We are delighted to inform you that with effect from 8 December 2017, Steadfast will acquire Axis Underwriting Services Pty Ltd (“Axis”).

This recognises the excellent reputation of Axis and the services we have been providing to you and many other partners since 1999.

Axis has established strong and valued relationships with our partners over many years. This change allows us to expand services and ultimately the value that we bring to you by combining Steadfast’s strength and network, both domestically and internationally, with our expertise. Steadfast’s investment recognises the strong brand which has been built, and the quality of the Axis management team and employees.

Axis has been a Steadfast Partner since 2009, meaning we already have a strong working relationship on which to build. In addition, Steadfast Group and Axis are strategically and culturally aligned, and we look forward to working closer together to grow the businesses.

There will be NO CHANGE in our day-to-day activities, and it will be BUSINESS AS USUAL.

  1. The name, address, telephone and other contact details will remain unchanged.
  2. There will be no change in the familiar persons with which you have been dealing over many years.
  3. The company will continue to be led by:

Gary Dawson      Managing Director

We assure you, our valued partner, that we are dedicated to continuing to service your insurance needs in the professional and valued way to which you have become accustomed.

We are very excited about the future, in the firm belief that, with Steadfast, we will not only continue to deliver a high level of service, but will also enhance the insurance support with which you are so familiar.

Please feel free to contact the Axis management team if you have any queries.
