New Q Underwriting Property Owners solution Q Protect goes live


Authored by Q Underwriting

We are very excited that our new Property Owners solution is live. The product is underwritten by Q Protect, our specialist Property & Package underwriting team, and is backed by A rated capacity in ERGO UK Speciality, a Munich Re company.

Q Protect Property Owners is designed for larger Commercial, Residential and Unoccupied risks, generally with premiums over £1000, which can demonstrate good housekeeping and management.

With an underwriter-led approach to each and every risk, there is some appetite for higher hazard business from supportive brokers including unoccupied, takeaways, food, textile and wood manufacturing risks; hotels (rural and timber-floored), student and other non-standard let-types.

Q Protect is led by Q Underwriting’s Head of Underwriting Operations for Property & Package, Duncan Scott, and Operations Manager Joanne Holroyd. And the underwriting team features Teresa Cooke and David Bustillo as lead underwriters and they are supported by an empowered and dedicated team.

Everyone in Q Protect is keen to talk to insurance brokers with Property Owners opportunities, so get in touch today.

Speak to the underwriting team on 0330 058 9862 and send quotation requests to or submit your enquiry through Qtrade, where it will be passed onto an underwriter.

We look forward to introducing the team in more detail soon; keep an eye out!
