BHSI bolsters Australasian transactional liability underwriting team

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (BHSI) – which provides commercial property, casualty, healthcare professional liability, executive and professional lines, transactional liability, surety, marine, travel, programs, accident and health, medical stop loss, homeowners’, and multinational insurance – has boosted its local transactional liability underwriting capabilities with its latest appointment.

Nicholas Ferrari has become BHSI’s head of transactional liability insurance in Australasia. He comes to BHSI from Liberty Specialty Markets, where he was most recently a senior underwriter for Liberty Global Transaction Solutions. Before joining Liberty Specialty Markets, he was an underwriter for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) at Ironshore Insurance.

Before his underwriting career, Ferrari was a solicitor at King & Wood Mallesons responsible for private equity and M&A. Before that, he was an administrative assistant at ANZ.

Cameron McLisky, head of executive and professional lines for Australia and New Zealand at BHSI, said the new hire brings a unique perspective as an experienced underwriter of transactional solutions and a solicitor who has worked with customers across a full range of transactions.

“We are excited to expand our global transactional liability team with local underwriting and leadership in Australasia,” McLisky added.

In his new role at BHSI, Ferrari will be based in Sydney.
