Hiscox appoints line underwriter for general liability


Hiscox has appointed Lara Frankovic as line underwriter for general liability.

Frankovic joined Hiscox in March 2019 as senior general liability underwriter from GenRe where she had a 15-year career as a facultative reinsurance underwriter. 

She reports to Hiscox London Market's divisional director for casualty, Matthew Webb. She leads a four-strong general liability underwriting team, focusing primarily on large US domiciled accounts. 

Frankovic said: "While market conditions have been challenging for some time, Hiscox has maintained a consistent underwriting approach for general liability risks. And we will continue to offer a broad appetite, backed up by skilled underwriting to meet the needs of our clients and brokers. Our philosophy is to find a way to say 'yes' to the difficult, complex risks that other markets might decline, while leading the way in new product innovation."

Webb said: "Given the long tail and complex nature of the general liability risks we underwrite, and the market challenges in areas like social inflation, we recognise the importance of delivering the long-term stability and sustainability our clients and brokers need and expect from us.”

In February Hiscox London Market appointed Emily Taylor as line underwriter for marine and energy liability and Aimee Nolan as line underwriter for cargo.
