Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) announced today that as part of the next phase of integration and the business planning process between the Syndicate and Liberty Mutual Insurance Europe (LMIE), the Specialty Property Divisions’ Underwriting offering will be restructured and renamed "Worldwide Property" with the emphasis on enabling the growth of International Property business through the further development of the overseas office network and existing Syndicate Underwriting platform. Nigel Tatlock has been named as Head of Worldwide Property for the Specialty Division.

Increasingly international markets require local representation to access their business, whilst the client base requires a global solution for their insurance needs. This restructuring enables LSM to offer an enhanced Specialty property offering tailored to local market distribution.

Nick Metcalf, President and Group Managing Director of Liberty Specialty Markets said, “We are pleased to announce this change as it allows us to concentrate on developing our Property offering in the International arena whilst maintaining a Worldwide capability".

Matthew Moore, Chief Underwriting Officer for LSM's Specialty and Reinsurance Divisions said: "All our Specialty Property distribution channels, including a streamlined Specialty Property binders capability, will fall under this new division. This will create a better opportunity to develop and grow the book in our desired Markets through what is becoming an ever more competitive space".
