Nexus CIFS, part of independent specialty MGA Nexus Underwriting, has hired Ed Cornish as senior underwriter on the single situation trade credit team.

Cornish joins from Beazley, where he was responsible for writing single situation credit, contract frustration and political risk business. He has over 10 years of experience in the specialist insurance market having held roles both as broker and underwriter in various firms including ANV Managing Agency, Finpro, Chubb and XL Catlin.

“We are very excited about Ed’s arrival and his addition to the single situation team will enable us to diversify our book further into areas we previously haven’t explored. I am confident that Ed will prove to be a valuable addition and great fit with Nexus CIFS and the Nexus Group as a whole,” says Richard Marriage, managing director at Nexus CIFS.
