Joining forces with a like-minded organisation, known to be a committed capacity provider for MGAs, will enable us to channel more than 20 years of underwriting knowledge and insight into further enhancements for the benefit of our housing association clients…”

Rob Gibbs, President & CEO, SiriusPoint International, added: “Pen Underwriting is a new partner for SiriusPoint, although we have long admired and tracked its progress to a high caliber business with underwriting and distribution as its heart. We are looking forward to partnering with the team at Pen as it continues to execute its clear growth strategy, and develop its proposition within the social housing market.
