Pen Underwriting strikes motor capacity deal with Zurich


London-based managing general agent (MGA) Pen Underwriting has entered into a new motor capacity deal with Zurich Insurance.
Under the agreement, Zurich will provide capacity for up to £150 million in premiums over the next five years for Pen’s hazardous goods and environmental motor fleet solution — formerly branded as OAMPS — which is tailored to the specific needs of different segments of the high hazard transportation and distribution sector, such as fuels, chemicals and liquid waste as well as non-hazardous tanker operators.
Adam Shefras, managing director of hazardous goods and environmental industries at Pen Underwriting, said: "We’re delighted to have secured a long-term commitment from Zurich to continue supporting our specialist fleet insurance solutions for this highly specialist market.
"Our partnership with Zurich ensures we can continue offering brokers superior cover as standard, to meet the unique risks and challenges presented by the transportation of hazardous goods."
