Hawkes Bay traces its roots to the various maritime businesses owned by the Tysers family of London in the nineteenth century. After 180 years as a private partnership, Hawkes Bay became the holding company of its insurance operations.
Over time, it expanded its investment portfolio and in 2008, SART was incorporated in Hong Kong as a Managing General Agent and a Lloyd’s Coverholder. SART’s hallmark was the significant presence in Asia Pacific and international expertise in casualty, engineering, financial lines and marine insurance.
In 2021 to reconnect with our 200 year history, SART rebranded as Hawkes Bay Underwriting.
