Specialty re/insurer Inigo Limited has hired Jane Bennett to lead its newly established Financial Institutions team, which sits under the firm’s Casualty and Financial Line.
For more than two decades, Bennett has held similar roles at ACE (later acquired by Chubb) and Faraday, bringing a wealth of experience as an underwriter.
In her new role, she will oversee Inigo’s entry into a new sector offering D&O, professional liability, and crime cover as the lead underwriter.
Under Bennett’s leadership, a new team will be created to add further depth to the company’s Casualty and Financial lines teams which launched in the first quarter of 2021.
The team will write primary and low excess across financial institutions worldwide, notably in the U.S., UK, EU, Australia, and Canada.
Bennett joins from her most recent role at Howden Insurance Brokers where she was a Senior Advisor.
Craig Knightley, Head of Casualty and Financial Lines at Inigo, commented: “We are absolutely delighted that Jane is joining Inigo to expand our industry focus and broaden our offering for D&O, whilst adding professional liability and crime. This exciting new line of business offers Inigo significant opportunity and is underpinned by demand from clients and brokers for leadership in this incredibly diverse industry group.
“Financial Institutions are at the heart of a dynamic global economy; we are committed to supporting them in their challenge and ambition with fresh capital and helping our major broking partners navigate a shifting marketplace.”
