Canopius boosts US management & professional lines team


Canopius, which has a major presence on Bermuda, has appointed William Kelly as senior vice president of its US management & professional lines team.

He will be based in the New York office and reports to Laurie Banez, head of US management & professional lines.

“Bill is widely respected by brokers and clients and has a diverse background of management and professional lines experience,” said Banez. “As we expand our offering in the US, we continue to focus on doing so in the right way and with the right people, so I am delighted to welcome Bill to the team and I look forward to adding more top talent and introducing new products and services throughout 2018.”

Canopius said that it is building a diverse profitable platform of US management and professional lines that reflects the group’s commitment to this sector and responding to the risk management needs of mid-sized to large commercial and financial institution risks.

The team currently offers excess pact, private pact and executive pact products, which will be available countrywide on both an admitted and non-admitted basis.
