The global leader of marine and energy at Dual, Bernt Hellman has left the company. It has been speculated that the implementation of a more corporate culture has put off some who were attracted by the company’s entrepreneurial heritage. Hellman left Skuld syndicate 1897 in 2014 to construct Dual's marine and energy products. It is also believed that James Scott, former Skuld colleague of Hellman and Dual director of energy, will be leaving as well. The company wants to streamline processes and focus on improvement and quality of the data it offers to paper providers. An example is Dual's recent decision to appoint a panel of 10 insurers that would provide cornerstone capacity for 30% of its book that isn’t financial or professional lines.
