Keeping your capital options open

Although we write business on a primary and excess basis, a key benefit of our scale and size, is that in many circumstances we can insure up to 100% of your risk. This means that you only have to deal with one company for new business, renewals and claims.

We understand that some clients like to write business through Lloyd’s, while others prefer to deal exclusively with MS Amlin. So rather than restricting you to just one option, we offer three different routes to market:

  1. We can manage all of your Marine risks through Lloyd’s, MS AUL where we have a significant presence in the Marine market.
  2. We can manage all of your Marine risks through Amlin Insurance SE using our own capital.
  3. We can manage some of the risk through third party capital and/or a combination of the above options.

These options are designed to give you more flexibility when setting up your insurance. They put you in complete control of your capital and are particularly useful when it comes to high-value or complex risks.

Giving you confidence in our financial strength

Our underwriting subsidiaries are highly rated for their financial strength. We also benefit from the exceptionally high ratings of the MS&AD Group, as well as being part of the Lloyd’s of London Chain of Security.

Since January 2023 MS Amlin Insurance SE and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company Limited (MSI) have jointly acquired the shares of Amlin Netherlands Holding (ANH). ANH, which includes MS Amlin Marine NV as a fully owned subsidiary, is now jointly owned by MS AISE (90%) and MSI (10%).
