Insurance Options
On what basis can I write Insurance?
Four main ways to write international business
 Admitted – Policy is issued locally from a locally registered and based company
 Cross Border Agreements – e.g. Freedom of Services
 Fronting – Local office used and reinsured out
 Non Admitted – Unauthorised Insurer

What is Non Admitted?
What is meant by non admitted?
Definition. Non-admitted insurance refers to the placing of insurance outside the regulatory system of the
country in which the risk is located. A non-admitted insurance policy is one that may be issued abroad or
the risk(s) may be included in a global master policy by an insurer unauthorised in that country. An
authorised insurer is one which is permitted to do business in a country (or region) by the local supervisory
authority.
