OneBeacon Specialty Property

One Solution for your Excess Property Needs

OneBeacon Specialty Property provides a broad range of commercial property coverage solutions and focuses entirely on excess placements, including:

  • High capacity business – risks that, due to size or natural catastrophe exposure, cannot be handled by a single carrier.
  • Distressed business – risks with unfavorable characteristics that make them unacceptable to standard markets.
  • Unique risks – business that is very unusual and therefore avoided by the standard markets.

Our OBSP team has extensive experience in specialty property accounts and applies this expertise to deliver flexible, innovative and high-quality insurance solutions—all supported by superior service to our customers, backed by the financial strength of the OneBeacon balance sheet.
