London, UK - September 04, 2017
XL Catlin’s insurance operations today announced the appointment of Owen Williams as Captive Centre of Excellence Manager.
Based in London, Mr. Williams will work with underwriters and XL Catlin’s captive clients globally to deliver the best-in-class fronting services clients have grown to expect from XL Catlin. He will report to Matt Latham, Head of Captive Programmes, at XL Catlin.
Commenting, Matt Latham said: “We have grown our captive business significantly over the past three years; establishing our Centre of Excellence allows us to continue to deliver outstanding service for existing clients while growing our portfolio. Owen’s stellar market experience ideally positions him to lead our Centre of Excellence and I am delighted to welcome him to the team.”
Mr. Latham added: “In recent years there has been a steady trend for clients to expand the range of coverages written in their captives beyond standard property and casualty risks, to include emerging risks such as cyber or non-damage business interruption. Strengthening our team and offering allows us to support these clients as they move forward.”
Mr. Williams has over 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry. He joins XL Catlin from Zurich Insurance plc, where he spent 11 years, most recently as Head of Captive Services in the UK. Prior to joining Zurich Insurance plc, he held a number of underwriting positions at RSA Insurance plc.
