Zurich Global Corporate in North America has formed a strategic risk solutions group that aims to enable the insurer to more efficiently serve the needs of customers undergoing mergers, acquisition or divestiture, and those with non-traditional risk management needs.

Robert Curtis has been named head of the newly combined group in North America, with operations based in New York City.

The group combines Zurich’s New York-based mergers and acquisitions group with its existing structured solutions group and structured programmes group.

‘The M&A and private equity market has undergone significant change due to the global financial situation,’ says Michael Kerner, chief executive of Zurich Global Corporate in North America. ‘Zurich remains committed to this business and is sustaining its commitment through this combined approach that further sets us apart in this specialized marketing space.’

The new unit will coordinate resources for M&A, private equity and customers with integrated multi-year/multi-line programme needs

During Curtis’ tenure at Zurich, he worked in the SSG group as head of alternative risk underwriting. Prior to joining Zurich, he held positions with AIG Risk Finance, where he worked closely with its M&A units.
