Wilde (pictured below) will report to Owen. Wilde joined the company in 2017 as a senior underwriter.
“Sam has expanded FRS’ non-payment offering and developed a number of our strategic initiatives, most notably project finance, asset-backed finance and capital markets,” said Srent. “Our clients and brokers will benefit from his technical expertise and commercial acumen.”
The Company also announced the appointment of Mia Jureidini (pictured below) as Political Risk Underwriter for its FRS business. She will be based in London and will report to William Limb, head of LSM’s political risk practice. Jureidini joins the firm from WTW, where she was a senior broker.
“Socio-economic issues fueled by the pandemic, increased foreign direct investment related to the energy transition and the post-pandemic recovery have boosted demand for the political risk product,” Limb said. “Mia’s knowledge, market experience and ability to build strong working relationships make her a valuable addition to our team.”
