Hiscox appoints group head of catastrophe research


Hiscox has named Shree Khare as group head of catastrophe research.

Khare will lead the research that directly informs the company’s own view of risk and its underwriting strategies for catastrophe perils, working closely with Hiscox London Market and Hiscox Re.

He will also manage catastrophe analyst research carried out around the group; developing the insights that support value added partnerships with brokers, clients and modelling firms.

In his new role, Khare will report to Rob Caton, head of underwriting risk and reinsurance at Hiscox.

Caton said: “Developing our own view of risk is an essential component of our underwriting strategy across the group, particularly in well established catastrophe lines where tough market conditions continue to pose a challenge.”

He added: “Shree Khare’s expertise is a welcome addition to our catastrophe risk capabilities and I look forward to introducing him to clients, brokers, and the Hiscox team.”
