Ms Shane said: “It is tremendously exciting to be joining Aspen at this unique time in its journey and I look forward to helping build an outwards reinsurance programme that moves from strong to powerful.”

Aspen also said its Outwards Reinsurance team is being realigned to work with the Aspen Capital Markets team under the leadership of Mr Tobben and that the new team will be known as Aspen Capital Partners.

Mr Tobben said: “Bringing outwards reinsurance together with Aspen Capital Markets will help us deliver on our growth strategy while increasing collaboration and optimising our capital position. The combined team will capture efficiencies from overlapping process and benefit from leveraged expertise.”
