NCG joint managing director, Jamie Newell, stated, “We are all very excited about entering into a relationship with such a highly regarded company with a proven track record of success. The financial strength and infrastructure resources U.S. Risk can contribute will enable NCG to consolidate and build on our position in the U.K. Professional Indemnity marketplace and assist in diversifying into areas where we currently consider there are significant opportunities.”

The arrangement has Randall Goss assuming the role of chairman with Jamie Newell and Neill Cotton as joint managing directors.
