BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
MS Amlin PLC will pull out of nine classes of business as it reorganizes its underwriting operations, the Lloyd’s of London insurer said in a statement Monday.
Discontinued operations and lines include U.K. corporate property, real estate, casualty, package binders and fleet business, aviation, international bloodstock, U.K. yacht and its AUA Insolvency Risk Services, the statement said.
MS Amlin said the dropped lines will “trade as normal” as it seeks long-term solutions for each of them, the statement said.
The insurer and reinsurer said it will focus on “high-value” reinsurance, led by CEO Chris Beazley and Chief Underwriting Officer Dominic Peters, the statement said.
MS Amlin will also create a specialty insurance business by combining its marine and property/casualty international platforms headed by CEO Tom Clementi and Co-Chief Underwriting Officers Andrew Wright and Mark Clements, the statement said.
The insurer and reinsurer said it would also “selectively operate domestic specialty markets in European commercial insurance,” headed up by Rudy Benmeridja, interim CEO and chief underwriting officer.
“Whilst we have identified several classes of business that no longer fit within our long-term strategy, we believe there are other owners that are better positioned to take these great books of business forward,” Simon Beale, CEO of MS Amlin, said in the statement.
MS Amlin P.L.C. on Thursday said Chief Underwriting Officer Simon Beale will become CEO on April 1, succeeding Charles Philipps, who is retiring.
