At Western World, we're dedicated to making it as easy as possible to take care of your business by providing a range of specialty insurance services and world-class support.

Founded in the United States in 1964, we became a part of the Validus Group in 2014, a leading provider of insurance, reinsurance and investment services around the world.

With a fifty year track record of profitability, Western World focuses on U.S. Excess and Surplus Lines as well as being a pioneer in the binding authority business model.

We provide the tools you need to quote, bind and issue policies to customers easily and efficiently while our experienced Underwriting staff are always available to provide underwriting and marketing support. We launched WWIP (Western World Integrated Platform), the very first platform to allow brokers to rate, quote, bind and issue right on the web. We continue to invest in our technology, making improvements and enhancements to give our partners the easiest access to the right solutions for them.
