Appointed new member to its DUAL Focus team

DUAL Corporate Risks, a directors & officers and professional indemnity underwriting agency for mid-market companies, has appointed Liz Hanlon to its DUAL Focus team.

The company claims that its DUAL Focus provides specialist insurance solutions for complex financial institution based risks.

Liz Hanlon with 20 years’ of industry experience is expected to bring additional expertise to the existing suite of DUAL Focus products and adding a new range including Bankers Blanket Bond and Computer Crime. Ms Hanlon joins from Argo-Heritage where she developed a diverse, mid-market financial institutions portfolio.

Tim Bilborough, an existing member of the DUAL Corporate Risks underwriting team will be working with Ms Hanlon as part of the DUAL Focus Team. Beth Whybrow also joins them from Argo-Heritage as assistant underwriter.

Russell Kilpatrick, executive chairman of DUAL Corporate Risks, said: “Since its launch in April, DUAL Focus has gone from strength to strength with demand well exceeding expectations. Liz’s appointment will now secure the next phase of our development strategy for this account. She brings with her an enormous amount of experience and is very well regarded in the industry. The bolstering of the DUAL Focus team will allow us to optimise these products and enable us to enhance the service we provide to our clients.

“The new products which Liz will introduce will make DUAL Focus one of the leading financial institution portfolios available in the market.”
