Childs, currently non-executive chairman of Hiscox (HSX.L), will take up the position immediately, Lloyd’s said in a statement.

He will be one of three deputy chairmen, Lloyd’s added.

Childs “has a keen understanding of the challenges the market faces, but also of its strengths and what Lloyd’s can do to help it thrive and be successful,” Lloyd’s chairman Bruce Carnegie-Brown said.
