Bill O’Farrell, Group Chief Executive Officer of Premia, said: “This is Premia’s fourth major transaction at Lloyd’s since acquiring our Lloyd’s Managing Agency and syndicate in 2020 and we have the team, scale and appetite to do more. Delivering successful run-off solutions to participants in the vibrant Lloyd’s market is a core part of our business and it is a pleasure to add such an historic insurer, that traces its history back over 120 years at Lloyd’s, to our client roster.”
