He previously served as president of Centre Re Bermuda, where he was employed from 1993 to 1998.

Rounding out the underwriting leadership team, SiriusPoint announced the following moves:

  • Jan Onselius, chief underwriting officer, International Reinsurance. Onselius is currently chief underwriting officer, Global Reinsurance, at Sirius Group in Stockholm.

“I am delighted with the exceptional team we have formed to lead SiriusPoint,” said Sankaran. “SiriusPoint brings together two companies with an abundance of talent, which is highlighted by these latest appointments. We have a strong leadership team of executives and underwriting talent from within and outside the existing organizations, each bringing outstanding credentials and experience to the business and culture we are building.”

Third Point Re expects to complete the previously announced merger transaction with Sirius International Insurance Group, Ltd. on or about February 26, subject to the satisfaction of the closing conditions.
