Global specialty insurer Canopius has appointed a new energy underwriter to its Asia-Pacific division.

In her new role, Victoria Philips will be based in Singapore and will report directly to Geoff Tin, Canopius head of energy. Philips joins from Marsh Singapore, where she most recently led the firm’s combined upstream operational and offshore construction teams as senior vice president. She began her career at Miller in London as a facultative reinsurance broker, before moving to Marsh in 2011. 

Canopius’s energy offering is predominantly an upstream energy account, incorporating renewable energy, with limited midstream and downstream components. It offers protection for energy property physical damage, offshore construction all risks, excess third party liability and operators’ extra expense / control of well risks.

In addition, the renewable energy offering includes coverage for construction all risks, contingent delay in start-up, operational all risks, contingent business interruption and third party liabilities.

“We pride ourselves on our joined-up approach to energy across our global offices, and our common strategy across our platforms ensures we offer a seamless energy product to our brokers,” said Mark Newman, head of Canopius Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and North Africa. “Victoria’s enthusiasm and passion for finding excellent solutions to our clients’ challenges, as well as her significant broking experience, will be a great asset to the team.”
