Tania Bensoussan-Arthur

Speak to me in :


Currently Manager of AXA XL’s Specialty business in France, I have been developing customized insurance solutions for over two decades. Having held positions in both broking and underwriting professions, I am used to responding to a range of risks and challenges.

I joined the company in 2004 as a marine underwriter after having worked for SIACI as a marine broker for seven years. I became the leader of the French marine team in 2008 and, from 2011 onwards, I played a key role in bringing together the French fine art & specie and marine teams to create our first European specialty unit. Today, I am Underwriting Manager, Specialty for France. Our team focus on transport insurance, fine art & specie and product recall.

I hold a French master’s degree in international trade from the University Paris XIII and speak French, English and Spanish fluently.
