International managing general agent DUAL Group has brought in its first-ever head of emerging products.

Taking on the newly created London-based role in September is Scott Sayce. With over two decades of experience in specialist lines insurance, Sayce has held various global leadership positions. His previous posts include group head of financial lines and cyber at AXA; head of cyber, technology, and life science at CNA Hardy; and, latterly, global cyber head at Allianz Commercial.

“Scott is a great addition to the DUAL Group leadership team, and we’re delighted that he has chosen to join DUAL,” chief executive Richard Clapham (pictured) stated. “Being successful in today’s fast-moving insurance market requires a deep understanding of the industry trends that drive clients’ emerging insurance needs.

“Scott brings very relevant and extensive underwriting and broking experience, which will drive our innovation agenda and collaboration with our carrier partners.”

David Harries, who came on board as group director of underwriting in January, added: “Scott has a proven track record of bringing innovative and complex products to market.

“In this newly created role at DUAL, Scott will be working closely with our CEOs and expert underwriting teams in each of our regions and combining this with the insights we gain from our global network of over 11,000 broker partners, helping to ensure we deliver better outcomes for their clients.”

Commenting on the appointment, Sayce cited his keenness to play his part in realising the MGA’s growth ambitions.

“DUAL offers one of the most agile and responsive business models in the market, with continuous innovation sitting as a foundational pillar to provide solutions to risks customers face today and the risks they may encounter tomorrow, from traditional through to cyber, emerging technology, and sustainability exposures,” he said.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the team and contributing to DUAL’s future growth plans.”
