We're an underwriting agency specialising in liability insurance products.

Welcome to The Liability Company.

We’re a specialist, independent, underwriting manager with a particular interest in commercial insurance to protect against the impact of litigation.

Our commitment extends through a suite of comprehensive specialist insurance products, encompassing Professional Indemnity, Directors and Officers Liability, Broadform Liability, and Medical Malpractice.

The product range caters to diverse client needs, whether they are prominent corporations or SMEs.

As a boutique, owner-managed business, we take pride in our ability to tailor bespoke solutions. Our proactive approach to claims is underscored by a ‘can-do’ ethos, and we eagerly engage with brokers and clients to navigate the intricacies associated with liability-based claims.

Helping intermediaries deliver exceptional service and quality advice

Technological advancements are reshaping the insurance industry. Simultaneously, liability exposures have reached unprecedented levels.

Customers have high expectations of their risk advisers. Sound insurance advice needs to be delivered around the clock at break-neck speed. This is daunting for many brokers who may be more comfortable discussing property based risks with their clients rather than delving into the liability insurance environment. 

We provide brokers with access to digital tools and face to face expertise so that they can deliver the best possible financial advice, risk management and insurance products, even in the tightest time frames.

Ken van Sweeden

The Liability Company started its journey back in 2019 as Liability Matters. The business was founded by serial entrepreneur, Allen McDonogh and Ken van Sweeden, a well known liability specialist and entrepreneur in the insurance industry. Ken had a vision to build a business that supported businesses and professionals in South Africa with traditional, dependable values. Tragically Ken passed away in 2021 during the pandemic. The business was kept on course by Debbie Fleisher who is still our underwriting director today. We have retained "Liability Matters" in our new branding to pay tribute to Ken, and to underline that we do what we do, because liability really does matter.


A word from our underwriting director

As we deploy more technology in our business we've been firm about the importance of the human element in all our interactions. We continue to be driven by a commitment to augmenting the intrinsic value of brokers' roles in the insurance industry.
