Liberty International Underwriters Europe (LIU Europe), a division of Liberty Mutual Group, has appointed Matthew Hogg as vice president to lead a newly established Strategic Assets division that will develop and underwrite a range of specialist risks including intellectual property, reputational risks, cyber insurances and non-material damage business interruption*.

Matthew Hogg joined LIU Europe in January 2010 and is based in London. He has a global remit for Liberty International Underwriters to underwrite these specialist risks, which will complement many existing lines of business.

Hogg joins from Marsh where he spent two years as ‘Europe, Middle East and Africa Technology Leader’ establishing new business, products and engaging in client servicing. Prior to that he spent five years with a specialty insurer developing specialist risks products. He has a Masters in Law and Economics and is ACII qualified.

Commenting on the appointment Sean Rocks, LIU Europe’s Chief Executive said; “We are continually looking to broaden the scope of our offering into non-traditional areas of coverage and the appointment of Matthew Hogg will allow us to offer insurance for some of the newer risks that increasingly represent a growing exposure for many businesses.

Matthew’s exceptional experience makes him the ideal person to spearhead LIU’s global drive into these new areas of risk and we will look to grow the team over time.”
