Underwriting director John Mason told Insurance Business
about them last month, and now specialist casualty MGA Thistle Underwriting
has officially launched two products designed for high-risk and larger contractors.
Called “high risk,” the first liability insurance product caters to the likes of civil engineers, scaffolding contractors, hot roofers, and welding contractors with a turnover of up to £5 million. The other one is a construction scheme for larger contractors or those with a turnover of between £5 million and £15 million.
In line with the launch, Thistle has appointed a new underwriting team to focus on the two products.
Onboard as construction underwriting manager is Daniel Storr, whose three-decade underwriting experience includes time spent at Aviva
, Brit Insurance, and Zurich
. Andrew Oddy, on the other hand, has been named senior construction underwriter after working at firms such as NIG, Allianz
, and Broker Network
for more than 30 years.
“Daniel Storr and Andrew Oddy both bring a wealth of liability and construction underwriting expertise and experience, and I look forward to working with them in growing our high risk and construction accounts,” said Mason. “This is the first step in our vision for continued development for Thistle Underwriting, with plans for further investment in both the team and our IT infrastructure this year along with the launch of more new products.”
Mason previously told Insurance Business
that 2018 will be a very busy year for Thistle.
