Canopius hires new risk underwriter


Canopius, which has a major presence on Bermuda, has appointed Rebecca Marsden as credit and political risk underwriter.

Marsden will join Canopius later in the year from AXA Africa Specialty Risks, where she is currently political risk and credit underwriter.  She has broad ranging experience across broking and underwriting, as well as debt and equity capital markets sales and trading.

“We’ve been investing heavily in underwriting capability recently to boost our firepower across the credit, political and crisis division and Rebecca will be a great boost to that development,” said Bernie de Haldevang, head of specialty. “She brings some impressive experience and great specialist knowledge of insurance and banking, with a particular understanding of the risks our clients face. I look forward to her joining the team.”
