Dale Underwriting Partners bolsters liability offering with key move


By Kenneth Araullo

Dale Underwriting Partners (DUP), operating under the Lloyd’s Syndicate 1729 and part of Dale Managing Agency Limited, has announced the appointment of Andrew Carter as class underwriter for energy and liability insurance as the firm looks to expand its presence in the marine and energy liability sectors.

Carter is tasked with spearheading the development of Dale’s new business lines in marine and energy liability, aligning with the company’s growth trajectory, particularly following the recent regulatory approval in December 2023 for private markets manager CVC to acquire a majority stake in Dale Underwriting Partners.

Carter’s career history includes a significant tenure at Markel International, where he held the position of director of liability. During his time at Markel, he oversaw the marine & energy liability and transport & logistics teams in London and Asia.

His tenure at Markel began in 2014, following a 19-year stint at QBE Syndicate 1036, where he served as portfolio manager for liability and was a member of the joint liability committee for eight years.

“I am delighted to be joining Dale Underwriting Partners, a well-respected and entrepreneurial company that provides an exceptional underwriting service to clients and brokers alike. I’m excited to start working with Matt and his team at this exciting point in the company’s history,” Carter said.

Carter will be based in London, directly reporting to Matt Holmes, head of energy at Dale Underwriting Partners.

“I am extremely pleased to announce Andrew’s appointment, and we look forward to working with him in 2024,” Holmes said. “Andrew has a proven track record of working within the liability sector and his extensive experience will help us develop and expand our marine and energy offerings in 2024.”
