London, 8 June 2023: Dale Underwriting Partners (DUP), the trading name for Dale Managing Agency Limited’s Lloyd’s Syndicate 1729, has announced the appointment of Daniel Prendergast as Senior Underwriter, Accident and Health (A&H), as part of Dale’s drive to capitalise on new business opportunities in the sector.

Dan has 15 years’ experience in the Accident and Health markets, and he joins from RSA, where he was a senior A&H Underwriter. He previously wrote Professional and Financial Risks, and he reports to Head of Specialty Insurance at Dale, Martin Lawson.

“We are delighted to welcome such an experienced underwriter as Dan to Dale at a period when our Accident and Health portfolio is growing due to strong market demand in the post-COVID environment,” said Martin. “As travel begins to return to pre-COVID levels, employers need to look carefully at their duty of care to staff when they are travelling, which is creating challenges for them but also opportunities for specialty insurance businesses such as Dale.

“Dan’s appointment is part of a wider Dale strategy of cross-selling and offering a broader range of risk services across the specialty space at Lloyd’s.”

“I am really excited to be joining Dale at such a period of growth in A&H space,” said Dan. “There is a lot of evolving complexity around wordings for travel policies, and the team at Dale is well positioned to provide the kind of expert advice that our broker partners need to service their clients well.”
