Canopius Group Limited (“Canopius”), a leading specialist insurance underwriting business, today announces the appointment of Tim Rolfe as Head of UK Retail Strategy.

Reporting to Jim Giordano, the Group’s Chief Underwriting Officer, Tim will be responsible for designing and implementing strategy for this increasingly important part of Canopius’s business. Tim joins Canopius from UK General where he was Chief Executive. Previously he was with the Aviva group for 24 years and performed a variety of roles including the establishment of distribution strategy for Norwich Union.

Michael Watson, Chairman said: “I believe that Tim’s expertise will be invaluable in helping us to develop a more customer-focused and cohesive strategy for our UK Retail insurance segment. UK Retail insurance is an increasingly important part of the business that Canopius underwrites. We are substantially the largest underwriter of UK household insurance at Lloyd’s, having written this class for more than one hundred years. More recently we entered the UK SME market selling combined property and liability package business through Arista Insurance Limited. In June of this year we expanded our range of products through the acquisition of specialist motor insurer KGM. Altogether we underwrite more than £200 million of UK Retail business and it represents nearly 30% of Canopius Group’s total premiums. I look forward to Tim’s contribution to our UK business.”
