CNA Hardy, a specialist commercial insurance provider for clients within the Lloyd’s and company markets, announced it has joined Lloyd’s Insurance Company (China) Ltd. in Shanghai by establishing CNA Hardy Underwriting division on the platform.
The company began operating from the platform on Jan. 1, 2016.
Cathy Sun has been appointed to lead the development of new business written through the Lloyd’s China platform, on behalf of CNA Hardy Syndicate 382.
Sun joins from XL Catlin, and has over 20 years’ industry experience predominantly in property, but also in casualty, construction and marine cargo. She is based in Shanghai and will lead new business development in China and manage CNA Hardy’s China domiciled risks.
CNA Hardy’s immediate focus in China, via Lloyd’s China, will initially be the same classes of business offered through its Singapore office. These are: property treaty, construction, marine and casualty. There will also be a focus on developing new lines of business as its experience in the market deepens.
Dave Brosnan, CEO of CNA Hardy said: “We are delighted to announce our participation in the Lloyd’s China platform as we continue to build out our capabilities in Asia. This is an exciting time of growth for us in the region and being part of the Lloyd’s China platform will ensure we continue to build enduring relationships with our global customers and producers, delivering innovative and specialized solutions by product and industry specialism.”
