Benefits & Services

  • We’re the perfect size. Large enough to handle programs for the biggest multinationals. Small enough to access key decision makers and move quickly.
  • We don’t pool premium before we cede it to captives. That means money moves much faster. In days rather than weeks or months.
  • Our global information management and claims systems allow clients to track their programs in real time, anywhere in the world.
  • Our strength and capacity give us the flexibility to tailor cover to suit client needs. We’re not limited to traditional risks: we support captives in building innovative solutions for new and emerging risks, like non-damage business interruption.

Efficient Global Administration

We can issue policies in more than 210 territories and administer all of them consistently through our global network of XL Catlin offices and partners. Our global information management system, Genius, gives clients a real time view of program status. Having one system means we don’t need to merge data from different systems or re-key information manually.

Our award-winning global claims system, XL GlobalClaim, allows clients and brokers to track claims history online wherever they are in the world.

Expert Service

We pride ourselves on our fast, efficient service. We have experts in everything from tax, legal, credit and claims management. We also have a structured financial solutions team that can provide multi-line and multi-year reinsurance for captives.

We can tailor service level agreements to suit each client’s unique needs.
