CFC recruits senior industry figure to head the new IP division

CFC recruits senior industry figure to head the new IP divisionWe are pleased to announce our launch into the intellectual property market following the transfer of Munich Re’s intellectual property team led by Erik Alsegard.

Over the last few years, we have seen a growing demand from our existing client base for intellectual property rights insurance. Protecting IP assets and exposures is vital to any business, but particularly to start ups and growing businesses in the media, technology, life science and pharmaceutical industries. The addition of the Munich Re team is therefore a natural progression as it complements our existing offerings for these industries.

Commenting on his new role at CFC, Erik Alsegard said: “CFC has built a reputation based on its unwavering commitment to delivering remarkable products backed up by remarkable service. I have been really impressed with the efficiency of its underwriting operation and its global distribution. I am truly excited to be joining the CFC team and look forward to building a practice that is every bit as successful as CFC’s current areas of expertise.”
