Perceptive Underwriting

Autumn 2017

New office in Cork, Ireland

July was a busy month with the opening of a new Nexus office in Cork following the establishment a branch in Ireland headed by Stephen Comerford in July 2016.

With over 15 years experience in Surety Bonds with Aviva Ireland and Campion Insurance Brokers, Stephen Comerford specialises in securing solutions for builders, developers and licensed service contractors in a market where many traditional surety players have ceased underwriting this class of business.

Stephen Comerford, New Business Development Manager – Ireland & UK, Nexus EBA, noted that: “The new office will give us an excellent platform to continue supporting the group, now one of the UK’S largest MGAs, and our surety capacity provider, AmTrust Europe Limited, an ‘A’ rated insurer, with whom we have direct access to decision makers with underwriting ability to deliver bonds within the timeframe required, all bringing stability and peace of mind to projects across all sectors.”

Nexus acquired EBA Insurance Services in August 2015 which enabled Nexus to offer an extended insurance product range that included Surety, Latent Defects, Construction and Casualty throughout Europe.
