International Underwriting Association

In Case Studies

2013 – Present & Onwards

The IUA is the representative body for the marine and non-marine sectors of the insurance market. Senior members of marine insurance companies had, since the 1850s, been meeting informally in the Jerusalem Coffee House and the Jamaica Wine Rooms near the Royal Exchange to discuss policy wordings and other matters of mutual interest. A proposal was made to establish a formal representative underwriting association in July 1882 and two years later the new ILU took up offices in the Royal Exchange Buildings.

Over the years we have catered for a vast number of meetings for this august body. The brief to produce food of the highest quality, prepared fresh on the day, above all variety. Many of the representatives to the body eat out every single day, it is important that they are not bored by the food we offer.

In response we have devised a series of chef’s specials, essentially showcasing the freshest most seasonal products available in the main wholesale markets on the day of the event, Perhaps the fact they have now booked with us into 2016 is a testament to the effectiveness of our response.
