Headquartered in the heart of the London Market, the Nexus Group was founded in 2008 with the aim of becoming a leading, independent, international, specialty managing general agent (MGA). Driven by talent and innovation, Nexus is now a global business represented in nine countries, employing over 290 people and handling over £320 million in gross written premium.
Our unmitigated focus on service and profitable underwriting underpin our strategy and growth. We support this with investment in proven platforms that facilitate efficient online quoting and we develop intelligent, bespoke insurance products together with our highly respected underwriting partners.
From Financial Lines to Trade Credit, Accident & Health to Surety, Travel to Latent Defect, Marine to Aviation, our perceptive and talented underwriting teams have expert knowledge in their specialty classes.
We understand that we must add exceptional value for policyholders, brokers and insurers. We are always hungry to learn and adapt to market demand. Perceptive underwriting is key. All of this has enabled us to grow impressively through strong organic growth that has been further supported by a number of significant acquisitions, each bringing new talent and expertise to our team, developing our business to become a modern, successful and independent leader.
