Commenting on the transaction, Ken Randall, Chairman and CEO of R&Q said: “We are delighted to have reached agreement with Hamilton in respect of the run-off of their legacy Sportscover business. The collaboration with Coverys Managing Agency and AXA Liabilities Managers provides R&Q with strong partners for assuming legacy Lloyd’s business and we look forward to completing further transactions in the future, building on the recent successes here and with Prosight.”

AXA Liabilities Managers Chief Executive Officer Sylvain Villeroy de Galhau commented: “We are very pleased to have teamed up with Coverys Managing Agency and R&Q to complete our first deal at Lloyd’s. This deal enables us to establish a presence at Lloyd’s that we look forward to developing.”
