Aspen Insurance has announced today (16 October) that Tony Raj will become the firm’s head of Aspen Insurance UK (AIUK) and Aspen Managing Agency Limited Claims (AMAL).
In his new role, Raj will lead the claims offering for Aspen’s international operations and drive the delivery of the firms’ claims commitment and proposition to both trading partners and customers.
Raj is set to join Aspen in 2021 from Hiscox, where he has been head of London market claims since 2009.
He was also responsible for the management and leadership of claims for three business units: Hiscox London Market Insurance (including Hiscox MGA), Hiscox Re, and Hiscox Special Risks.
Raj joined Hiscox in 2007 as head of first party claims and was previously a solicitor in the insurance and reinsurance department at Clyde and Co.
Mike Sowa, Aspen’s group chief claims officer, said: “It is testament to the excellent reputation of the Aspen claims team – and the wider ongoing efforts to transform our business with a strong focus on value creation – that someone with Tony’s experience and expertise is joining us at this time.
“I look forward to working closely with him as we continue to invest in this important part of our offering.”
