The new portfolio will launch with A-rated capacity

Managing general agent (MGA) Rokstone has announced that it will be expanding into the sports personal accident market.

The new portfolio, which is back by A-rated capacity, will include tailored and Lloyd’s-approved wordings for a range of sports, including motorsport, golf, tennis, football and other sports.

The wordings will cover accidental death, permanent total disablement, temporary total disablement and medical expenses and repatriation.

Rokstone will initially provide policies across the UK, Europe and North America and later expand into Asia.

Gavin Dollings, commercial chief underwriting officer, said: “We have huge expertise in disrupting underrepresented markets with highly responsive wordings and high levels of capacity, as well as attracting the talent needed to drive growth in niche areas quickly. 

“This is why we continue to be such an inspiring innovator in the MGA world.”


To help launch the portfolio, Rokstone has appointed underwriter Graham Amato.

Amato joins Rokstone from Worldwide Special Risks, where he was a senior underwriter on worldwide contingency and personal accident books.

During his 35-year underwriting career, he has also held senior positions at Aviva, InterHannover and HDI Global Specialty.

“This place is a breath of fresh air,” Amato said.

“There is a culture of all being in it together. The incredibly approachable senior team find reasons to do things, rather than the other way around.

“They’ve resourced me properly, I can hit the ground running and with the strong teamwork culture I have access to lots of cross-over potential with multiple classes of business. Rokstone is an MGA like no other – the dynamism and momentum is infectious.”
