Specialist global insurer, Hiscox names Aimee Nolan to lead its London Market cargo team as cargo line underwriter.
Based in London, Nolan will report to Mike Southgate, divisional director for Marine, Energy and Specialty.
In her new role, she will manage a cargo team of four underwriters with additional support in pricing and exposure management.
Nolan joins the business from Canopius where she has served as deputy head of cargo since 2016. She also spent four years as a senior underwriter at Amlin as well as broking roles with Glencairn Limited and Aon Limited.
Southgate commented: “Cargo owners around the world face increasingly complex operating challenges related to issues such as pandemic induced capacity problems, customs delays and economic sanctions. Cargo insurance is a core part of our offering and helping our clients to effectively manage their cargo risks and protect their balance sheet with a broad and competitive product is critical.
“It’s why we have appointed Aimee to lead the team. She has already made a big name for herself amongst the next generation of leading underwriters coming through and is well respected by brokers and clients alike. With a broking background to add to her extensive underwriting experience, she has deep insight into the client perspective which will be hugely valuable to us as we continue to build on Hiscox’s reputation in the cargo arena.”
Aimee Nolan said: “Hiscox has re-established itself in the cargo insurance market in recent years and I’m excited to help take the team to the next level. We know it’s been a tough risk landscape for cargo clients and we’re committed to partnering with them and their brokers to develop the best risk solutions.”
