His proven track record of providing ideas and solutions to insurers and reinsurers and his long-standing client relationships make Stephan the ideal person to drive our business forward in Continental Europe. Our focus continues to be on an honest and consistent approach, underlying our desire to achieve the best solutions for our clients at all times.”
Canopius offers its clients and brokers capacity and leadership across most of the major treaty reinsurance classes of business. The reinsurance team provides truly global access through its home at Lloyd’s and network of offices across the time zones of the world in California, New York, Bermuda, Dublin, Zurich and Singapore.
