Sunderland Marine and the North Group
Established in 1882 in Sunderland, we’re now based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne following the 2014 merger with global marine mutual insurer North P&I. The merger formed the North Group, which now underwrites our Owners’ Fixed Premium, Fishing, Coastal and other Specialist Vessels Insurance and Aquaculture products under the Sunderland Marine brand name.
North P&I is authorised by the UK’s Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. North has offices and subsidiaries in Australia and New Zealand, Hong Kong and Shanghai, Greece, Ireland, Japan, Singapore, and USA, and has a S&P Global ‘A’ rating.
North P&I and Sunderland Marine’s business in the EEA is underwritten by North of England P&I Designated Activity Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of North incorporated in Ireland and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
