Dutch insurer ANV has appointed John Hopper as head of energy to lead its energy underwriting team within ANV Syndicate 1861.

Hopper joins from AIG, where he was a member of the offshore energy division for the past five years. He has also held leadership positions both as a broker and underwriter at JLT, Sedgwick (Marsh) and others.

Hopper said: “ANV offers a unique combination of capital strength with an entrepreneurial commitment to underwriting innovation. We see the opportunity to maintain the team’s established strength in detailed risk analysis and pricing techniques, while being able to promote strong leadership capabilities and develop a broader client base.”

Chris Jarvis, active underwriter ANV Syndicate 1861, added: "ANV is entering an exciting new phase within our upstream energy line. John brings a unique underwriting perspective and considerable market experience. Upstream energy continues to experience challenging market conditions, with ample capacity ensuring a very competitive environment."

Matthew Fairfield, founder and chief executive officer of ANV, said: “Underwriting and service are the core tenants of our business and our mission at ANV. Market leading underwriters like John will make the difference and assure the long term success for our team in competitive and wide reaching markets like energy.”
