ACE underwriter Richard Bayman appointed to head up new venture

Lloyd’s specialist insurer Argo International, a subsidiary of Argo Group International, is to begin underwriting general aviation insurance.

Former ACE aviation underwriter Richard Baymen has been appointed class underwriter to lead the new business line at Lloyd’s, which will be written within Argo International Syndicate 1200.

Julian Enoizi, chief executive of Argo International, said: "The addition of a general aviation account is a natural extension to Argo International’s specialist underwriting portfolio.”


Bayman has over 16 years’ experience in the Lloyd’s market and comes to Argo International from ACE, where he was aviation underwriter specializing in general aviation and hull war risks.

Previously he had been at Kiln for 13 years where he had underwritten an aviation account.
