Appleby acted as Bermuda counsel for Chaucer, the international specialty (re)insurance group, in the formation and licensing of its Bermuda Class 4 insurer and insurance agent.
Chaucer will operate as a Class 4 re/insurer in Bermuda, writing a range of US property, casualty and specialty reinsurance business. The launch of a new reinsurance branch in Bermuda will provide US clients with greater access to its specialty underwriting expertise and capacity.
"Bermuda is a key market and we are excited to be here," said John Fowle, Chief Executive Officer of Chaucer. "This move builds on our existing infrastructure as we aim to provide brokers and clients with smart underwriting solutions."
