Nuclear activities

Underwriting nuclear risk

Nuclear Syndicate 1176 is the world's leading insurer of nuclear risk. The Syndicate provides coverage across the nuclear fuel cycle, from raw uranium and nuclear fuel to the shipment and storage of waste, although most of the Syndicate's insurance exposures relate to power generation at nuclear power stations.

The nuclear team is Michael Dawson (head) and assistant underwriter Lynn MacDonald. [2]

Government meetings

In June 2010 Chaucer met with energy minister Jonathan Marland to discuss "nuclear issues". [3]
