The Britannia Steam Ship Insurance Association Limited (Britannia P&I) and The Korea Shipowners’ Mutual Protection and Indemnity Association (KP&I) established a new collaboration agreement, Korea-Britannia P&I Collaboration ‘KBC’.

This new facility, which is exclusively available to Korean shipowners and operators, will provide cover on a mutual basis excess of a primary $500,000 layer insured by KP&I.

In August 2019, S&P re-confirmed Britannia P&I’s A (Stable) rating with financial strength above the AAA level and ‘exceptional’ liquidity.

KP&I is a P&I Club established subject to Korea’s Shipowners Mutual Protection and Indemnity Insurance Act 2000. Rated A- (Excellent) by A.M Best, KP&I has a membership of 22.6m gt and 253 members.

Shipowners with vessels entered in KBC will become members of both Britannia P&I and KP&I.  KP&I will market the facility and handle claims within their primary $500,000 layer while Britannia P&I will assume responsibility for handling any larger or complex claims with a potential to exceed the primary layer. Britannia P&I will also issue all compulsory certificates thereby guaranteeing compliance international maritime conventions.
