Our History 

Our core team operated as Sterling Insurance Brokers in the 1980’s & early 1990’s before being acquired by Heath Lambert. The team continued to operate under Heath Lambert, joining the IUS Group in 2003. As IUS, the team evolved their product offering to include other industries/sectors such as Railway, Mining & Engineering risks, and Professional Indemnity.  

The launch as Sterling Insurance represents our move to a more focused, dedicated underwriting agency dealing exclusively with insurance brokers. It also represents our evolution to include more industries/sectors, but always ensuring that our solutions add value to insurance brokers and their client, the Insured.
