McGill and Partners, the global boutique specialist (re)insurance broker, has expanded its reinsurance offering with office openings in Hannover, Germany and Zurich, Switzerland, further strengthening and supporting its strategy to develop its specialist reinsurance broking capability to match its European clients’ needs.
These new offices will focus on facultative reinsurance and, as with all teams at McGill and Partners, they have deep expertise to tackle a broad range of reinsurance solutions.
Paul Summers, Partner and Head of Facultative Reinsurance, said, “These new offices are an exciting development for McGill and Partners as a whole, but especially for the facultative reinsurance team. By opening offices in Zurich and Hannover, we will be closer to the capital providers and to our reinsurance clients in the region, ensuring we are able to be nimble and create solutions and service propositions for whatever circumstance clients require.”
McGill and Partners’ German team will be led by Ulrich Moeller, who has over 30 years of experience, has worked for Guy Carpenter, Aon, Junge and Hannover Re. Nicklas Heger will also be part of the team and was previously at Guy Carpenter designing and placing high-profile European reinsurance risks.
The team in Zurich includes Antonio Simone, who joins from Guy Carpenter having previously spent 24 years at Swiss Re; Vito Modugno, who has also worked for Guy Carpenter and Swiss Re, and Arjan Tichelaar who also joins from Guy Carpenter having previously been at Aon.
Steve McGill, Founder and CEO of McGill and Partners, said: “We are excited to be expanding our European reinsurance offering and increasing our presence in the reinsurance market on the continent of Europe. We have become known for our talent acquisition strategy and as we build these teams, we will continue to carefully handpick the right colleagues. The German and Swiss teams are led by local industry experts with decades of knowledge and experience to support our European reinsurance growth strategy. I’m excited to see what success we can achieve in the coming months and years.”
McGill and Partners now has a presence in the UK, US, Bermuda, Australia, Ireland, Germany and Switzerland. The new offices build on the success of our current platform and come after three years of strong international growth for the firm, including significant talent acquisition.
