XL Insurance, the global insurance operations of XL Capital, has opened a new regional office in Boston, US.

The new office will provide insurance agents, brokers and their clients in the region local access to XL Insurance’s property, casualty, professional and specialty insurance coverages.

XL Insurance has recently announced the appointment of David Molitano to a new Boston-based underwriting position to help clients address technology error and omission risks. In addition to northeast business development executive Thomas Carroll and Mr Molitano, key contacts in the new Boston office include environmental underwriting and industry relations advisor David Oldow, senior property underwriter Neil Finn, and excess casualty underwriting manager Thomas Nosek.

Dennis Kane, COO of XL Insurance for the Americas, said: The city offers XL Insurance ample opportunities to help businesses across many industries discuss their insurance needs with underwriters who are very familiar with their industry-specific risks and the coverages that can most effectively manage them. This new office boosts XL Insurance’s physical presence in one of our key markets and puts our underwriters closer to our clients.
