July 5 2017 by InsuranceAsia News Staff

Lloyd’s has appointed Robert Childs as deputy chairman, replacing Paul Jardine, who retired from the role earlier this year.

Childs, a non-executive chairman of Hiscox, joins two other deputy chairmen of Lloyd’s, the body that is responsible for the management and supervision of the Lloyd’s market.

The other two deputy chairmen of the Council of Lloyd’s are Simon Beale and Andy Haste.

The council is responsible for ensuring that the Society of Lloyd’s acts in accordance with Lloyd’s Acts 1871 to 1982 and complies with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

Childs said the appointment is an opportunity for him to bring his 44 years of industry experience to the Council of Lloyd’s.

Childs joined Hiscox in 1986 where he was the active underwriter of its Lloyd’s Syndicate 33 between 1993 and 2005.
