The Company

Strata Community Insurance is a privately owned underwriting agency that specialises in Strata and Community Title insurance. Established in 2014, it has rapidly expanded to include over 80 staff in 5 branches across Australia, representing over 300 years of collective strata insurance experience.

Experience and exceptional customer service is the foundation of our business. Strata Community Insurance prides itself on its staff, which include some of the best market managers, underwriters, claims, and legal people in this niche market sector. There is no one who knows more about strata than we do. The founders of Strata Community Insurance created the first ever strata insurance policy in Australia in 1978, and went on to do the same in some of the world's most challenging insurance markets – the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the Middle East. Since then it's fair to say that most coverage innovations enjoyed in strata insurance today were designed and introduced by our founders.

Strata Community Insurance today carries on this proud heritage – continually adapting our products in line with emerging exposures, new laws and regulations, and developments that affect our customers – while staying at the forefront of regulatory and legislative change and being actively involved in various State and Federal law reviews.

As a company, Strata Community Insurance is committed to maintaining not only excellent customer service but also employee satisfaction. Strata Community Insurance is highly committed to recruiting the best people, and developing and rewarding them. We create an environment that encourages our people to work, grow and succeed. We promote professional development and realistic career progression in order to have the best people in our company.
