Managing Director, Hanseatic Underwriters™

Our Mission

It is our company‘s proven philosophy to offer market-oriented insurance services worldwide, combined with a traditional German approach to business, lean structures and competitive prices.

All management of Hanseatic Underwriters’ insurance consortia is handled in Germany as are all final decisions in claims handling.

Hanseatic Underwriters represents a co-insurance consortium of first-class, A-rated, long-established marine insurers offering fixed premium insurance coverage for Protection & Indemnity as well as for Freight, Demurrage & Defence.

Proven Track History

Since its launch in 2005, the consortium of Hanseatic P&I has become the only major regional, quality-oriented P&I alternative for small and medium sized seagoing feeder and coastal tonnage, river vessels, harbour craft and historic ships.

Aiming for long term business, Hanseatic Underwriters does not only provide high expertise in underwriting but also extensive knowledge of the customer‘s specific requirements, which comes in very handy with the shipping business.

We Think And Speak Shipping

Its headquarters are situated directly in Hamburg port, allowing for a direct view of the transportation market at anytime. Its underwriting and claims team consists of people that have worked in shipping and think accordingly.

What is more, we have a worldwide network of our own correspondents available in every one of the world‘s major ports, which provides a customised claims and troubleshooting service.

The New Quality Brand

Zeller Associates Management Services (ZAM) has operated the specialised insurance management unit of the Zeller Associates Group dedicated to offering outsourcing solutions for underwriting, claims and administration tasks of the marine insurance industry since 1998.

Since 2012 we have been concentrating our marine insurance business under the new umbrella called Hanseatic Underwriters.
