Consilium has appointed Matthew Gould (pictured above) as associate partner, placing international casualty business.

The move will grow the firm’s UK-based international broking team and will complement its existing international broking operations in Latin America, the US and Australia.

Gould was formerly a broker at Zeus before joining the Aventum Group’s global speciality broking business. He brings to Consilium extensive experience placing specialist and complex Canadian, Australian and US construction liability risks in the London market.

According to Consilium, Gould holds a law degree, and his background covers both broking and claims adjusting at organisations including Tokio Marine Kiln and Ark Syndicate Management. He has a large network of London market contacts who he works with to pre-underwrite policies using an in-depth understanding of risk placement – including T’s & C’s, retentions, pricing and loss ratio evaluation.

“Matthew’s appointment is a real coup for Consilium in the UK,” said Matt Pini, managing director at Consilium. “I’ve had so many positive comments from the market. The time is right for us to grow our UK-based international broking team, and Matthew, with his unique skill set, experience, energy, and solid relationships with London market underwriters, is the best person to grow our book. In time, we plan to expand the international team further to service expected demand.”

“We are seeing more international business coming back into the market after seeing a period of business being placed locally due to the hard market conditions here in London, and I expect that to gather pace as clients return to the stability and expertise of the London market,” Gould said. “I hope, with my expertise and relationships, I can help Consilium take a lead in that trend and give clients what they sorely lack from local markets. I am very excited by this opportunity. Consilium attracted me because of its culture and its people. It’s clearly a broker that’s got ambition, as well as a desire to constantly challenge the status quo to better service its clients.”
