Written by staff reporter
StarStone has announced the launch of a crisis management division, which will offer war and terrorism re/insurance and credit and political risks insurance.
The newly formed division is based around and strengthens StarStone’s existing war and terrorism division, led by Simon Low, who joined the company in July 2017 as group head of political risks and crisis management.
James Hannan has been appointed as head of War and Terrorism. He joins from Antares Managing Agency where, for the past six years, he served as class underwriter, terrorism and political violence. Before that he worked for Travelers Syndicate 5000 as deputy class underwriter, terrorism.
Andrew Summers has also joined as senior political risk underwriter from ArgoGlobal, where he was previously a credit and political risks underwriter. Prior to that, Summers worked for AIG Europe as a political risk underwriter.
Amy Henry also recently joined as war and terrorism underwriter from Antares Managing Agency where she served most recently as a deputy terrorism underwriter.
