US Casualty

In a strong and fast-moving E&S market, we stand out for having the consistency, customer service and critical thinking needed to handle complex surplus lines accounts.


Construction and energy companies are exposed to difficult risks that can be hard to place. We work with wholesale brokers to provide third-party bodily injury and property damage coverages (primary, general liability and excess) that allow them to fulfil the terms of their contracts.

Our goal isn’t to be the premier US underwriter for E&S. It’s to be a valuable resource for our wholesalers and insured parties, so we can operate in the market for a long time. We achieve this through our specialist underwriting knowledge, relationship-first approach and ability to handle complex accounts – all backed by the Convex name.

Andrew Fieker

Head of Casualty

I’ve worked in excess and surplus lines insurance for around 20 years, moving through the ranks at a small independent firm then at Crum & Forster, Hallmark Financial Services, and Core Specialty. The shop-floor experience this has given me means I can bring new ideas and strategies to Convex. I didn’t have any connections here before I joined but the culture, along with the support of Convex Group, made it a special opportunity.

There’s a strong focus on customer service, as well as speed and efficiency in how we review and quote our business. We’re humble and eager to learn, with the knowledge and flexibility to adapt to more challenging risks. And we’re focused on using technology to make it both easy and enjoyable to do business with us.

Who we do business with

We work with wholesale brokers across the US to provide excess and surplus lines coverage for construction and energy companies. Within construction, the insured parties can include artisan and trade contractors, roofers, plumbers and dry wallers. In the energy sector, it’s companies in oil, gas and renewables.

Brokers choose us for our A rating from AM Best and the consistency of the product we’re developing. They also value the speed of our customer service; a quick “yes” or “no” is always better than a drawn-out “maybe”. In terms of our appetite, we offer primary coverage with limits of $1m-$2m (both occurrence and general aggregate) and excess coverage of up to $5m.

How we work

Our team is small but seasoned and knowledgeable, with extensive wholesale broker relationships. We also work closely with our colleagues at Convex UK. This combination allows us to provide our brokers with an executive-level underwriting approach as well as swift resolution of Underwriting decisions.

We put our relationships first, whether they’re new or long-standing. We meet our brokers in person where we can, at conferences, events, and one-to-one meetings. We communicate with them weekly or daily to provide the service they need. A typical week sees us prioritising incoming accounts to find the best opportunities to quote. We’ll also do some housekeeping, processing, and work with digital team to develop new and innovative ways to access our products.
