Background
For over 100 years, we have focussed on providing the maritime industries with insurance products that offer financial protection and practical assistance when disaster strikes.Assuranceforeningen Gard was founded in 1907 and, while the group retains its Norwegian identity, it has become a global P&I club and since 2004 has offered hull and machinery and loss of hire insurance. Today Gard has 33% of the Nordic marine hull market and 17% market share among the International Group of P&I Clubs.
As the global economic and legislative environment has shifted, so Members and clients have always relied on Gard’s first class financial security to protect them against the risks that concern them, and to compensate them promptly for their losses. We now have an A+ rating from Standard and Poor’s, one of the highest security ratings in the marine market so, when an extreme loss occurs, our Members and clients know we have resources required to stand firmly behind them.
