Antony Hope joins as D&O underwriter

DUAL Corporate Risks has appointed Antony Hope as D&O underwriter to support its D&O book.

Hope joins from HSBC Insurance Brokers where he spent 11 years specialising in D&O and management liability in the FI and commercial sectors, both in the UK and Bermuda. After four years as a broker and account handler in the London market, Hope was seconded to the Bermuda office to assist in the broking of US and international business placed in to the Bermuda market, and to act as producing broker and direct client liaison for local Bermudian business, including the resident banks, investment funds, and commercial enterprises. Since 2005 Hope has been a director of HSBC’s D&O division, responsible for direct client servicing and placement of UK and European major risks.

Hope commented: “I always said it would have to be a special proposition that would lure me away from HSBC. DUAL Corporate Risks is a dynamic and growing company with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. It has an impressive pedigree with the backing of the DUAL International group, and it has some of the best expertise in the industry – it’s a strong and exciting team to be a part of.”
