About New India Assurance

New India has a long-term presence in the UK market dating back to 1920. Today we operate out of offices in London, (including our box at Lloyd’s) and Ipswich.

The London office writes Property Reinsurance worldwide on both a Facultative and Direct basis as well as participating in Property Treaty business.

From our Ipswich office we underwrite a range of Commercial Insurance products designed to meet the specific needs of small to medium businesses. In addition, we also write Retail Insurance business (Motor and Home Insurance) through a number of selected partners.
