Liberty hires Ascot underwriter for casualty reinsurance
Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, has appointed Angus Hampton as underwriter in its casualty reinsurance division.
Hampton will be based in LSM’s London headquarters and report to Kevin Ritchie, head of the London casualty reinsurance division, and Shane Aldons, underwriting manager for international casualty reinsurance.
Hampton joins LSM from Ascot, where he has been an assistant underwriter since 2014. He entered the insurance industry as a member of Ascot’s graduate recruitment programme in 2012.
Dieter Winkel, LSM’s chief underwriting office for reinsurance, said: "Angus is a talented young underwriter with an excellent career ahead of him. He’s a great example of the new generation of graduates that we’ve been successful in recruiting as we build Liberty’s underwriting strength for the future."
LSM underwrites a portfolio of casualty reinsurance business globally from its London, Continental European and Latin American offices. The team provides capacity predominantly on an excess of loss basis.
