Consilium, the global speciality re/insurance broking business of the Aventum Group, has announced the appointment of Matthew Gould as Associate Partner placing International Casualty.
Formerly a broker at Zeus, Gould brings experience in placing specialist and complex Canadian, Australian and US construction liability risks in the London market.
His background covers both placing broking and claims adjusting at organisations including Tokio Marine Kiln and Ark Syndicate Management.
As part of the UK based international broking team, Gould will work tocomplement Consilium’s existing international broking operations in Latin America, the US and Australia.
“Matthew’s appointment is a real coup for Consilium in the UK; I’ve had so many positive comments from the market,” said Matt Pini, Managing Director at Consilium.
“The time is right for us to grow our UK-based international broking team, and Matthew with his unique skill set, experience, energy, and solid relationships with London Market underwriters is the best person to grow our book,” Pini continued. “In time we plan to expand the international team further to service expected demand.”
Gould also commented: “We are seeing more international business coming back into the market after seeing a period of business being placed locally due to the hard market conditions here in London and I expect that to gather pace as clients return to the stability and expertise of the London Market.”
“I hope with my expertise and relationships I can help Consilium take a lead in that trend and give clients what they sorely lack from local markets. I am very excited by this opportunity. Consilium attracted me because of its culture and its people. It’s clearly a broker that’s got ambition, as well as a desire to constantly challenge the status quo to better service its clients.”
