SiriusPoint has announced that Bobby Heerasing has been appointed active underwriter of Lloyd’s Syndicate 1945, effective 1 September.
Currently also head of international strategic business development, it was previously announced that Heerasing will take on the role of SiriusPoint UK country brand manager following the sale of SiriusPoint’s Lloyd’s managing general agent to Mosaic Insurance.
The sale, which is expected to complete in Q4 2022, subject to Lloyd’s and regulatory approvals, will see Robert Harman, managing director of Sirius International Managing Agency (SIMA) and SiriusPoint London chief executive officer (CEO), transition to Mosaic to continue his role as CEO of the managing agency. SiriusPoint will retain Syndicate 1945 and its UK Branch operations.

I look forward to my continued work with the SiriusPoint team and our valued brokers and partners, as we expand our capabilities for the future.”
Scott Egan, CEO of SiriusPoint, added: “The Lloyd’s market is an important and integral part of SiriusPoint’s offering. The strength of this appointment reflects our commitment to building a profitable and sustainable business and adding value to the Lloyd’s franchise.”
