Our History

Sunderland Marine became part of North Group in 2014 following a merger with global marine mutual North P&I Club, which also has offices and subsidiaries in China (Hong Kong and Shanghai), Greece, Ireland, Japan, Singapore and USA.

The merger created one of the largest marine insurance operations, providing enhanced financial stability, a greater diversity of product lines, continued service excellence and a stronger competitive position. North has an “A” rating from the financial rating agency Standard & Poor’s.
