Annabel Fell-Clark, Head of Fine Art and Specie commented: “I’m excited to see our continued growth as we build a team of individuals with deep experience of the market and the products we handle. Lance's appointment further bolsters our Special Risks division and his expertise will ensure we keep delivering innovative solutions for our clients, using our profound knowledge of the Fine Art and Specie space, and wider insurance industry.”
