Rattner Mackenzie has formed a new trade credit and political risk team which will be providing broking services to UK and global corporations.

The team, all previously at Aon, comprising Rupert Murray (broking director), Barrie Watson, Steve Taylor (senior brokers) and Genevieve Ahinful (broker), benefits from considerable experience in all areas of trade receivables risk, its management and insurance, says Murray.

“This experience will be used to support companies as they conduct international trade,” he says. “The team is keen to encourage companies to take a fresh look at the products available in the trade credit and political risk insurance market and how the added benefits of those products can assist companies in growing their sales, improving capital gearing, and increasing their profitability, alongside the provision of balance sheet protection.

“Rattner Mackenzie is confident that through the use of innovative and selectively targeted solutions, the team will differentiate itself using its mix of enthusiasm and expertise to provide the client with the quality of services it requires.”

Rattner Mackenzie is a wholly-owned subsidiary of HCC Insurance Holdings. HCC has assets exceeding US$7bn and is rated AA (very strong) by Standard & Poor’s and A+ (superior) by AM Best Company.
