La Playa International

The easy way to place insurance in the USA

  • Headaches placing US risks?
  • Unfamiliar with US insurance practices?
  • Laying off business to US brokers but concerned about service standards?
  • Need to issue local ACORD certificates for one-off placements?

Simplify your US risk placements through a transatlantic insurance partnership with La Playa International.

La Playa International can streamline placement of your clients’ risks in the US, helping you grow your business and providing you with a ready-made broking team across the pond – as well as super-convenient access via UK-based teams too.

UK companies are taking advantage of the market size and tax benefits to set up operations stateside. But are you sure your clients are getting the right cover across the pond? And are you earning what you deserve from it? If you’re placing your clients’ policies through US brokers, why not make it easier on yourself?

La Playa International can place your US risks - simplifying the process and streamlining the commission structure, within a trusted transatlantic insurance partnership. Our New York-based team has both primary Property & Casualty and Surplus Lines licenses, with access to an extensive panel of insurers including The Hartford, Hanover, Chubb, Travelers, Axa, State Farm, Fireman’s Fund, Zurich, CNA, AIG and Hiscox.

With our experienced team, you’ll know your clients are in safe hands: we deliver transatlantic capability with personal service. Service level agreements can be tailored to suit your needs and importantly, our partnership will be strictly limited to your clients’ USA needs; this is formally enshrined within our agreement with you.

  • Easy placement for US risks (commercial, private client and marine)
  • A single US broker for all your placement needs
  • Enhanced earnings through an attractive commission/fee model
  • Talk to UK teams with access to US systems during UK office hours
  • Jointly FCA & US-licensed staff in both our London and US offices

We think you’ll appreciate the compelling simplicity of our model – and a trusted transatlantic partnership with La Playa is backed up by teams of high-calibre individuals. Contact us to talk through your needs, and let’s work together to make your job easier.
