Insuring space risks since 1998

We are one of the few companies able to insure a satellite from launch to orbit, through to the end of its commercial life.

Our international space insurance underwriting team has a wealth of experience in spacecraft, rocket engineering, insurance and risk modelling with clients including satellite operators, satellite manufacturers, launch service providers and TV broadcasting companies.

Getting close to clients and brokers

Our close relationship with the space industry and satellite operators gives us a deep insight into business and technological evolutions.

Over the years we have also developed an excellent relationship with the space broking community; a relationship enhanced by our unique positioning in Paris and London.

Bringing clarity to complex policy wordings

We have always insisted on clarity in policy wordings in order to avoid ambiguities when a claim arises, while our technical expertise enables us to quickly quantify the impacts of any failure.
