London: 8th April 2021 – Carbon Underwriting Limited (Carbon), the specialist, independent managing general underwriter (MGU), announces today the appointment of Giovanni Schiattarella as an Underwriter within its growing underwriting team.

Giovanni will focus on expanding Carbon’s existing General Liability and Property books of business as well as new business development across Europe.

“I am always pleased to welcome new talent to Carbon and Giovanni’s wealth of international broking experience will bring fresh ideas and expertise to our growing business. Europe represents an important part of our strategy and our focus remains on value, not volume, whereby we partner with the strongest and most dynamic market players. I am delighted that Giovanni has joined us and I look forward to working with him as we continue to evolve our data-driven underwriting capabilities to deliver sustained profitable growth.”

“I am delighted to have joined Carbon and to be working with such a talented and forward-thinking team. The markets in Europe represent an opportunity to develop our existing books of business and new business development and we plan to do this in a measured way with a sharp focus on data-driven underwriting discipline. Our aim, with the support of advanced technology, is to be recognised as a lead market for both European GL and Property Coverholder business. I am looking forward to using my extensive experience of European insurance markets and strong network of contacts to expand Carbon’s presence across the region.”
