Mosaic Insurance has expanded its cybersecurity business line internationally, with the addition of George Cole and Lucy Barker-Hahlo to its London-based unit.
Cole will work as an underwriter, having previously been assistant underwriter at Occam Underwriting.
Barker-Hahlo has been appointed as a junior underwriter, having previously worked as an assistant underwriter at EmergIn Risk.
Both will report to James Tuplin, head of international cyber at Mosaic, who is tasked with developing the international cyber portfolio in London, Continental Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.
Mosaic’s London cyber team is the product’s first international unit.
The team aims to “support clients in both preventing attacks and minimizing damage in the aftermath—from crisis services and legal defense to business interruption and data recovery”.
Mosaic offers a maximum capacity of up to £10m internationally.
Yosha DeLong, Mosaic’s global head of cyber, said: “With the cyber market rapidly hardening in 2021, and rate increases of between 40 and 50 percent on average now being seen, we feel this is a perfect time to grow our international cyber team.
“Building on our London unit bolsters our bench strength in market-leading talent and allows us to powerfully grow our global cyber offering.”
