Thomas Miller pounces for Navigators’ P&I business

Insurance giant Thomas Miller has moved to take over Navigators Management’s fixed-premium protection and indemnity business in a deal likely to close within the next month.

“This is a logical and progressive step for Thomas Miller Specialty, enabling us to create scale in a competitive market, whilst focusing on the specific and complex servicing needs of clients,” said Guy Pierpoint, CEO of Thomas Miller Specialty.

As with most other sectors relating to shipping consolidation is happening within the P&I sector, with more acquisitions rumoured to be in negotiation to be carried through in 2018.
