Specialist insurer Beazley has added Kirsten Shastri to its international healthcare team in London.
Shastri, who joins from CNA Hardy with eight years of London market experience, will be focusing on UK & International life sciences business.
She will also underwrite Beazley’s recently launched UK Virtual Care policy, which offers protection against the risks associated with providing technology-enabled healthcare and lifestyle management.
“Life sciences has been a key sector for Beazley since we began underwriting more than 30 years ago. We have a well-established book in North America and today demand is also growing internationally in line with greater investment in the sector,” said Evan Smith, global head of miscellaneous medical liability at Beazley.
“Kirsten’s high level of technical underwriting expertise combined with her strong market relationships and scientific background bring additional strength and depth to our growing international healthcare team.”
“We welcome Kirsten to Beazley and look forward to continuing to develop innovative products tailored to the healthcare industry as increasing numbers of smart healthcare solutions come online.”
