A different collaborative approach to underwriting

Insurance solutions for niche, data-driven specialty risk portfolios, backed by strong and stable A rated capacity.

What we do

Innovative solutions for specialty risk portfolios

ARTes offers a platform to brokers and carriers to help develop innovative specialty insurance solutions that may be difficult to insure.

We have a strong go-to-market team that assists companies in finding coverage for challenging areas such as specialty, niche markets, or new concepts.

Specialty insurance

A platform where insurance capacity meets with specialty insurance

ARTes specialise in creating custom insurance products that fit the specific needs of our clients.

We straddle the line between an insurer and a broker, and we believe we offer more than your average MGA. Our goal is to identify risk opportunities that outperform the competition.



Value Added for Capacity Providers

ARTes offer their Capacity Provider partners access to niche global market opportunities that are unlikely to have been presented to them through the usual market channels.

Any portfolio will be presented with detailed, analysed historic data that supports projected performance, along with the specific underwriting strategy that we tailor to each of our individual clients; this will demonstrate equitable return on capacity across the underwriting cycle.

Partnerships with Brokers

ARTes provide their distribution partners with strategic solutions to protect their unique portfolios of business. We are able to do this through exclusive access to Capacity Providers who combine and enhance products to offer a unique selling point.

For each new portfolio, we design and implement a bespoke underwriting IT platform, which empowers ARTes and their distribution partners to market and administrate their products efficiently, and accurately whilst maintaining data integrity.

Senior Management


We aim to return to the basics of being an MGA, and are excited to bring this vision to life. As a result, we had to rethink our approach to underwriting and managing risk in today’s market.
