New risk management unit is ‘important step’, says Cooper Gay

Cooper Gay has launched a new integrated risk management trading unit called Cooper Gay European Markets

The new platform will combine expertise of Cooper Gay’s 20-strong team in Hamburg, Paris and London.

It will cover risks such as property and terrorism, as well as liability insurance and reinsurance risks.

The team will place wholesale insurance and facultative reinsurance business in the European and international markets, including Lloyd’s and the London company markets.

Cooper Gay’s global office network will provide access to capacity outside Europe.

Cooper Gay’s head of business, European markets, Malcolm Harvey, said: “This is an important development in Cooper Gay’s strategic expansion of its strong non-marine offering in Europe.”
