Specialty re/insurer Brit has recruited two underwriters from Barbican to their Professional Lines division to expand their Global Healthcare offering.
Casualty Direct portfolio director Stephen Moss said that the recruitment of Chris Brooking and Tom Kennedy "underlines our desire to broaden our global healthcare offering". He said that the appointments allowed Brit "to offer additional risk transfer solutions to healthcare clients in a hugely scalable and rapidly evolving market". Moss also said that the move would complement Brit's existing 10-year relationship with its non-US healthcare partner, The MPLC.
Janet Henderson, Professional Lines divisional director, said that "whilst market conditions remain challenging, Chris and Tom both bring an outstanding depth of expertise and underwriting acumen that will not only complement our very successful existing Healthcare business, but will also allow Brit to expand its US healthcare offerings".
