Starr Insurance Companies today announced the appointment of insurance investment veteran John Patin as senior investment officer, effective March 30. Mr. Patin is responsible for managing the diverse asset portfolio of Starr’s insurance operating companies.
Mr. Patin has spent most of his 20 years’ experience managing investments for insurance enterprises, including most recently Allied World Assurance. He previously was a principal at a hedge fund of funds spun off from Moore Capital Management, the global macro hedge fund he joined in 2001.
“John brings key skills in the important category of alternative investments as well as in traditional insurance asset allocation,” said Maurice R. Greenberg, chairman and chief executive officer. “Having someone of his caliber will help keep Starr moving forward on the investment side of the business in parallel with the underwriting side.”
Mr. Patin is based at Starr’s New York headquarters.
