Global specialty (re)insurer Canopius has launched a medical malpractice business.

In addition, the firm has hired Ashley Moulton as healthcare underwriter.

The medical malpractice business at Canopius will underwrite a combination of international healthcare risks. In particular, it will focus on the US market.

This market is primed for new entrants, and I am confident that clients and brokers will benefit from Ashley’s service-focused approach, the new capacity and Canopius’ recognised long term commitment to every class we enter.”

Ashley Moulton said: “Canopius is the ideal home to build a new healthcare portfolio. The growth across the business has been exceptional and its talent and strategy are compelling. With rates hardening and the market adapting to a number of carriers reducing capacity, it is an exciting time to launch a new division at an innovative organisation like Canopius. I am confident our new healthcare business will quickly grow from strength to strength.”
