Amlin plc, the specialist international insurer, has appointed Lucas Castagnino as lead underwriter, as momentum behind the build out of its Latin America underwriting activities gathers pace.
With experience in the Latin American reinsurance market, Castagnino joins from SCOR’s Latin American and Caribbean platform, where he was latterly vice president. He will report to Louis de Segonzac, head of Latin America and will be based in Amlin’s expanding Miami office.
The move further demonstrates Amlin’s long-term commitment to delivering the highest standards of service to its clients across Latin America and follows the appointment last year of Edward Herrara as senior underwriter, Amlin said in a statement.
Commenting on the appointment, Louis de Segonzac said: “Hiring someone of Lucas Castagnino’s calibre is testament to the significant progress made by our Latin American operations since we launched in Miami in 2014. Lucas’ market knowledge and experience, especially in long tail lines, will be invaluable to the broader team as we continue to strengthen our presence in the strategically important region.”
Amlin’s Miami operation underwrites all non-life treaty products and provides quotations for new and renewal business. Risks are underwritten on behalf of Amlin’s Lloyd’s Syndicate 2001.
