Our Organisation

A gap in the market, recognised by the late John Whitbread and Axis’ managing director Gary Dawson, was the inspiration behind the Axis brand.

Since 1999, Axis Underwriting Services (Axis) has been transforming the way Australian insurance brokers access security for high hazard and hard to place risks.

Our highly experienced underwriters take an unbiased approach when it comes to assessing and insuring specialised, high hazard occupations. We work in partnership with general insurance brokers and review each risk on its own merits.

With offices in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, our recently expanded occupation listings and increased capacity with Lloyd’s has enabled us to assist insurance brokers more than ever before.

If you are interested in any of our products and you are not a broker, please refer to your insurance broker or click here to find one.

Steadfast Group Limited (ABN 98 073 659 677) (‘SGL’) has a shareholding in Axis Underwriting Services Pty Ltd. Some of the brokers we deal with may be SGL subsidiaries or associates. We have access to shared services from SGL. These include (but are not exclusive to): model operating procedures, manuals, legal, technical, HR, compliance, sum insured and product comparison tools; insurance cover placement and claims support; group insurance arrangements; and group purchasing arrangements. These services are funded by SGL, subsidised by SGL or SGL receives a fee for them. 

Axis’ competitive edge is its people.  Our high performance workplace culture is maintained by empowering our people to pursue their goals, be innovative and seize new opportunities.
