About Nucleus Underwriting:

Nucleus Underwriting is a specialist Managing General Agent underwriting on behalf of Mitsui Sumitomo Syndicate 3210 and Kiln Syndicate 510 at Lloyds.

Target Market

Our focus is UK and European Lifescience businesses.

In a sector where a great deal of attention is on a small number of huge international players it is easy to lose sight of the fact that around 95% of UK Lifescience businesses are SMEs with turnover of less than £50m. Many are significantly below that.

Nucleus Underwriting provides a solution for such businesses in an insurance market which is low on capacity and specialist knowledge.

The Opportunity for Brokers

We want to work with dynamic and forward thinking insurance intermediaries unafraid of the Lifescience sector.

The SME Lifescience sector presents a potentially untapped market for many intermediaries. There is significant sector investment and it provides enormous growth potential.

Nucleus Underwriting can help in guiding intermediaries with little or no sector experience in providing their clients with appropriate and cost effective insurance solutions.

Sector Experience

Underwriting Director, James McHugh, has considerable Lifescience experience, having established and managed for 8 years, the Chubb UK Lifescience account and launched a number of Lifescience products whilst Head of UK Casualty at Catlin.
