By Terry Gangcuangco

Lloyd’s market global reinsurer MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL) will welcome Malcolm Barnes in September when he takes on the role of marine reinsurance head.

“I am very pleased we have secured someone with Malcolm’s reinsurance pedigree and market experience,” said MS AUL chief underwriting officer Andrew Carrier. “MS AUL has been involved in marine reinsurance for many years. It is an important market for us, and Malcolm’s appointment underlines both its significance and our ongoing commitment.

“With the recent announcement of Grant Baxter as head of reinsurance and deputy CUO, we continue to strengthen our reinsurance team around a central vision of profitable growth, developing mutually beneficial relationships with our key distribution partners.”

Barnes, who most recently served as head of marine treaty at Canopius, brings more than 35 years of reinsurance experience to MS AUL. His credentials include time spent at Amtrust, XL Re, and Guy Carpenter.
