Talbot Underwriting Ltd

Talbot has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Validus Holdings, Ltd. since July 2007.

We operate in the Lloyd’s Insurance Market through Syndicate 1183 and have current Financial Strength Ratings of Standard & Poor’s A+, A.M. Best A and Fitch AA-.

With an expert team of highly skilled and experienced underwriters and a balanced, geographically diverse portfolio of business, we have earned a reputation as an industry leading insurance and reinsurance specialist.

We write primarily short-tail lines of business, but as a complement to Validus Re, focus mostly on insurance, as opposed to reinsurance risks and on specialty lines where they currently has limited or no presence.

In addition, we provide Validus Re with access to the Lloyd’s marketplace where they do not operate. As a London-based insurer, Talbot also writes the majority of its premiums on risks outside the United States.
