Lamer returns to join IQUW's Bermuda office

Rene Lamer is back in Bermuda, this time with specialty re/insurer IQUW’s new reinsurance operation.

IQUW is developing the underwriting and operational capabilities of its Bermuda platform, bringing in Mr Lamer as managing director, underwriting and operations.

He will report to Stephen Young, who recently joined IQUW as head of reinsurance and CEO Bermuda.

Before joining IQUW, Mr Lamer worked at Endurance and Sompo in a variety of roles including leading the US Cat Treaty and Asia Pacific Treaty underwriting teams before becoming chief executive of Sompo International Singapore Reinsurance where he led and managed the Singapore office from 2014.

Mr Lamer said: “I am thrilled to join IQUW to help build out its Bermuda operation.

“The opportunity to join an organisation in the early stages of development, with a clear vision to build a profitable and accretive set of underwriting entities alongside a high-calibre team is very exciting and one that I’m delighted to be part of”.

Mr Young said: “Having worked with Rene for almost 20 years, I know he will be an invaluable part of the IQUW reinsurance team.

“His broad-based, global background in traditional and non-traditional reinsurance, strong broker and client relationships and technical expertise will be critical in building a relevant, profitable, diversified reinsurance portfolio and will be a huge advantage to IQUW”.
