Canopius adds to energy team


Canopius has appointed Victoria Phillips as energy underwriter. She joins from Marsh in Singapore and will continue to be based in Singapore.

According to the company, she will report to Geoff Tin, head of energy, and will work closely with its London team as well as the renewable energy team in the Netherlands.

“We pride ourselves on our joined-up approach to energy across our global offices, and our common strategy across our platforms ensures we offer a seamless energy product to our brokers,” said Mark Newman, head of AsiaPac MENA at Canopius. “Victoria’s enthusiasm and passion for finding excellent solutions to our clients’ challenges, as well as her significant broking experience, will be a great asset to the team.”

Phillips began her career at Miller in London as a facultative reinsurance broker, before moving to Marsh in Singapore. Having joined in 2011 as offshore construction broker, she became leader of that team, before being promoted to lead the combined upstream operational and offshore construction teams in 2016, most recently as senior vice president.

According to Canopius, its energy offering is predominantly an upstream energy account, incorporating renewable energy, with limited midstream and downstream components. It offers protection for energy property physical damage, offshore construction all risks, excess third party liability and operators' extra expense / control of well risks. The renewable energy offering includes coverage for construction all risks, contingent delay in start-up, operational all risks, contingent business interruption and third party liabilities.
