AEGIS London has announced the appointment of Lizzie Powell to the newly created position of head of specialty delegated facilities, effective immediately.
In her new role, she will report to Ben Lockwood, head of specialty. In her new role, she will build out the diversified follow portfolio that complements AEGIS London’s strong performing core account whilst adding new and incremental opportunity for profit.
Powell brings 14 years experience in the London insurance market and joins the business from Canopius Group, where she most recently held the role of head of special risk since 2017. She began her career as a reinsurance broker with Aon Benfield in 2007.
Lockwood said: “Lizzie has great credentials in this space including a deep understanding of the differentiated approach to distribution and is well respected by brokers and fellow underwriters. Her decision to move to AEGIS London is further evidence of our ability to attract insurance professionals with a strong market reputation operating at the top of their game and looking for a first quartile platform on which to trade.”
Powell added: “By developing this portfolio we are diversifying our exposure and reducing reliance on existing products to constantly deliver margin. The portfolio mix is built through carefully selecting opportunities supporting either proven expertise in a sector or a specific product. I have always admired and respected the AEGIS platform and their ability to consistently outperform their peers and am excited to be part of the next phase of their journey.”
