As part of our evolution and strategic long-term planning, The Barn Underwriting Agency Pty Ltd has changed its company name to Market Lane Insurance Group Pty Ltd (Market Lane).

As a result, ‘The Barn Underwriting Agency’ will become a registered trading name / division of Market Lane.

Managing Director, David Porteous, said “Except for a slight name change – nothing changes at The Barn! Our focus remains on Specialty Property and General Liability insurances with no change to our core risk appetite of boutique accommodation, agri-business, food & beverage production, medium to higher hazard manufacturing, security industry and complex property owners to name a few”.

What is Market Lane Insurance Group?

Our mission is to create a world-class diversified insurance underwriting and distribution business. Our strategic focus is to build a community of vertically integrated niche insurance businesses trading under the one banner, with each division being formed with an outstanding team who have developed a brilliant reputation and proven track-record in their chosen lines of business.

The first ‘brand’ operating under Market Lane is ‘The Barn’ and just last week, we were thrilled to launch our latest brand ‘G.O.A.T. Insurance’ – a dedicated underwriting vehicle specifically established to provide commercial property insurance capacity for entities operating in the Sports, Hospitality and Leisure industries. Our next strategic business initiative is just around the corner, so watch this space!
