Geo Specialty expands terrorism and political violence team

Geo Specialty has announced the appointment of Paul Robinson as business development manager at its political violence and terrorism business.

Robinson joins from the government-backed terrorism reinsurance scheme, Pool Re, where he worked as head of distribution.

As business development manager, Robinson will work alongside brokers to deliver services for business owners and “drive terrorism insurance take up” through an increase in awareness.

He said: “I am passionate about terrorism insurance and in particular the need to raise risk awareness and cover among SMEs. 

“Whilst there are 5.4 million SMEs in the UK equating to 99% of total UK businesses, it’s estimated only 5% actually buy terrorism insurance – or are even aware that their standard policy excludes the cover.”

Prior to his position at Pool Re, Robinson experienced a number of senior roles at Eagle Star and Zurich

Marcus Meredith, head of terrorism and political violence at Geo Specialty, said: “Having Paul onboard will only strengthen our ability to give brokers the tools they need to discuss and advise their clients on the coverages available, pricing and placement strategy for terrorism cover.”
