I joined XL Group in 2003 to develop the company's fine art and specie business in Europe. My team and I serve a variety of clients, including most major watch-makers and jewelry manufacturers.
I started my career as an insurance agent, before moving to the New Reinsurance Company in Geneva (Swiss branch of Munich Re) where I spent the first two years writing treaty reinsurance for Spanish and Portuguese clients. After that I worked for five years in the specialty department, underwriting jewelers block, general specie, cancelation of event (sport and entertainment), price indemnity and over-redemption
