Strike Insurance Europe Transfer | Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide


Over the last few years, Standard Club has grown the underwriting and business development of the former Strike Club and changed its operational and cost structures to make them more efficient.

The Shipowners’ Mutual Strike Insurance Association Europe (‘SIE’) became part of the Standard Club group with effect from 1 February 2019 following approvals by members in general meetings.

SIE ceased underwriting on 20 February 2020 and SIE has continued to meet its obligations to members insured for the 2019/20 and earlier policy years, with Standard Reinsurance (Bermuda) Ltd supporting it as quota share reinsurer. From 21 February 2020, former SIE members have been able to buy strike & delay and war risks insurance from other insurers in the Standard Club group.

SIE is presently seeking approval from Luxembourg and Irish insurance regulators to transfer its insurance obligations to The Standard Club Ireland DAC (‘Standard Ireland’). Standard Ireland, like Standard Reinsurance (Bermuda) Ltd, has a published “A” financial strength rating from the financial rating agency Standard & Poor’s. Following a successful transfer of its obligations to Standard Ireland, the individuals and teams currently handling claims for former SIE members will continue to undertake that work on behalf of Standard Ireland, and SIE will be liquidated.

As part of this process, SIE and Standard Ireland are publishing notices along the lines set out below in various official gazettes and newspapers.
