Kiln is establishing an office in Frankfurt, just a year after its Paris office opened its doors.

The Lloyd’s of London insurer has appointed Marcus Zapfe to head the new operation; he comes with over twenty years of insurance industry experience, most recently at Ace, where he was regional marine underwriting manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The Frankfurt team will focus on marine insurance, and in particular a number of specialist classes where Kiln has proven technical expertise and can offer high levels of capacity.

They will provide an on-the-ground service directly to brokers, and have full underwriting and claims authority for principal lines of business.

Commenting on developments, Kiln regional managing director for Europe, Olivier Terlinden, says: “The German market is highly sophisticated and therefore well suited to Kiln’s focus on niche products.”

He adds: “The new office in Frankfurt will service the whole territory with underwriting decisions also taken in Germany.”
