In 2017, French reinsurance giant SCOR decided to add marine insurance to its extensive specialty range.

Global head of marine for specialty insurance Gregory Delaisse has been involved from the start.

He began his marine insurance career at Standard Club, before a spell at broker Cap-Marine, then Louis Dreyfus Armateurs and AXA Corporate Solutions.

So far, the SCOR marine business has focused on hull and machinery, cargo and builders risk insurance segments.
