Fronting Partner of the Year

Our Financial Risks and A.R.T. department made the shortlist of Fronting Partner of the Year. The department, a market leader based in Brussels, provides for more then 20 years captive fronting services to our top Benelux clients. Recently, we established a department in France to extend this offer to the French market.

The Financial Risks and A.R.T. department differentiates itself by:

  • Out of the box thinking: we use a creative and pragmatic approach to support companies in finding solutions to non-traditional risks.
  • An offer combined with the technical expertise of our property, engineering, liability and marine branches, to provide a tailor-made and comprehensive service.
  • One-stop-shop service: our team of specialists ensure high quality service to corporate owners of captives, through the combination of expertise in finance, risk analysis and law.

We are proud that this unique approach has been awarded with the nomination for Fronting Partner of the Year. 

Captive Service Professional of the Year

Louis Michel Ernould, Financial Risks and A.R.T. Manager, made the shortlist of Captive Service Professional of the Year.

Louis Michel enjoyed a rich and diverse experience in the Finance sector throughout his career.

After graduating as a “Commercial Engineer” and serving in the Belgian army as Officer in Logistics, he joined the Chase Manhattan Bank as credit analyst and later worked as Corporate Banker for 10 years.

Louis was then appointed to Treasurer of a small Belgian airline as Treasurer, where he established a captive insurance company. In 1992, he joined Fortis Insurance as Treasurer before moving into underwriting as Head of the Financial Risks and A.R.T. department in 2002.
