About Us

Berkley Insurance Australia is the professional alternative

As a general insurer Berkley Insurance Australia has a significant portfolio of business in Australia. We are fully authorised and regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority (APRA) which is the prudential regulator of the Australian financial services industry. 

Berkley Insurance Australia is part of a global insurance model which is founded on three essential principles:

  • expert local underwriting;
  • fair and fast claims handling; and
  • financial strength.

Our brokers and policyholders expect to be treated as individuals by an insurer who understands their specialist business risk exposures and provides solutions to both underwriting and claims.

We are part of the W. R. Berkley group of companies, headed by W. R. Berkley Corporation, which has over US$20.5 billion in assets.
