First Underwriting Launches New Motorsport Brand

First Underwriting Ltd, the specialist insurance MGA, has launched Slipstream Underwriting, a new motorsport insurance brand.  A  highly experienced motorsport team has joined First Underwriting, and by combining their proven experience in motorsport with their in-depth knowledge of insurance, they have created a ‘suite of motorsport specific products, created by motorsport people’.

Slipstream Underwriting will be providing an extensive range of motor, commercial combined and property products that are fully attuned to the needs of motorsport participants, teams and businesses.  Working closely with the needs of our specialist partners, Slipstream will offer expert insight and knowledge, help motorsport brokers fulfil the needs of their clients and offer bespoke solutions for those difficult to place risks.

Mark Taylor, Managing Director of Slipstream Underwriting, explains: “For over 30 years my passion has been motorsport, and by creating Slipstream Underwriting, we can secure the future for our beloved sport and those businesses and people that work within it.  Our targeted and focused understanding of motorsport, has enabled us to develop ‘fit for purpose’ and enhanced products for motorsport brokers and their customers.  We are very much looking forward to building long and successful relationships with our specialist broking partners.”

Tom Donachie, Managing Director of First Underwriting, said: “We are always looking at how we can improve the products and services that we provide to our broker partners. Slipstream Underwriting has been created because we identified that brokers were wanting an insurance provider who really understands both the motorsport and insurance sector. At First Underwriting, underwriting excellence is in our DNA, and we thrive in niche and specialist areas of insurance, so this was a perfect opportunity for us.  We’re excited to see what Mark and the team achieve with Slipstream Underwriting.”

Through the delivery of great products, superior service and underwriting excellence, First Underwriting has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s leading specialist MGAs.   They have a reputation for underwriting excellence in specialist lines, and outstanding broker service as reflected in the 5* rating given by brokers in the 2022 Insurance Times MGA Broker Survey.  First Underwriting is constantly refining their products to meet and exceed the needs of their brokers, and the Slipstream Underwriting products are the latest new offering, following the launch of their new Real Estate products in 2022.
