15 January 2019

Slade will work closely with Andy Caldwell, active underwriter, Syndicate 1955, to help strengthen existing broker relationships and seek new opportunities for considered growth. 

In their new positions, Bourrut Lacouture and Saunders will have oversight of the activities of the insurance and reinsurance business lines across Syndicate 1955, with the heads of underwriting reporting directly to them.

Commenting on the promotions, Caldwell said: “David is an experienced underwriter with strong technical knowledge, he is held in high regard in the market. As deputy active underwriter I have no doubt that he will help sharpen our focus on profitable underwriting and further improve performance across the business.

“Establishing the new roles of head of insurance and reinsurance creates a more efficient internal structure.  It enables quicker decision making, promotes greater interaction between business lines, and ultimately improves our ability to respond to our brokers. I am delighted that David, Ondine and Simon have taken on these roles and look forward to seeing the benefits that this new structure will generate.”
