Altamont Contingency Underwriting

ALTAMONT has been created for one purpose; to provide insurance brokers in Australia and New Zealand with unrivalled contingency insurance products and service.

ALTAMONT was born out of Beazley Group’s Australian service company first established in Brisbane in 2010, Beazley Underwriting. In 2018, after building a strong reputation as the local experts in contingency insurance, Beazley agreed to transfer the Beazley Underwriting contingency business to their lead underwriter Nic Jobling, who created Altamont Contingency Underwriting in partnership with High Street Underwriting, a Lloyd’s Coverholder also based in Brisbane.

ALTAMONT maintains a very close working relationship with Beazley, who remain the primary insurer providing security to Altamont. Beazley is a specialist insurer with three decades of experience in providing clients with the highest standards of underwriting and claims service worldwide, and is a global market leader in contingency insurance for the sports, leisure, entertainment, conference, exhibition and trade show industries. All of Beazley’s insurance businesses are rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best.
