Alliant Insurance Services Inc. said Tuesday it would launch a reinsurance brokerage division, Alliant Re.
The reinsurance division will provide products and services including facultative insurance, automatic and semi-automatic reinsurance structures, deductible buy-downs, captives, managing general insurers and individual risk placements and programs, the Irvine, Calif.-based broker said in a statement.
In a separate statement, the brokerage said Nicholas Ambriano has joined Alliant Insurance Services as vice president, managing director, Alliant Re, in New York and will expand the new division’s staff.
He was most recently managing director in New York for Aon PLC, where he oversaw national facultative reinsurance operations, according to the statement.
Alliant also displays a number of job postings on its website for discretionary reinsurance positions, including account manager, account manager, account manager and others in both New York and Chicago.
