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.

Axis Underwriting Services Pty Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Steadfast Group Ltd (ABN 98 073 659 677) (‘SGL’) / Steadfast Group Ltd (ABN 98 073 659 677) (‘SGL’).

SGL may receive a professional services fee (PSF) from insurers, premium funders and underwriting agencies such as Axis Underwriting Services Pty Ltd (Partner) for access to regulatory and compliance support, marketing and communications, data insights, and access to technology platforms. The PSF is an agreed amount between SGL and the relevant Partner, usually annually. The PSF is not determined by the volume of the business that the Steadfast Network brokers place, nor is the amount of the PSF known to the Steadfast Network Brokers, so it is not able to influence recommendations to their clients.

Axis Underwriting Services Pty Ltd may have access to shared services from SGL, including: compliance tools, procedures, manuals and training, legal, HR banking, and group purchasing arrangements. These services are funded by SGL, subsidised by SGL or SGL receives a fee for them.

SGL’s FSG is available at www.steadfast.com.au or on request by telephoning SGL’s Company Secretary on +61 2 9495 6500.

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.
