By Kenneth Araullo

RSA Insurance has announced the appointment of Matthew Gosling as senior specialist underwriter for engineering, power, and renewable energy for the insurer’s UK specialty lines business.

Gosling comes to the role as a construction and engineering specialist, tasked with managing and profitably growing RSA’s engineering portfolio. In this new role, he will report to RSA UK specialty lines director engineering, power, and renewable energy director Jon Drabble.

According to his LinkedIn, Gosling joins RSA from IGI, where he last held the role of class underwriter for construction and engineering. Gosling also held previous roles at HSB, Sompo International, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, Bspoke, and Towergate.

“The global construction industry faces a myriad of challenges, resulting from the unstable economic environment, crises impacting energy and raw materials and the urgent need to adapt to new and sustainable methods of construction. Collaboration and partnership are key to navigating any associated risk – and seizing opportunities – and having the right team in place to support our clients and partners to do this is of the utmost importance,” Drabble said.

“So I’m therefore delighted to welcome Matthew to RSA and our UK Specialty business,” Drabble said. “He’s well known and respected among brokers in the market and will enhance the capabilities we already have in the team. We’ve got ambitious plans to profitably grow this book of business and we look forward to Matthew helping us to realise those.”

RSA and Allianz were both awarded as Best Insurance Companies for Construction in the UK. Find out more about the winners in IB's 5-Star Construction 2023 special report.
