Liberty’s French operation to add specie and to increase headcount

Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance, is to add four new lines of business, including fine art & specie, to its product roster. It will also increase the size of the French team.

Speaking at the AMRAE risk managers’ conference in Marseille, France, Kadidja Sinz, LSM’s Head of Continental Europe, confirmed that LSM would roll out four new lines of business in France: surety, fine art and specie, contingent risk and terrorism.

All four products will be launched during Q1 2018, with ten new roles being created during the year. Kadidja Sinz said that “by growing our offering with new specialty lines, we’re firmly on course to be among the best specialized insurers in each of the European countries in which we’re active. France is our largest operation in this area and will continue to offer brokers and their clients the most comprehensive suite of specialty lines.”
