Originally named Stalker Hutchison & Associates, the company was founded in 1985 by Angus Hutchison and Tony Stalker as a local broad form liability alternative to the Lloyd’s market.
The SHA partnership with South Africa’s largest insurer, Santam, dates back to 2000.
In 2008, a merger with Admiral Underwriting gave birth to the current entity, Stalker Hutchison Admiral (Pty) Ltd although we are known to brokers in the market simply as SHA Risk Specialists. The company is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Santam Limited and is the largest niche casualty underwriting manager on the African continent. All of SHA’s insurance products are underwritten exclusively by Santam.
Today we are proud to be associated with the majority of the South African Financial Mail’s Top 100 companies as well as a broad spectrum of medium to smaller enterprises locally and internationally.
Stalker Hutchison Admiral is an Authorised Financial Services Provider (FSP 2167) and is a wholly owned subsidiary of and provides insurance underwriting services exclusively on behalf of Santam Ltd. Santam is an Authorised Financial Services Provider (FSP 3416).
