M.I.A, based in Genoa, is a new underwriting agency which focuses on Marine Hull and Cargo business. It is controlled by the wider Cambiaso Risso Group, an insurance broker and shipping agency, in operation since 1946.

In collaboration with HDI Global Specialty SE - Italy, M.I.A will act as the wholesale agent, offering risk capacity to brokers, initially targeting Hull and Cargo business placed locally.

The agency is led by Sergio Revello, who has extensive experience in the international Marine sector, across both broking and underwriting roles, some on behalf of Lloyd’s syndicates. He will be joined by Massimo Garbarino and Mario Rocca, who both previously worked at the Generali Group.

General Manager of our Italy branch, Paolo Volpi, commented “This venture will develop the HDI Global Specialty Marine portfolio, combining our innovative approach to risk solutions with Cambiaso Risso’s global network of relationships and specialist technical expertise, developed over their 70+ year history.”

Established in March 2020, M.I.A is approved by IVASS and has already started writing business on behalf of HDI Global Specialty SE – Italy.
