We aren’t just another insurance company

We partner with our technical risk clients to support their risk management objectives, providing bespoke insurance and technical solutions to complex risks.

Technical risks require expertise
As Canada’s Equipment Breakdown leader since 1875, we have the data, knowledge, experience, and technical talent to understand, underwrite, and insure equipment-intensive, high hazard risks.
Significant exposures require precise, stable underwriting
We combine bespoke wordings and solutions with a stable underwriting philosophy, to provide clients with reliable coverage and peace of mind. Our policies meet the specialized needs of our clients. They are designed to be issued as either stand-alone or in partnership with other property insurers.
We understand evolving risks
We view our role as not just another insurance company, but as a partner in risk management, working with our clients to assist in minimizing risk in any industrial situation.
We meet challenges holistically
We meet challenges holistically, with global capabilities and local solutions. Together with our HSB Group partners and Munich Re, our engineering and inspection force is one of the largest in the world, with over 1,200 engineers, inspectors and technical personnel around the globe.

Today's industrial world is a complex, equipment intensive, high hazard, technology driven, ever-changing environment.

We manage risk, evolve with you, meet your changing needs, and deliver exceptional, reliable coverage.
