Sompo Canopius adds credit & political risk underwriter

16th August 2017 - Author: Steve Evans

Sompo Canopius AG has continued to strengthen its credit & political risk team with the appointment of Stephen Pike as credit & political risk underwriter.

Sompo Canopius logoPike joins global specialty insurance and reinsurance firm Sompo Canopius in October and will report to Bernie de Haldevang, global head of specialty at the re/insurer.

He joins the firm from his most recent role at ED&F MAN Capital Markets as deputy head of specialty commodity finance, where he helped to establish a global trade finance business across Europe, South America, Africa and Asia.

Before that Pike worked at Cyrus Capital as part of a team managing a European credit fund. His career began at Merrill Lynch, where he worked in mergers & acquisitions and leverage finance.

de Haldevang commented on the hire; “Stephen has a reputation for being able to structure, analyse and assimilate complex deals across multiple sectors and geographies. He understands not only what is needed to bring in new business across four continents, but what it’s like to be a consumer of our products.

“This insight and expertise, combined with that of the rest of the team and in particular Tim Phillips, who joins at the end of August, will allow us to develop stronger knowledge-based partnerships and enable us to better service, expand and tailor our offerings to this important client base.”
