Liberty Speciality Markets has operated in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) since 2006 through an insurance office in Dubai, providing local brokers and insurance companies with more capacity to meet the growing market place need for specialty insurance products.

Since then, we have rapidly established a presence in this key market and, in 2015, established a new, DFSA regulated Coverholder Company – Liberty Specialty Markets MENA Limited. We take full advantage of the Lloyd’s platform in the region as both an intermediary and Lloyd’s Approved Service Company Coverholder. The move to writing on Lloyd’s paper means we can provide additional specialist product lines which were unavailable previously and which complement our existing Company business.

Our local expertise combined with the strength and financial stability of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Group means we are well equipped to meet the demands of our brokers and clients.

Product lines available:

  • Energy and Construction
  • Financial Institutions
  • Treaties
  • General Liability
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Property
  • War and Terrorism

Liberty Specialty Markets MENA Limited is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority.  Registered office: Unit 408, Floor 4, Gate Village Building 5, DIFC PO Box 506574

Claims

For both brokers and clients, the quality of claims service strongly influences their choice of carrier. The importance of first-class claims handling should never be overlooked. In the event of a loss, the ability to manage a claim effectively becomes critical and is one of the major factors in a broker and client’s choice of insurer.

At Liberty Specialty Markets, we understand the importance of swift and effective claims handling. We have dedicated teams who are committed to working in partnership with brokers and clients to ensure claims are paid fairly and promptly whilst providing the highest level of service.

In order to provide a market-leading claims service, we employ leading claims professionals and continually review our technical and processing claims capability to ensure this position is maintained. This underpins our commitment to provide fast, consistent and efficient claims decision making allowing us to deliver a service that supports our goal “to pay promptly any claim proven to be valid.”​
