R&Q Commercial Risks Services will underwrite commercial combined, liability and property

Randall & Quilter (R&Q) is launching a UK managing general agency, headed up by a former HSBC Insurance Brokers director.

The MGA is called R&Q Commercial Risks Services, and will underwrite commercial combined, liability, property owners and package insurance products to selected brokers in London and the regions. Capacity is provided by a European insurer.

James Wheddon, who was responsible for the creation of the commercial division at HSBC Insurance Brokers’ intermediary marketing practice, leads the MGA.

R&Q is also launching R&Q Risk Services Canada, a commercial underwriter with capacity provided by three Lloyd’s syndicates. It will underwrite professional liability and management liability coverage.
