CFC move creates largest healthcare team in London Market

Specialist insurer CFC has merged its healthcare and medical malpractice teams.

With 15 underwriters working across 80 countries with 1,600 brokers, the now largest healthcare team in the London Market reaches over 6,000 end clients.

The combined team reports to Tim Boyce, who took up the role of head of professions and healthcare in 2021.

“Our newly formed healthcare team has decades of experience behind them and a wealth of knowledge of not only working with regimented and government-controlled industries, but also in pioneering solutions for the new digital health companies that are playing an increasingly important role in how our healthcare professionals deliver the care patients need,” Boyce said.

“However, healthcare professionals and businesses are increasingly facing a new wave of emerging risks. While the convergence of medicine and technology has been quietly underway for several years, the pandemic forced a massive acceleration in the adoption of digital health solutions. We believe that bringing our experts together under one operating unit will deliver the skills and focus required to continue to create insurance and risk management solutions that are fit for purpose and mitigate the rising tide of emerging threats to patient safety.”
