Devonshire Underwriting makes market debut

Devonshire UW Limited and Devonshire UW Europe GmbH, collectively known as Devonshire Underwriting, has announced their market debut.

Led by a quartet of founders and partners—Natasha Attray, James Dodd, James Fletcher, and Charles Turnham—Devonshire Underwriting brings to the table a wealth of experience and expertise in TR solutions, spanning over three decades.

“Devonshire Underwriting aims to carve a niche in the TR insurance market by offering innovative, sophisticated solutions,” commented Natasha Attray, partner at Devonshire. Their approach is grounded in a profound understanding of legal risk dynamics, backed by Lloyd’s and a panel of top-rated insurance capacity providers.

“We’re not just here to compete; we’re here to lead,” asserts James Dodd, another partner at Devonshire. “Our goal is to become the go-to TR underwriter, renowned for our deep expertise, impeccable execution, and strategic partnerships.”

Indeed, Devonshire has already garnered the support of B.P. Marsh & Partners PLC, a prominent private equity investor known for nurturing early-stage financial services ventures. Dan Topping, chief investment officer at B.P. Marsh, expressed confidence in Devonshire’s potential: “We’re excited to partner with Devonshire, leveraging their expertise and our resources to fuel their growth trajectory.”

The launch of Devonshire Underwriting comes at a pivotal moment in the TR market, marked by a surge in M&A activity and a growing appetite for TR products. “There’s a palpable momentum in the TR space,” notes James Fletcher, partner at Devonshire. “Clients are seeking tailored solutions, and we’re here to deliver.”

Central to Devonshire’s strategy is agility—a trait they believe will set them apart in a rapidly evolving market. “We understand the need for speed,” emphasises Charles Turnham, partner at Devonshire. “In the TR realm, decisions need to be swift and outcomes positive. That’s where we excel.”

As Devonshire Underwriting sets sail, backed by a blend of experience, innovation, and strategic alliances, the stage is set for a shift in the TR insurance landscape.
