What does this mean for our brokers?

We will still be writing the same business that we have been i.e.

  • General liability
  • Contractors’ liability
  • Contractors’ all risks (CAR)

As well as general liability, we are now able to underwrite contractors liability and CAR risks, up to a premium of £10,000, and issue documentation without referral to insurers. This will significantly improve our service standards to our brokers.

“We have been delighted in the ability of everyone at Yutree to provide solutions for our construction clients. They are always keen to find a way to deal with difficult cover issues and are always happy to pick up the phone and discuss the details which matter to us as a broker. If only everyone in the market could offer the same!”
