JH Blades and MS Amlin strike energy liability underwriting partnership

Houston-based wholesale broker and managing general agent JH Blades has signed a master underwriting agreement with re/insurer MS Amlin.

The new facility will focus on upstream oil and gas liability risks, with clients being onshore and offshore operators that have fully operational extraction facilities in the US and abroad. It will use JH Blades’ tailored policy wording.

“MS Amlin will work with J.H. Blades to source and underwrite a new general liability and (up to) $10 million excess liability book on their behalf,” the MGA said.

Jules Samuel, head of natural resources at MS Amlin, said that “we have worked with the team at Blades for many years, and we know they have the insight, relationships, and infrastructure to grow this new facility, quickly”.
