London, 03 April 2023 – Spring, the specialist financial and commercial lines MGA, continues its drive for growth with the launch of a new Commercial Professional Indemnity (PI) binder for businesses in the UK and Europe. The London and Dublin offices will support the new offering, which is backed by both existing and new capacity providers.

The new binder will be supported by existing capacity providers Ascot and Aspen, as well as new provider Faraday. With the newly formed Casper Specialty also providing capacity for UK risks.

The binder offers £5m/€6.5m of primary capacity, focusing on the technology, media, marketing and miscellaneous sectors in both the UK and Europe and also traditional professions in the UK.
