The company that is now UAA was founded in 1972 in Newcastle NSW where our current head office and administration centre is based today. In support of our Australia and New Zealand client base we have additional offices in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Auckland.
All our branch offices provide full sales and underwriting facilities providing local expertise. We use state of the art technology and quality control procedures to ensure an efficient and timely response to client needs.
UAA became an underwriting agency in 1988, and in 2008, UAA transitioned from private ownership to become a subsidiary of QBE Insurance. As of 1st April 2015, Steadfast Group Limited acquired ownership of all of UAA’s operations.
In-conjunction with the QBE Group, UAA has been involved in the successful introduction of the “ISP” product into the Latin America and Asian insurance markets.”
In particular, UAA underwrites on behalf of the QBE Insurance Group in Australia and New Zealand and provides services to QBE elsewhere in the world.
