Casualty & General Insurance Company (Europe), a liability cover specialist has opened a new representative office in London as part of its plans to further expand business particularly its casualty account in the UK.

According to the company, the new office will be led by director Andy Moulsdale, who will focus on developing relationships with UK insurance brokers.

Moulsdale was quoted by Insurance Insight as saying that the company wanted to establish closer cooperation with the UK brokers, particularly smaller, regional firms.

"Ultimately, our plan is to convert this new representative office into a full branch office," Moulsdale added.

Prior to joining Casualty & General in 2007, Moulsdale managed an Essex-based underwriting agency.

Established in 2003, Casualty & General has grown steadily and profitably, writing business in the UK and French markets with focus on providing liability cover for all industries, including high hazard risk professions, along with tailor-made solutions for schemes business.
