Delegated authority specialist DA Strategy has strengthened its operations with the addition of James Littley as Associate.
Littley joins DA Strategy from The Channel Syndicate, where he most recently served as Head of Delegated Underwriting.
He has more than 16 years’ experience in delegated authority, and previously worked as Delegated Underwriting Manager at W R Berkley.
In his new role, Littley will provide support for DA Strategy clients to improve efficiency, using the new framework for third-party oversight introduced by Lloyd’s.
Additionally, he will work closely with DA Strategy’s clients to both update and implement their risk-based approaches and help to optimise future delegated authority arrangements.
“We are delighted to welcome James to DA Strategy,” said Charles Rowley, Director of DA Strategy. “The last nine months have been really exciting for us and this recent appointment is testimony to the business growth we’re experiencing.”
Rowley continued: “Delegated authority has never been so important to our market as carriers seek non-correlating risk opportunities through access to niche products, underwriting specialists and new distribution or geographies. It is also a vital component in the plans that have been set out by Lloyd’s in its Future at Lloyd’s Blueprint One.
“It is for these reasons it’s important that we bolster our team with the best talent to deliver the best delegated authority solutions to our clients,” he concluded.
Littley also commented: “I’m joining the team at DA Strategy at a really exciting time and it’s great to be part of a growing business which has ambitious plans for the future.”
“In current market conditions, the best opportunities for real growth often come from quality niche delegated authority business and I’m looking forward to building out these prospects with DA Strategy’s growing client base.”
