We have built relationships with forward-looking underwriters in the War Risk market to help you obtain competitive and comprehensive cover for your high-risk area transits. This winning combination will ensure shipowners are provided with the best actionable risk intelligence, which in turn allows for competitive premiums rather than a ‘one-cost-fits-all’.

War risk is not generally not readily understood by actuarial risk models - and with true exposure to losses shifting with the tides of geo-politics, criminal activity, and economic forces; you need constant, expert oversight and understanding. Our partners are plugged into Dryad Global and understand this risk – enabling a better product for you.

Place war risk separately to Hull and Machinery cover 

The days of getting the best deals in bundles have passed- with H&M rates climbing (irrespective of whether you combine war risks) the best deals for war risks can be found with a specialist provider.

Peace of mind for owners

Owners can rest assured that cover operates back-to-back with the existing H&M as the War clauses are automatically amended to match or follow the basis of the H&M conditions such as ITCH, Nordic Plan, American Institute clauses etc.

Policies can be tailored to fit your individual needs!

We only work with A-rated markets 

By working only with the best underwriters who depend on their reputation, you can rest assured that any claim will be handled efficiently, professionally and with a customer-first approach.  

Benefit like the large war risk pools

Most large war risk pools are re-insured into the London markets where our providers sit.

Better, Faster

Our underwriters will tailor the additional premiums (AP) to benefit the client with a better structure and competitive premiums and provide added value through Dryad's deep risk understanding.  This is achievable because they have confidence in the independent risk assessment to tailor their premiums for your gain.

We understand that decisions need to be made fast so we will provide a risk assessment that enables the underwriters quantify the risk according to the specifics of your vessel and route. You will also receive a copy of this assessment within 48 hrs of the requests along with your war risk quote.

We know that shipping is not a fixed business and that things change, so when that happens (perhaps destination changes of routing for weather) then we can advise and update you accordingly. A premium service and no additional cost. What’s not to like?
