    Membership and affiliation

There are currently three categories of membership available within the IUA:

Ordinary – denotes full membership status with voting rights and an active involvement in the governance and operation of the association. Ordinary membership is open to international and wholesale insurance and reinsurance companies that hold a license from their domiciliary regulator to transact such business. In practice, most Ordinary members tend to operate in or through London.

Associate – open to insurance and reinsurance companies outside of London. Associate members may attend the association’s annual general meeting, but have no voting rights. They receive a basic publication service.

Affiliate – there are two types of affiliate membership designed to suit the needs of applicants. Some affiliate members prefer to participate in the claims-related work of the IUA as they provide run-off services to their clients. Alternatively we offer an affiliate membership for promotional activities whereby affiliates can benefit from controlled access to ordinary members via various media channels.
