Novae is to write a new international liability after hiring two underwriters from rivals.

Mark Davies will join from Limit where he is a class underwriter for international liability, while Rupert Taylor joins from Ace Europe where he currently writes a heavily US-focused liability book.

The pair will write a book of international liability business which will complement Novae's current UK and European employers' and general liability book.

Novae has set a provisional start date of 1st April for the pair.
