Talbir Bains’ Volante Global has launched Nordic focused MGA Bridge Underwriting.
This represents the second managing general agency (MGA) to be launched on the MGA platform, following the launch of UK commercial motor specialist MGA Edison Motor in January.
From March, the Stockholm-based MGA will commence writing a broad range of Nordic risks including property, liability, financial lines and commercial combined insurance solutions and will be led by Torkel Lindberg who will serve as managing director.
Lindberg joins from QBE where he was general manager for the Nordic region. Prior to that, he held senior positions at both Marsh and Willis in Sweden.
Volante founder and CEO Talbir Bains said: “The Nordic region remains a much-coveted territory for the London market, underpinned by a consistent delivery over the long term of very respectable combined performance to its insurers.”
Meanwhile, Lindberg added: “As a specialist MGA, Bridge Underwriting provides the perfect vehicle to deliver a comprehensive range of relevant products to the Nordic market,
“The flexibility and responsiveness inherent in the MGA structure will enable us to fully capitalize on the underwriting expertise within our team to develop solutions that truly meet the very diverse needs of our clients.”
