Standard Club

130 years ago, a group of ship-owners agreed to cover each other's 3rd party liabilities, rather than relying on commercial insurance. They asked their trusted coal merchant, Charles Taylor, to look after the money – creating a mutual insurance company: the Standard Club. The club is the fourth largest protection & indemnity (P&I) club in the world; it has a relationship with 25% of world shipping & directly insures around 10%.

Charles Taylor provides every function and every employee to this insurer – and in doing so, we resolve some of the of the world’s largest and highest-profile marine insurance losses.

Signal Mutual

Over thirty-five years ago, several enterprising waterfront employers in the USA came together to create a mutual to save on the cost of their workers' compensation. Signal Mutual was formed and appointed Charles Taylor as its manager. Today, Signal Mutual is the largest provider of Longshore workers’ compensation insurance to employees working in ports and terminals in the USA.

The Offshore Pollution Liability Association (OPOL)

All offshore operators active in exploration and production on the UK Continental Shelf are party to a voluntary oil pollution compensation scheme known as OPOL. OPOL was established to meet offshore pollution claims under the Offshore Pollution Liability Agreement 1974. Charles Taylor provides finance and administration services to the Association.


SCALA provides workers’ compensation insurance to the majority of Canada’s ship owners. We have worked with SCALA since the mutual was founded, providing dedicated management services that enable the business to achieve more.
