Mining Insurance

Mining is critical to enabling the global energy transition and drive towards net zero targets. Our specialist Mining team provides bespoke property insurance solutions based on our in-depth technical understanding of the specific risks and exposures present at each of our mining insured’s operations.

We underwrite worldwide with a focus on Africa, Australia, and the Americas, and cover businesses operating within the full spectrum of the mining industry across all metals and minerals and all types of mining be it underground, surface mining, or in-situ.

We work with our Inigo colleagues in complementary lines of business such as D&O, Political Violence and Terrorism, General Liability, and Cyber, to provide a full range of insurance solutions to our clients.

Intrinsic to our underwriting capabilities is an unrivalled claims experience which sits at the centre of our Insurance and Reinsurance expertise.

James Fryer

MINING UNDERWRITER

London, United Kingdom

I joined Inigo in June 2023 to develop a specialist mining property book.  I had done exactly the same thing at the Hardy Syndicate in 2017 but wanted to do so at Inigo because I bought into the unique culture, innovation, and fresh thinking that is exemplified here.  I have specialised in underwriting mining property and construction lines for the last 12 years and prior to that had been involved in heavy industry, mostly international business. With a background in chemical engineering, I started in insurance as a risk engineer which enabled me to travel to some of the most insalubrious but interesting parts of the world. Having spent some time as a loss adjuster in the noughties, I have found Underwriting to be the capturer of my heart. In addition to my duties as an underwriter at Inigo, I am the chairman of the Mining Insurance and Risk Association, a global organisation of individuals and companies involved in mining, risk, and insurance.

MINING UNDERWRITER

I work as an Underwriter in the specialist mining team. My London Market insurance career started at Canopius. From there I spent six years writing a global mining, power and heavy industry portfolio at Starr Companies. Most recently I spent a year at a Lloyd’s start-up writing technical lines which gave me the taste for the enjoyment involved with developing a new book. I like working with mining clients to build long-term relationships and to find unique solutions to their varying and unique insurance needs. Outside of work I enjoy most sports and was on the founding committee of the Lloyd’s Netball Club.

HEAD OF FIRST PARTY & REINSURANCE CLAIMS

London, United Kingdom

e: [email protected]

I joined Inigo in November 2023 bringing more than 20 year’s experience in the Lloyds claims market. I have in recent years held senior claims roles at Ki/Brit, Pioneer and Arch with a strong focus on all 1st party classes. I am proud to work with underwriters who see the claims value proposition in order to retain and grow their wider business. I am also keen to promote the claims function of a syndicate as a great career choice to younger entrants to the London insurance market. In my spare time I like to watch most sports (Tottenham Hotspur when they win) and get on my Peloton for a workout at every opportunity.

FIRST PARTY CLAIMS ANALYST

London, United Kingdom

e: [email protected]

I made the switch from personal lines broking at A Plan Insurance, just after the pandemic to join Inigo as a First Party Claims Analyst in March 2022. I specialise in open market Property D&F, Political Violence and Terror, Onshore Energy and Mining claims. My aim is to learn from the claims experience and collaborate with Underwriters to provide informed decision making, based on the real world examples that support the underlying data. With a range of knowledge built up in a relatively short time in the Lloyd’s Insurance Market, I bring management experience in previous client facing roles to engage and rally the insurance market to provide the best possible outcome.
