Liberty Specialty Markets rebrands its reinsurance division and appoints Massimiliano FANTINI to head its newly created Italian division

Massimiliano FANTINI will head the newly established Italian operation of Liberty Mutual Re, the rebranded reinsurance division of Liberty Specialty Markets.

The rebrand is effective immediately and encompasses all aspects of LSM's reinsurance division, which incorporates 180 people in 14 locations. The newly-named business has created a local Italian operation based in Rome and Milan, which will begin trading immediately. Massimiliano FANTINI, ex country manager for Italy of Guy Carpenter and previously CFO of Swiss Re Italy, became Liberty Mutual Re's General Manager Reinsurance for Italy. The Italian reinsurance team will write property, casualty and specialty business.

Dieter WINKEL, president of Liberty Mutual Re, said: "The launch of our Italian business is a key step in our plans to grow Liberty Mutual Re's business. We're extending our global footprint while building on the close relationships we've already developed with clients and brokers in Italy.

"In Massimiliano FANTINI, we have found a talented and highly-respected reinsurance professional to lead our Italian team. He also brings with him a wealth of contacts and local knowledge, which will be extremely valuable as we reach out to the Italian market. Massimiliano's mission is to provide a first-class service to Italian insurance companies, with a complete range of reinsurance products both on a proportional and non-proportional basis."

Commenting on the rebranding, Dieter WINKEL said: "By rebranding as Liberty Mutual Re, the sole treaty reinsurance business within Liberty Mutual Group, we can be very clear about the benefits that our financial strength offers while highlighting the breadth and depth of our offering. Our rebranding signals our intention to leverage the Liberty brand and emphasize the sheer strength of the balance sheet on which the Liberty Mutual Group is founded. This is just the start of the process."
