Positive Culture

We firmly believe that it is our people and culture that sets Canopius apart from other insurance companies. Canopius is made up of some of the best and brightest professionals in the industry, and we want to create the right environment to continue to foster that talent. Our culture is a safe and inclusive one, where we respect and trust one another in an authentic and collegiate environment. We encourage an entrepreneurial spirit and empower each other to take risks. Safe and inclusive also means a zero tolerance for bullying and harassment and the dedication to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

Approach to Work

We want to create a stimulating office environment with Activity-Based Working at its core, which we see as the physical manifestation of our guiding principle of managing by outcomes, not presenteeism. Also, we recognise that recent events have had a profound impact on ways of working, so we will ensure that while our office continues to be our primary location, Canopius is technologically enabled to work from anywhere. We are committed to offering our employees a flexible, modern working space and we will be moving to our new home at 22 Bishopsgate in 2021, on budget.

governance icon


Good governance is good business because it makes our business better. Our governance framework will always serve the needs of the business first and foremost, and we will manage the scale and complexity of our operations in a way that reflects the nature of our ownership. We are committed to regulatory stewardship which is highly regarded by regulators. Internally, we continue to manage a risk management function that contributes meaningful business insights, and that we are able to provide independent quality assurance through an engaged internal audit function.
