Specialist global insurer, Hiscox has named Emily Taylor as line underwriter, marine and energy liability.
In her new role, she will manage a team of four underwriters in London and report to Mike Southgate, division director for Marine, Energy and Specialty.
Taylor joined Hiscox in March last year as an underwriter for marine and energy liability. Prior to that, she spent four years as class underwriter energy liability at AXA XL.
Southgate commented: “As a lead market, Hiscox has a significant book of marine and energy liability business and we will continue to build on that solid base, offering our clients and brokers deep technical underwriting expertise in a rapidly evolving marketplace. Emily’s appointment is the latest in our drive to bring through a new generation of underwriters, providing perspective and innovation.
She is highly motivated and has a clear strategy for the marine and energy liability business, and I have no doubt that our team and market position is in great hands.”
Taylor added: “At Hiscox we specialise in complex, diverse and large liability accounts and will be looking to selectively grow our portfolio in these keys areas. We will also be working hard to deliver for our existing clients, as well as exploring ways in which we can take advantage of new technology to introduce operational efficiencies and service improvements.”
