Mosaic opens New York office

15th October 2021 - Author: Katie Baker

Specialty insurer Mosaic Insurance has opened an office in New York City, which will accommodate members of Mosaic’s cyber and transactional liability lines, along with technologists, and finance executives

The startup already has cyber and transactional liability underwriters based in Chicago, and other key employees in Los Angeles, Boston, and Virginia.

Backed by private-equity firm Golden Gate Capital, Mosaic launched as a next-generation global specialty insurer February 4 this year, with new Lloyd’s Syndicate 1609 as its centerpiece and a focus on select, complex lines of business.

The company’s hybrid structure will comprise underwriting hubs in Bermuda, London, Europe, the US, and Asia, to offer capacity and custom service to clients in leading markets.

Co-Founder & CEO Mitch Blaser commented: “As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I am thrilled to celebrate this milestone as we open an address that spearheads our North American distribution ambitions.

“Global syndication of our specialty underwriting expertise—matching local distribution with Lloyd’s of London security—is core to the model of Mosaic, and North America is paramount to its success. We’re excited to join the New York City corporate community and proud to be here.”

Co-Founder & Co-CEO Mark Wheeler commented: “New York represents a momentous step for Mosaic; in this, our first year, we will underwrite more business from the US than from all other countries combined.

“An integral part of the value proposition for Mosaic’s syndicated capital and consortia partners is our differentiated business model and focused access to pure specialty business from regional markets across the globe. This, combined with leading edge data and analytics, represents true competitive advantage.”
