RenaissanceRe Underwriting Managers U.S. will allow us to expand our market access to business that does not normally come to the Bermuda or Lloyd’s markets. David and our global specialty team will continue to build our portfolio of diversifying business employing our integrated system, and will remain closely coordinated across our multiple platforms.”
