September 07, 2017

XL Catlin's insurance operations recently announced the appointment of Owen Williams as Captive Center of Excellence manager.

Based in London, Mr. Williams will work with underwriters and XL Catlin's captive clients globally to deliver fronting services. He will report to Matt Latham, head of captive programs at XL Catlin.

According to XL Catlin's website, the company "offers captive fronting programs across a wide range of lines, including: General Liability, Employer's Liability, Workers Compensation, Property Damage and Business Interruption, Energy, Marine Cargo, Professional Indemnity, Construction, Fine Art and Specie and Environmental." XL Catlin can issue policies in over 210 territories and provides administration through a global information management system and a global claims system.

Mr. Latham said, "We have grown our captive business significantly over the past three years; establishing our Center of Excellence allows us to continue to deliver outstanding service for existing clients while growing our portfolio. Owen's stellar market experience ideally positions him to lead our Center of Excellence and I am delighted to welcome him to the team."

He added, "In recent years there has been a steady trend for clients to expand the range of coverages written in their captives beyond standard property and casualty risks, to include emerging risks such as cyber or non-damage business interruption. Strengthening our team and offering allows us to support these clients as they move forward."

Mr. Williams has over 20 years' experience in the insurance industry. He joins XL Catlin from Zurich Insurance plc, where he spent 11 years, most recently as head of captive services in the United Kingdom. Prior to joining Zurich, Mr. Williams held a number of underwriting positions at RSA Insurance plc.
