From its humble beginnings in 2011, Edge has become renowned for pushing the boundaries of coverage, benefits, service, appetite and value.

 

They have successfully delivered on their goal to bring coverage and service usually available only in the large corporate space to small commercial, large commercial and small corporate clients. They continue to innovate proving many market firsts and best-in-class coverage. They are committed to giving brokers the Edge – they won’t deal direct.

Spend a few minutes with David Jones, Managing Director and co-owner of Edge Underwriting and you will experience his great passion and his love for insurance and what it can do for those in their time of need. He has technical knowledge second to none.

 

He has a deep respect for insurance brokers, the role they play and the challenges they face – he’s been one.

 

He loathes the stale products, lack of urgency and the ‘computer says no’ attitude that has become the norm for many. He’s held national roles with global insurers who ‘just don’t get it’.

 

In setting up Edge, David was determined to surround himself with the best people. There’s 60+ years of collective experience in the underwriting team alone. Developing best-in-class products through arguably the best security (Lloyd’s) was seen as key.

 

Finding solutions where others find reasons to say no, finding reasons to pay claims and only dealing through brokers remains central to his service ethic.

 

David is relentless in his pursuit to evaluate and innovate, do it better, do it quicker, and he loves having skin in the game. In his own words “Underwriting at its best, underwriting as it should be….welcome to the edge of underwriting”.
