K2 International is the London Market underwriting arm of US based K2 Insurance Services. With a diverse spread of businesses in the group we are well-supported, well-connected, well-regulated and well-run with a proven track-record.
K2 International is built on a talent-first basis. That means that we don’t seek to enter any particular class of business, but rather we seek out, and bring on board the best talent and then provide them with the right support.
Being part of K2 Insurance Services not only gives us stability, but it also offers our teams the freedom to use their experience to the full. The culture of empowering independence means our teams regularly outperform the best-known MGAs.
We value long-lasting, authentic corporate partnerships with our capacity providers, brokers and clients.
We value new ideas that lead to practical ways of improving or transforming our products, systems, and processes.
We value connecting with people from carriers to brokers to (re)insureds, with open communication that is serious, productive and fun.
We value doing the right thing across all our relationships, conducting our business honestly and transparently.
We value working resourcefully and skilfully to build a business that provides long-term growth for all our partners.
The experience of building a successful US franchise over the past 9 years and the quality of the K2 International offering, gives me confidence about our future.
We aim to provide clients with creative underwriting products and a first-class service, and our partnership with K2 Financial will deliver this. We are confident in the quality of their underwriting process and their commitment to the market and are pleased to be able to support them.
Since 2011 K2 Insurance Services has been acquiring, developing and growing profitable insurance businesses. Having established a core group of specialty insurers and MGA/MGUs in the US, we are now also building our business in the UK through K2 International.
Our financial strength and operational rigour gives our business the freedom to innovate and focus on its areas of expertise. With leading business across many specialties, our goal is to reach the very top of the (re)insurance market globally.
In May 2019, Lee Equity Partners, a New York based middle market private equity firm, acquired a majority interest in K2 Insurance Services, with the objective to create a leading underwriting and distribution franchise in the programme insurance market.
Our capacity providers offer first class security and are leading (re)insurers in the global market. Here’s a flavour of the power behind us.
