IRT Insurance was founded in 1977 by Quentin Wallace – who also founded IRT (International Racehorse Transport) five years earlier – and was originally called Wallace Livestock Insurance Agency. Our qualified staff combine decades of experience with an on-going, specialised knowledge in the fields of both bloodstock and insurance, to provide clients with an unrivalled service.
It is the ability to understand all aspects of the horse industry, and appreciate each individuals client’s needs and concerns that make IRT Insurance an integral part of the Australian equine industry, not just another insurance company. All IRT Insurance plans are backed by the underwriting of Canopius US Insurance, Inc. which are a global specialty (re)insurer with business lines in Property, Casualty, Professional, and Specialty with operations in Australia, Bermuda, Singapore, the UK, the US, Malaysia (Labuan) and China (through Lloyd’s China).
