The newly established trade credit insurer Equinox Global has appointed Sarah Winstone as a senior underwriter, due to join on April 1.

In her new role, Winstone will be joining a team specifically focusing on developing the portfolio in the UK and at an international level.

Winstone was previously a key account manager at Coface UK, responsible for multinational account relationships across various sectors, including the management of all bank and finance-related policies.
