Hiscox chief financial officer Stuart Bridges is to leave after 16 years with the Lloyd’s insurer.

He will join stockbroking firm ICAP as group finance director.

Bridges will stay at Hiscox until 31 August 2015, after the publication of the company’s first-half results in late July.

Hiscox chairman Robert Childs said: “Stuart has made a major contribution to the strategic and financial evolution of Hiscox.

“His steadiness under fire, particularly demonstrated in the aftermath of the terrible events of 9/11, testing hurricanes in 2005 and the financial crisis, has been of immense value to the group.

“He leaves with our sincerest thanks and we wish him every success in his new role.”

Bridges added: “While I am excited about my new role, I am sad to be leaving Hiscox and I will continue to follow the company’s success closely, both as a former board member and a shareholder.

“I wish the board and the company well, and will be fully devoted to the group until my departure in the summer.”
