Protean Risk unveils new fintech and payment services team
London-based insurance broker Protean Risk is showing off its versatility with a new fintech and payment services team.
Protean Risk, which acts as a broker for asset management, financial services, and technology firms, has appointed Tristan Sargeaunt as director of the new team.
The plan is to look for innovation opportunities in fintech, but the company says its “Fintech and Payment Services Unit” will also focus on insurance for cryptocurrency and digital assets.
Nathan Sewell, CEO, Protean Risk, says: “We have already launched a revolutionary product this year in PSD Bond and we want to continue to challenge the status quo, by providing our clients with access to innovative insurance solutions that are the best fit for them through our highly experienced team.”
Sargeaunt joins from Marsh where he was part of the financial institutions industry practice.
Charlie Cooper, account manager at Protean Risk, joins the unit with immediate effect and will report directly to Sargeaunt.
Protean Risk is a Lloyd’s broker and it has over 500 clients – ranging from start-ups to international corporations. It was founded in 2008.
