No-one tackles risk like we do

Elite is a leading player in the insurance market. Our solutions address specific areas of risk including Legal Expenses Insurance, Professional Indemnity Insurance and General Insurance.

A brief history of Elite

Elite Insurance has evolved rapidly to become one of Europe’s leading Insurers. A commitment to continual expansion and acquisition enables us to offer clients unrivalled expertise in many niche areas of insurance.

In 2005, Elite Insurance was acquired by Litcomp Plc and Torridon Capital Ltd was formed. In 2006, Elite Insurance commenced trading and Litcomp Plc was listed on AIM. Litcomp Plc was taken private by Torridon Capital Ltd in 2010 and a UK branch was established. In 2011 Torridon Capital was acquired by Torridon (Gibraltar) Ltd. The entire Group redomiciled to Gibraltar and a Spanish branch was established. 2012 saw the establishment of an Italian branch and, in 2013, a French branch.

Who we are

As a team we are united in our commitment to providing insurance solutions that embrace the needs of our clients. We focus on delivering these products quickly, conveniently and competitively. Strong relationships with resellers, who we regard as an integral part of the Elite team, are fundamental to our success. As a result we have established an unrivalled network to mutual advantage.

We are regularly entered into industry awards and our rapid growth in the UK, Spain, Italy and France, has earned us a place in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100.

What we do

Since our inception in 2005 we have grown steadily to become a major player in legal expenses insurance, professional indemnity insurance and general insurance. Unlike many mainstream insurers, who offer a standard range of rigidly underwritten policies, we deliver custom insurance solutions.

Our underwriting departments are experts at devising tailored and fully risk assessed solutions to new or complex problems. This concentration of specialist underwriting expertise and talent, together with immediate access to decision makers and technical expertise, enables intermediaries to provide flexible, affordable solutions across a diverse portfolio of insurance products.
