offers a broad range of innovative insurance solutions, with a particular emphasis on short-tail lines of business.

Since acquiring Talbot Holdings Ltd. in 2007, we have successfully expanded our geographic and product line diversification in the short-tail insurance industry. From Europe to Asia to Latin America, our teams of specialist underwriters have the expertise to write niche business in areas as diverse as marine, terrorism, onshore energy, aviation and other specialty lines including property, construction, contingency, accident and health, financial  institutions, bloodstock and livestock.

We leverage the ongoing strategic communication between our underwriting teams to uncover our clients’ additional insurance requirements and ensure they obtain the comprehensive solutions that meet their needs.

In addition, we have the capacity to underwrite all lines of business on a facultative reinsurance basis.

We recently acquired Western World Insurance Group which is among the top excess and surplus lines insurance groups in the United States with nearly fifty years of experience, success and stability.

Offering commercial insurance products on a surplus lines and specialty admitted basis -- with a commitment to wholesale brokers, agents and program managers -- insurance coverages provided include General Liability, Property, Professional Liability, and Commercial Auto. We specialize in underwriting classes of business that are not easily placed in the standard insurance market due to their complexity, high hazard, or unusual nature.
