Our Partners

Lloyd’s has been a pioneer in insurance for over 325 years to become the world’s leading market for specialist insurance. Lloyd’s is not a company – it’s a market where members join together as syndicates to insure risks. Lloyd’s syndicates delegate their underwriting authority to Coverholders. As a Coverholder for Lloyd’s, Delta enters into insurance contracts, allowing Lloyd’s syndicates to operate as if they were a local insurer.

Allied World offers diversified insurance and reinsurance products globally. It is headquartered in Switzerland and is owned by Fairfax Financial Holdings. Delta works with Allied World as a capacity partner, and Allied provides additional expertise, broader product and geographical support and financial strength. Delta, as a Coverholder, accesses Allied World capacity via Lloyd’s.
