Hiscox has appointed Aimee Nolan to head up its London Market cargo underwriting team.
Nolan will be based in Hiscox’s London office reporting to Mike Southgate, divisional director for Marine, Energy and Specialty.
Previously deputy head of Cargo at Canopius since 2016, Nolan also had a four-year spell as a senior underwriter at Amlin, as well as broking roles with Glencairn Limited and Aon Limited.
Nolan was elected as a member of the International Cargo Insurance Conference committee (ICIC) in January 2019.
She will manage a cargo team of four underwriters with additional support in pricing and exposure management, and be responsible for continuing to build Hiscox’s reputation as a leading cargo underwriter in the London Market.
Mike Southgate, divisional director for Marine, Energy and Specialty at Hiscox said: “Cargo owners around the world face increasingly complex operating challenges related to issues such as pandemic induced capacity problems, customs delays and economic sanctions.
“Cargo insurance is a core part of our offering and helping our clients to effectively manage their cargo risks and protect their balance sheet with a broad and competitive product is critical.”
