According to Ironshore Excess Casualty Head Diana Cossetti, the integration will help brokers and buyers access total solutions from a single provider.

She said: “Aligning our operations on an admitted vs. non-admitted basis, as well as distribution channel, allows our dedicated underwriting teams to build strong relationships with our respective business partners, while enhancing our ability to provide products that better match the evolving risk transfer needs of the insured and broker.”
