What's New from UAC Members
What an Assistance Request is, and how to use it.
Brokers, please use the list of specialisations to find one that matches your client’s risk. You can then select from the list of agencies that write that product those to which you want to email details of your risk.
If your risk category is not listed here, use this assistance request form to notify UAC.
Provide full details of the risk and your contact details. UAC will post it to the site for members to review and they can contact you if they may be able to assist. Posts will be moderated first. They will remain active for 60 days.
About UAC Membership
Membership is open to underwriters, non-voting business service partners, and affiliate partners.
Underwriting agencies manage insurance transactions on behalf of their principal insurers, which are based in Australia and overseas. Many agencies’ security is from Lloyd’s of London.
Agencies generally operate in specialist, niche markets, offering an array of insurance products that may not be available from other providers.
The agency sector’s annual gross written premium is estimated at more than $2.5 billion and agencies employ about 1,800 people.
The vast majority of business is transacted via insurance brokers.
