Specialty lines MGA Ensurance has announced the appointment of Martino D’Aliesio as its lead Casualty underwriter.
The move will reportedly expand the MGA’s presence in Casualty underwriting, building on its core lines in Construction, Engineering and Terrorism.
D’Aliesio brings with him 30 years of casualty market experience, which include a range of underwriting roles at Dual, Liberty Mutual and Brit.
According to the group, he also has a “proven track record” of developing and managing Casualty business in both the Lloyd’s, London and UK regional markets.
Following the hire, Ensurance has launched three new underwriting lines; SME Casualty, Mid-Market Casualty and Risk Managed Casualty.
Between them, the products cover construction and non-construction risks, and are backed by a panel of Lloyd’s and company market ‘A’ rated insurers.
CEO of Ensurance Tim James said: “This marks another important step in the development of Ensurance’s business model. We believe the conditions are right to expand our presence in the Casualty market, and I’m pleased to be able to bring someone of Martino’s experience in to the team to lead this.
“Combined with new ‘A’ rated capacity, we are looking forward to offering our broker partners new risk solutions managed and underwritten with the same level of service and attention to detail they’ve come to expect from us.”
Martino D’Aliesio added: “I’m relishing this new challenge in leading Ensurance’s expansion in the Casualty market; making the most of my years of experience and current market connections. We will be working hard to bring insight and value to our broker and insurer partners.”
