Chaucer has appointed Jonathan Bint as political risk underwriter and analyst.

He joins from XL Catlin, where he had been part of the credit and political risk underwriting team. He has over two decades of financial markets experience and has worked with underwriters, regulators and rating agencies in the field of credit analysis.

Bint has been recruited to help drive Chaucer’s expansion of its political risk and trade credit product range alongside Deborah Wyatt, head of emerged markets, who joined Chaucer in March to spearhead the development of the political risk team’s solutions for emerged markets.

Nick Kilhams, head of political risk and trade credit at Chaucer, comments on the hire: “With Jonathan on board, our emerged markets team is now fully in place and open for business. Jonathan is an excellent political risk analyst and in partnership with the team, at Chaucer we can now provide brokers and clients with comprehensive solutions for all their political risk and trade credit needs.”
