elseco, the fintech specialty insurance underwriting platform headquartered at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), has significantly expanded its Aviation capabilities and book of business.

Industry leader Olivier Marre has been appointed Head of Aviation at elseco.

This latest development on Aviation lines allows us to continue to diversify our portfolios and offer best in class coverage to our clients. I am delighted to welcome on board Olivier who has an outstanding understanding of the Aviation Industry and its insurance needs.”

Marre remarked: “I am looking forward to developing the elseco Aviation book further.
