Six appointed to LMA Claims Committee

The Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) has appointed Nick Sinfield, Group Head of Claims at Tokio Marine Kiln; Sheel Sawhney, Group Head of Claims at Brit; David Miller, Chief Claims Officer - International & London Markets at XL Catlin and; Tony Rai, Head of London Market Claims at Hiscox, to the LMA Claims Committee (LMACC).

Simon White, Head of Claims at Apollo Syndicate Management Limited has been re-elected and Simon Catt, Head of Claims at MS Amlin has been elected to Committee. The LMACC provides leadership and direction to the Lloyd’s claims community and advises the LMA Board on strategic claims matters.

All six appointments commenced 31 January 2017 and will serve two year terms.

LMACC priorities for 2017/8 include: working with Lloyd’s and the market to assess the potential benefits predictive analytics and robotics could offer to claims handling and adjustment in terms of cost reductions, service improvements and other efficiency gains; and continuing to work with Lloyd’s, the IUA and LIIBA on the Single Agreement initiative that could support a reduction in the number of London agreement parties for low value claims where London carriers (Lloyd’s and non-Lloyd’s) participate.

Lee Elliston, Manager, Claims and Delegated Authority Operations, LMA said: "I would like to thank Ashley Lawrence and Sharon Long for their contribution to the LMACC, both of whom have completed their term. I would also welcome and thank our new members for their willingness to participate in the LMACC. The LMACC will continue to promote the position of claims in the London market whilst creating opportunities to enhance the Lloyd’s claims offering and provide service excellence".
