Oneglobal Broking has launched a special risks unit, with Lloyd’s of London broker Price Forbes’ Alistair Fox heading up the new division.

The unit aims to go beyond the standard approach to political, security and terrorist attacks risks, to focus on delivering client-centric, bespoke solutions that will address the threats and challenges that businesses face.

Team leader Fox, whose appointment will become effective on 1 September 2021, will report to Oneglobal Broking group chief executive Mike Reynolds.

Fox has had a distinguished military career, where he worked as colonel in the army. He was also awarded the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) award for services to counter terrorism, as well as the Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) accolade for his service in Syria.

Prior to this, he was head of security risks at Price Forbes and deputy chief executive of the credit, political and security division at insurance company Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT).

Reynolds said: “Oneglobal continues to build capability in segments where our expertise can offer real value to clients – special risks is such an area.

“I’m pleased to have attracted such an experienced and knowledgeable leader as Alistair to develop and grow our special risks team.

“His ability to develop new solutions and support clients is critical in enabling businesses to operate in some of the world’s most challenging environments and I look forward to working with him.”

Fox added: “Oneglobal’s commitment to serving clients is a key differentiator in the market, with an absolute focus on clients.

“I’m looking forward to getting started and building out Oneglobal’s special risks capability.”

Founded in 2018 following the merger of the SSL and Endeavour insurance broking houses, Oneglobal is a specialist international broking company that focuses on the placement of open market and delegated authority business across marine, aviation, property, casualty and specialty lines.
