Thatch Risk Acceptances (TRA) was established on 1 July 1998 with the specific aim to service the diverse and unique needs of the thatch risk market.

TRA is the only insurance player in the market to specialize exclusively in thatch insurance and over the years they have built a strong understanding of the requirements of this market. Whilst they are the thatch experts, TRA also insures log cabins and timber frame homes.

Thatch Risk Acceptances believe in managing a risk and not merely insuring it and they work closely with the Broker fraternity to minimize the risks associated with thatch homes. Cover is offered for the structure, house contents, all risks, motor vehicles and pleasure craft providing complete peace of mind to the client for their personal insurance.

TRA underwrites their products on behalf of Compass Insurance Company.


With a track record spanning over fifteen years they offer an impeccable service to the broker fraternity. The catastrophic St Francis Bay Fires experienced in November 2012 tested TRA thoroughly and they have withstood the challenge and further enhanced their reputation in the thatch market.
