Building on over a decade of experience, we have become a recognized global leader in specialty insurance and reinsurance.

Starting out with assets of £1.2bn, Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited was formed in Bermuda in 2002. Shortly afterwards we launched our UK subsidiary – then known as Wellington Re – and focused initially on property and casualty reinsurance and UK commercial insurance.

A year later, in 2003, we floated on the New York Stock Exchange and we now have offices and subsidiaries in ten countries around the world, trading in a wide spectrum of insurance and reinsurance classes. We have grown our capital base from around $370 million to $3.6 billion and our total assets stood at $12 billion at the end of 2016.

We have won numerous awards and we maintain ratings of A (Strong) from Standard & Poor's, A2 (Good) from Moody's and (A) Excellent from A.M. Best.
