Ed has decades of experience in marine, and we use it to deliver optimum outcomes for every client. Working with some of the largest marine specialist brokers in the world, our clients cross the spectrum: international blue-water and coastal operations, the cruise industry, shipbuilding, and ports and terminals. They include ship-owners, charterers, shipbuilders, port and terminal operators, and multi-modal transport operators. Our coverage is equally broad: from hull & machinery and protection & indemnity to specialist products developed for individual clients to cover areas such as political risks, contract frustration, business interruption, counter party insolvency, and revenue protection. Like all of Ed, we are joined up: we work closely with other specialists, especially the cargo team, to provide customised and multi-line package policies.
The story of Edge is the story of a group of independent entrepreneurs and friends coming together to form one of the largest independent marine insurance broking groups in Europe.
Individually, these brokers had built highly successful broking houses from scratch in the face of intense international competition. In coming together, they pool resources, knowledge and hundreds of years’ collective experience in service of Edge’s 300 clients in 25 countries.
Our story begins with David A. Edwards who joined London Special Risks in 1995, rising to Managing Director and sole shareholder in 2004.
During this time Tom Midttun, Nils Rokne and other partners launched NorthEdge in Norway with a focus on risk solutions and specialised products, a similar strategy to London Special Risk. Soon after, David A. Edwards bought shares in NorthEdge.
In 2008 Tom Hellebø started Oriental Special Risk in Singapore with financial backing from NorthEdge and London Special Risk and with David A. Edwards and Tom Midttun on its Board. Four years later, Edge Hamburg was founded as a registered and approved insurance broker.
These businesses traded together successfully in a commercial federation for two years until their leaders concluded that a more formal arrangement would serve their clients better. They formed Edge Group Holding AS in 2015 and continue to retain significant shareholdings and senior management positions across the group.
