Canopius is a global specialty lines (re)insurer.

We believe our people’s individuality, their critical thinking, their market insights, and ultimately their independent view of risks makes us different.

Where we get this right, it results in close collaborations, in-depth insights and innovative, fairer risk solutions.

Simply, when we work together, we do better business and we flourish as people.

Our way of working together –
  • Relationships
  • Responsiveness
  • Dialogue
  • Expertise

Building lasting relationships

We believe in building lasting relationships with our clients through meaningful engagement. We also encourage a style of leadership which helps people feel safe, supported and able to flourish.

“I want to work with people I enjoy working with.”

Being available to respond to our clients

We are available to respond to our clients by encouraging our teams to be flexible, challenge bureaucracy and allow them the freedom to make things happen.

“I can’t always find an underwriter when I most need them.”

Individual interaction and thoughtful dialogue

Managing complex risk often requires individual interaction and thoughtful dialogue. Our people are empowered to think expansively, to discuss, offer alternatives and find solutions.

“The more complex the risk, the more important the need for face-to-face dialogue.”

Encouraging fresh thinking and curiosity

Our products and services are created by experts with significant experience in the markets which they serve. We encourage intellectual curiosity and fresh thinking.

“Complicated contracts still need people.”
