History

We have offered specialty reinsurance including trade credit coverage since 2002 and began writing surety reinsurance from our U.S. platform in 2005 and from our Zurich operation in 2012. We serve global markets from offices in the U.S., U.K, Bermuda, Switzerland and Singapore and are expanding our presence in key markets as part of Sompo.

Highlights in 2016 / 2017

In March 2017, we marked a very significant and historic milestone with Sompo’s completion of its acquisition of Endurance. Almost immediately, we rebranded Endurance as Sompo International, which encompasses the overseas commercial insurance and reinsurance operations of Sompo.
