International General Insurance Holdings (IGI) has announced the appointment of Emily Clapham as senior underwriter for the firm’s recently announced contingency line of business.
Based in IGI’s London office, Clapham will report to Richard Foster, head of property political violence and contingency. In her new role, she will be responsible for developing both standard and tailor-made solutions for a broad range of clients, operating across the event, entertainment, arts and sporting industries.
IGI launched its new contingency insurance line of business in April 2021 to take advantage of improving market conditions following a period of disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and government-mandated lockdowns.
The contingency line includes event cancellation coverage on an all risks or named perils basis, as well as non-appearance insurance, prize indemnity, bespoke parametric solutions, and transmission failure policies.
Foster said: “We are delighted to welcome Emily to IGI. She brings an impressive combination of technical underwriting skill and robust knowledge of the latest pricing systems and tools to put IGI in good stead to start writing contingency business as the event world opens up again.”
