Your External Support Team


“HIVE Underwriters owe a huge debt of gratitude to Charles Rowley and the DA Strategy team. If the name doesn’t speak for itself, their strategic thinking of all things relating to Delegated Underwriting is second to none and comes from many years’ first-hand experience in both Lloyd’s and the Company markets. DA Strategy were involved from the very formation of both HIVE Underwriting and HIVE Aero (now HIVE Underwriters) in 2017 and continue to be actively involved today as we look to expand into new business lines within the specialty insurance sector.
