The insurance can be accessed through the Bermuda office

Torus Insurance announced a $50m excess liability capacity which can be accessed through its new Bermuda office.

Commenting on the announcement, David Perez, Torus’ president and chief underwriting officer Global Casualty said: ‘Our capacity can respond in virtually any class of business and comes when clients are looking to diversify their programs as well as source additional capacity.’

He added: ‘At a time when many established casualty markets are experiencing a significant intellectual capital drain in the underwriting sector, and buyers are developing new opinions of carrier acceptability, we have created a premier capacity alternative to address this fundamental shift in our industry. In this environment, the value of customer relationships and communication has never been more important, and with a highly experienced team, we’re well placed to demonstrate the benefits which working with Torus can deliver.’
