Cargo and Specie Insurance s1861

The 1861 Cargo & Specie team has over 40 years combined experience underwriting Fine Art, Specie and Cargo. Whilst our Underwriters have a wide knowledge of the market, each is recognised for their own specialist field.

AmTrust adopts a disciplined risk selection approach to align ourselves with insureds who demonstrate strong risk awareness and management. We develop longstanding relationships with our clients and brokers through strong communication and by providing the highest levels of service with quick, flexible and consistent decisions.

We write a balanced portfolio of core and specialty products. From this foundation, AmTrust works constantly on developing new solutions to ensure we can respond to our clients' evolving needs.
