Canopius has strengthened its political risk team with the appointment of Claire Kennett as underwriter, trade & political risk.
In her new role, Kennett will report to Crispin Hodges, head of trade & political risk at Canopius. She joins from Acapella Syndicate where she most recently served as underwriter, political risk. She previously held roles at Aon Underwriting Managers and Liberty Specialty Markets.
Kennett is the latest addition to Canopius’s dedicated trade political risk unit, which was created in October, and follows the appointment of underwriter Andrew Tongue earlier this month.
“Claire’s appointment further signals our intent to capitalise on the huge potential created by the combination of AmTrust and Canopius’s political risk capabilities,” said Hodges. “We are delighted to welcome Claire to Canopius, whose highly-relevant experience will be of huge benefit in the expansion and development of our dedicated trade political risk unit.”
