Neon bolsters Bermuda property reinsurance team


Neon has appointed Chris Conway to its property reinsurance team in Bermuda, reporting to head of property reinsurance, Nick Pritchard, effective immediately.

The company said that Conway will work with Pritchard to expand Neon’s ambitions in the US market, producing business for Neon’s Bermuda office through US brokers.

According to Neon Conway has experience in underwriting traditional and collateralised US and international property catastrophe, retrocession, property per risk and insurance linked-securities.

He was most recently a senior underwriter at Ascot Underwriting Bermuda and, prior to this, worked for a wide range of capital platforms, having previously held roles at AQR Re, Third Point Reinsurance and Axis Specialty.

“We are thrilled to welcome Chris to Neon Bermuda and he joins the number of high calibre appointments we’ve made since opening the office in 2016,” said Chris Fisher, CEO Neon Bermuda. “Chris’s hire will further build on our significant progress to date and emphasises our desire to expand our US book of property business. His broad experience will prove invaluable in supporting the expansion of Neon’s underwriting platform in Bermuda as we continue to enhance and diversify our capabilities.”
