Marine

Today’s marine risks are complex and challenging, and the Liberty Marine team has the skills to proactively determine these risks and assure clients of appropriate insurance coverage. Our underwriters boast longstanding marine connections, which gives them the confidence to underwrite hard-to-place risks, as well as standard exposures; our risk engineers’ technical excellence is highly regarded in Asia Pacific; and the claims team includes staff with marine surveyor qualifications.

Relationships matter to Liberty Marine: our claims people meet clients upfront, with the underwriters, not just after a claim, meaning that trust and peace of mind are part of the deal from the outset.
