Kiln has launched a new liability unit to underwrite and support general liability risks.

The new product line will initially focus on writing primary and excess business in the open market, as well as supporting the insurance and reinsurance group’s position in the binding authority field.

Led by Chris Jones, it will operate with a $25 million line size, writing across all business sectors for risks domiciled in all territories worldwide, excluding the USA.

Sectors include: onshore energy; utilities and telecommunications; contractors and construction industry; single project construction; mining and natural resources; manufacturing; chemicals; railways and transportation; sports and leisure; property owners, and hotels and real estate.

Mr Jones joins Kiln from D.A. Constable Syndicate 386 (part of QBE) and Kiln is currently recruiting further members of the team, which will form part of the property and special lines division of Kiln Syndicate 510 at Lloyd’s.

Commenting on developments, Syndicate 510 head, Robin Hargreaves, says: “This is a real step-change for Kiln as we take our significant expertise in the short-tail market into this exciting new field.”
