Chaucer adds to new international liability division

Lloyd's insurer Chaucer has appointed Ian Noble as professional indemnity class underwriter for Chaucer Syndicate 1084.

Noble will join Chaucer in November to lead the professional indemnity account of Syndicate 1084’s new international liability division.

This new initiative is due to launch in the final quarter of 2010 headed by Mark Lawrence.

Noble is currently under notice as professional indemnity class underwriter at Brit Insurance, where he is responsible for their professional indemnity non-US business.

John Fowle, active underwriter for Chaucer Syndicate 1084, said: “I am delighted that Ian has agreed to join our new International Liability Division.

"Ian is a well known and highly respected figure in the Professional Indemnity market and, together with Mark Lawrence, will provide us with the expertise and knowledge that we require to build a market leading underwriting team for International Professional Indemnity."
