Mark Berry

I’ve been privileged to work in many different reinsurance lines, across nearly all international jurisdictions, with recent years focused primarily on the London and International markets. My current role is a broad one, focused on specialty business, which encompasses all lines. This is unique and encourages me to maximize the benefits of our global network.

I serve as a Specialty Underwriter, overseeing multiple Specialty lines ranging from onshore energy, nuclear, terrorism, political risk and trade credit to strategic Lloyd’s corporate trade capital investments, as well as multiline structured products. I’m also a Managing Director on AXA XL’s Leadership Council.

I joined the Company in 1992 and was part of the Mid Ocean Re formation team. In 2006 I took the position of General Manager of the London branch of XL Re Europe Ltd and was based in London. In that role I was responsible for a portfolio of marine, aviation, non-casualty treaty and property facultative business. I was also a member of the XL Re Europe Ltd Executive Team. In 2012 I assumed responsibility for International Property and Specialty lines for XL Re Ltd (now XL Bermuda Ltd following its amalgamation with XL Insurance (Bermuda) Ltd) in Bermuda and joined its board.

I am Bermudian and hold the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation.
