Marine

The world of Marine insurance is a mysterious place to the uninitiated. It has all kinds of strange terminology and a language of its own, that can confuse even the most diligent of Risk or Captive managers.

The temptation to include marine exposure into property programs as a result is sometimes overwhelming. This inclusion can have significant unforeseen consequences, with, for example, such requirements as General Average, Salvage Charges payable in full or the ability to issue General average guarantees and other quirks lost in the melee.

 

United Marine Assistance

United Marine assists its clients getting though this maze, and also assists in putting together programs which will truly reflect the real exposures faced by the captive or risk manager. United will explain the terms where needed, and assist in putting together proper programmes.

The United marine programme was created in the mid-seventies as a facility to provide capacity to captives. Many of today’s reinsureds have been clients since that time.

Structure

Most programmes tend to have a recognized marine insurance provider issuing a policy of insurance to the parent organization (insured). The captive provides reinsurance to the issuing carrier and in turn purchases Quota Share or Layered reinsurance from United (and commercial markets). Those programmes with a significant retention can expect to receive a substantial credit on their excess of loss pricing.
