Markel hires political risk underwriter from Sompo Canopius
Specialist insurer Markel International has appointed Alex Holcroft as political risk underwriter in Singapore.
Holcroft will join the company's existing trade credit and political risk team serving the Asia Pacific region, and will report to Nicola Marriage, senior underwriter in London.
In his new role, Holcroft will focus on expanding the political risk and structured trade credit business.
Holcroft joins Markel from Sompo Canopius where he was an underwriter in the political risk and structured trade credit team.
"Alex’s appointment reflects the continuing investment across our product portfolio," said Ewa Rose, managing director of Markel’s trade credit, political risk and surety business.
"The Asia Pacific region remains rich in opportunities both for our trade credit and political risk business and for Markel’s broader range of products."
