RFIB has expanded its presence in Eastern Europe with the opening of an office in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Galina Pakhomova has been appointed as chief representative for the country, joining the Lloyd’s broker from Allianz Kazakhstan, where she was managing director.

Previously, Ms Pakhomova was chief representative of insurance group ROSNO, based in Kazakhstan.

The firm’s international director, Peter Talbot, comments: “RFIB has over ten years’ experience of placing reinsurance treaty business on behalf of Kazak companies, handling all major classes of business, and we believe a local presence will allow us to provide greater support to our clients in this important region.”

He adds: “Working closely with the local insurance industry, we will seek to develop strong insurance capacity for local businesses across energy, construction, property and cargo and provide support in protecting against natural catastrophes.”

Last week, RFIB appointed Neil G R Baker to the role of divisional director, financial and professional risks.

Having over forty years’ insurance and broking experience, Mr Baker will be responsible for the production and placing of predominantly financial institution related risks into the London and overseas markets, with a particular focus on the Middle East and India.
