Lockton Re launches global mortgage and structured credit segment

Lockton Re has launched a global mortgage and structured credit segment co-led by Sean Hannah and Joe Koebele.

Hannah and Koebele will work closely with the Lockton Re global team, including the London-based specialty division led by Paul Upton, to drive the mortgage and structured credit offering.

Hannah has been a part of the Lockton Re team since 2020. As a credentialed actuary and broker, he has been pivotal in the development of Lockton Re’s analytics platform as well as its deployment to better serve clients and markets.

Prior to Lockton Re, Hannah led the build-out of the global mortgage and structured credit analytics capability at Willis Re.

Koebele recently joined Lockton Re, bringing several years of reinsurance broking experience, specialising in mortgage and structured credit solutions.

He was most recently senior vice president at Guy Carpenter, having spent the first part of his career in investment management across multiple asset classes.

Commenting on the announcement, Lockton Re North America CEO Nick Durant said: “We are excited to introduce our mortgage and credit offering to the market. Our growth story continues to be backed by the needs of our clients and the deep expertise of our team.

“With Sean and Joe at the helm, we will offer a unique platform rooted in technical knowledge and market experience that will drive meaningful value to both clients and (re)insurers.”

Keith Harrison, CEO, international at Lockton Re, added: “Our expertise and dexterity in working together as a global team allows us to bring so much more to our clients. We develop creative and focused programs to meet our clients' unique needs.”
