AXIS plots renewable energy expansion in Iberia and Latin America, hires two underwriters


AXIS Insurance has hired Nicholas Boswell Brown and Claire Whelan as renewable energy underwriters within its renewable energy business. 

Boswell Brown and Whelan will take up their posts in April and will support the expansion of AXIS’ renewable energy business in Spain, Portugal and Latin America.

Boswell Brown joins from Aon where he spent 10 years as a facultative reinsurance broker for Latin American property and power generation risks. Before that he was an assistant broker at Guy Carpenter and Aon Benfield in Santiago, Chile.

Whelan joins from Aviva where she spent the past four years as a renewable energy underwriter. She was previously an engineering underwriter at Aviva, having started her career as an underwriting assistant for D&O and commercial crime.

Richard Carroll, global head of renewable energy at AXIS, said the hires “will enable us to rapidly scale up our business in Spain, Portugal and Latin America, which are some of the fastest-growing parts of the Renewable Energy market.”
