UK-based specialist insurer Amlin plc is setting up a U.S. market for casualty reinsurance targeting nationwide business with a focus on general and professional liability.
The business will be sourced direct from U.S. brokers and underwritten on behalf of Syndicate 2001 within Lloyd’s, through a new U.S.-based Amlin service company, Amlin Reinsurance Managers Inc.
Amlin Reinsurance Managers will be open for business on Oct. 1 and will operate from offices in New Jersey. The new team will be led by Paul Brauner, an industry veteran who has worked at F&G Re, Chubb Re, and most recently at Harbor Point/Alterra. He will report to Duncan Dale, head of Amlin London’s property/casualty business.
