About us

An underwriting agency based in Dublin with roots in Lloyd's of London, Plum Underwriting focuses on the specialist home insurance market.

We are backed by Brown & Brown Europe, who focus on investing in:

  • Lloyd’s and London market based intermediaries which operate in the global, specialty insurance and reinsurance markets
  • Retail intermediaries operating in the personal, SME and middle markets, including schemes and affinity
  • Managing General Agents/Underwriters providing specialist propositions across all distributions

At Plum Underwriting, we offer specialist home insurance products and do this on an "open market" basis, where a quote is requested from us via our online broker portal, and we underwrite and issue documentation.

Our underwriting capacity is provided by HSB Engineering Insurance Ltd in the ROI, supported by Lloyd’s of London, the world's leading insurance market.

In addition to our status as fully approved Lloyd’s of London coverholder, we can also act as a Lloyd’s broker with access to the wider London market.
