Bjornar Andresen, Gard’s Chief Underwriting Officer said: "The marine market has seen considerable instability in the last year and this creates uncertainty and concern amongst owners. Insurance should be something which offers predictability which is why delivering consistency in our product, pricing and service is the bedrock of what we do.

“We deliver clarity around our targets for financial strength, resilience in how we deal with claims of whatever size and local support from our global network of offices.”
