AEGIS London, the UK based subsidiary of AEGIS (Associated Electric & Gas Insurance Services Limited), has entered into a reinsurance treaty business, by appointing Chris White as the property treaty underwriter, reporting to John Chambers, deputy active underwriter and head of specialty lines.

Most recently, Mr White has served at Odyssey Re where he spent the last ten years underwriting property treaty reinsurance business, and also direct and facultative reinsurance and retro. Prior to that, he held positions in casualty underwriting and claims within TIG Reinsurance, Imperial Fire and Marine Reinsurance and American Reinsurance Company (UK).

David Croom-Johnson, active underwriter of AEGIS, said: “A strong theme of AEGIS London over recent years has been the addition of new, complementary lines of business to create a balanced and diversified portfolio.

“Moving into reinsurance treaty is a continuation of this strategy and we are fortunate to secure the appointment of Chris White whose experience will be invaluable to us as we grow this new area of business for AEGIS London.”
