Authorisation has been granted by the FCA for Priority Underwriting to operate as an Appointed Representative of Ambant Underwriting Services Limited (www.ambant.com). Ambant are providing the legal, compliance, regulatory, financial solvency, accounting and back-up support necessary for Priority Underwriting to get going.

In anticipation of final approvals, Priority Underwriting would welcome meetings with power clients visiting London in advance of their renewal dates. They have positioned themselves right in the heart of the market – on the 4th Floor of the Lloyd’s Building.
