Mosaic hires Finn McGuirk as SVP, Head of Political Risk

18th May 2021 - Author: Katie Baker

Specialty insurer Mosaic has appointed Finn McGuirk as Senior Vice President, Head of Political Risk.

An experienced Lloyd’s of London specialty underwriter, McGuirk will be responsible for building the class of business, one of seven lines the new insurer will underwrite globally through its Lloyd’s Syndicate 1609.

He holds just under 25 years of experience in the political risk market, initially as a broker before moving to underwriting.

Most recently, he was head of the political risk and trade credit accounts for Pembroke Syndicate 4000 at Lloyd’s and headed similar divisions at AXA ASR and CNA Hardy.

Previously, he worked for Chaucer Syndicates and Berry Palmer & Lyle.


Co-CEO Mark Wheeler commented: “Escalating economic stress and social unrest caused by the pandemic mean the risks associated with cross-border exposures and investments have never been greater.

“The complex nature of political risk insurance demands deep market knowledge, so we’re very proud to welcome someone of Finn’s exceptional underwriting talent in this field to our team.”

McGuirk added: “It’s a privilege to join a forward-thinking company like Mosaic at a time when political risk is increasingly affecting clients in volatile regions.

“The negative fallout of COVID-19 on economies and lives worldwide means this class of insurance will play a growing, vital role in helping emerging markets leverage inward investment to recover.”
