Specialty Lloyd’s broker Tyser has announced the launch of its Bermuda-based affiliate and appointed its Managing Director of Reinsurance, Richard Tomkins, to lead the new operations.
Tomkins has relocated from London to Bermuda and becomes Managing Director of Tysers Bermuda.
He has over 30 years’ experience covering both mainstream and specialty areas of the insurance broking space.
“I’m excited to build the Tysers Bermuda office. Tysers Bermuda will provide access to additional insurance markets for our independent broker relationships globally,” said Tomkins.
“We see particularly attractive opportunities that will complement our specialty focus in both insurance and reinsurance, along with providing additional capacity for our clients globally, where other markets are not responding to the demand.
“Overall, this will provide our clients with the best possible solutions. We are also actively seeking to build our broking capabilities and expertise in Bermuda to match our needs as we grow the office”.
Jason Collins, Co-Head of Tysers, added, “Tysers sees the expansion of the office in Bermuda, to serve its worldwide clients, as an important part of our overall strategic plan.”
“Our commitment to Bermuda is demonstrated by moving Richard, an important leader of Tysers, to lead this new venture. He has supported the growth of our London business over the last 13 years and is the ideal person to execute this part of our strategy.”
As a result of the move to lead Tysers Bermuda, Nick Harrap will become the new Managing Director of Reinsurance for Tysers.
