Andrew Simpson Sailing Trading Limited partners with the UK’s largest insurance broker* to launch an exclusive Personal Accident and Travel insurance policy to its supporters.

Andrew Simpson Sailing Trading Limited has entered into an exclusive relationship with Aon UK Limited, the UK’s largest Insurance broker*, to launch a sailing and water sports specific personal accident and travel insurance policy to its supporters. Aon UK Limited has worked with Argo Global (‘Argo’), a Lloyd’s insurer and member of Argo Group, to develop a tailored product that caters for professional and commercial sailing crews, as well as other relevant persons including boat designers and land crews.

Andrew Simpson Sailing Trading Limited (ASSTL) will act as Introducer Appointed Representative of Aon UK Limited, to promote this new product and other water sports related insurance covers in the future.

In its continuing support of the work of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, Aon Benfield has pledged to donate a percentage of the fee the firm receives for each new policyholder introduced to it by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Trading Limited. This will help to enable the Foundation to continue supporting not for profit sailing organisations across the globe and continue to inspire the next generation.

All monies received by ASSTL from the sale of insurance products will be given to the ASSF to be used to fund worldwide sailing causes in line with the Foundations objectives.

Ben Nicholls, a Senior Broker at Aon Benfield, commented: “Water sports are tremendous fun, but accidents can unfortunately happen. Off-the-shelf insurance covers often seek to exclude hazardous occupancies, we are thrilled to be able to help the ASSF’s supporters obtain access to the Argo Group’s bespoke cover for those working or participating in water sports. ASSTL will introduce individuals, crew, teams and companies to Aon UK Ltd for us to obtain specialist cover from the Argo Syndicate at Lloyd’s.”

Emma Syrett, a Broker from Aon Benfield added: “Whilst this product is perhaps more suited to the professional, owner or company, we are also working on plans to offer additional types of insurance cover to the sizeable network of ASSF supporters across the globe.”

Insurance Cover Overview:
Our insurance partners offer to the water sports community products for Crews/Groups (of all types, professional, corporate and recreational) and for Professional and Elite individuals (frequent and certified water sports participants). As agreed by the Argo underwriters.
