13th September 2010
Torus, the global specialty insurer, has been voted the top Marine and Energy underwriter in a survey of international underwriters and brokers conducted by Global Broker and Underwriter magazine.
Tim Fillingham, Torus’ UK Chief Operating Officer and Chief Marketing Officer said, “We have worked hard to establish Torus as a serious performer in the global insurance market so we’re delighted to be recognised by those we do business with. Our bespoke technical approach to managing complex risks with highly experienced people is clearly making an impact.”
At launch in 2008, Torus initially specialised in energy insurance backed by leading energy industry investor, First Reserve. It has since diversified to provide property, casualty and specialty insurance as well as reinsurance to a global client base diversified by risk class, market segment and geography.
David Message, Philip Sexton and Ben Wilson head Torus’ energy lines (Upstream & Offshore Energy, Onshore Energy, and Power & Utilities respectively). The specialty insurer launched its marine practice in April with the appointment of Global Head of Marine, Demian Smith.
