AXIS Re, the reinsurance division of global specialty re/insurer AXIS Capital, has announced the hiring of Emilie Hungenberg in Zurich, who’s most recent position had been as a Senior ILS Underwriter with investment manager Schroders.
Hungenberg worked for Schroders for more than two years, underwriting private insurance-linked securities (ILS) transactions and collateralised reinsurance from the asset managers home base in Zurich, with a focus on transactions in Europe, Bermuda and the Lloyd’s market.
Hungenberg has joined AXIS Re as a Senior Underwriter, Property, EMEA & Latin America, based in Zurich.
The new role will see her responsible for underwriting a Property treaty reinsurance portfolio focused on France, Benelux, Iberia and Africa.
She will work alongside the underwriting team responsible for each region, helping to further develop and execute AXIS Re’s underwriting strategy.
“We are delighted to welcome Emilie to AXIS Re,” Gino Smith, Head of Property, EMEA & Latin America at AXIS Re commented. “She brings a strong technical underwriting background spanning short and long tail lines of business, as well as an extensive commercial network throughout the region. Emilie’s experience and expertise will further enable us to deliver on AXIS Re’s promise of providing agile, solution-oriented services to our clients and brokers.”
Before her stint at Schroders, Hungenberg held increasingly senior roles in reinsurance underwriting and client management with RMS, MS Amlin, Sompo and Odyssey Re.
