In addition to the personal service that we offer, we are also the only Members agent with direct access to HI PCC. Formed in 2004 HI PCC Ltd is a protected cell company based in Guernsey and has been developing products to help those investing at Lloyd’s to manage the underwriting cycle.
HI PCC has the ability to develop products for individual members that would normally only be available to large insurers or reinsurers. HI PCC has developed nine different products over the years and as a minor shareholder, Hampden Agencies is able to assist HI PCC in the development of these.
Most products from HI PCC are exclusive to Hampden’s Members, but, where appropriate, they are offered to all Lloyd’s individual Members, such as personal stop loss reinsurance and reinsurance protecting Member’s participations on the nuclear Syndicate 1176. To this day, HI PCC continues to develop specific niche products in cooperation with Hampden Agencies.
