Rokstone Launches New Global Sports Portfolio
Rokstone, the Specialty MGA part of the Aventum Group, announced it has hired industry veteran Graham Amato to launch a new Global Sports Personal Accident portfolio.

The new entity will cover four primary risks: accidental death, permanent total disablement, temporary total disablement, and medical expenses and repatriation, providing some of the highest levels of cover in the market.

Initially, coverage will be available in the UK, Europe, and North America, with future expansion to Asia. Amato, with 35 years of industry experience, joins Rokstone from Worldwide Special Risks, where he was a senior underwriter on worldwide contingency and personal accident books. He has also held senior positions at Aviva, Interhannover, and HDI Global Specialty.

Amato plans to expand Rokstone’s presence beyond the sports PA market into niche areas such as eSports and developing embedded PA solutions for sports associations.

Gavin Dollings, Chief Underwriting Officer – Commercial at Rokstone, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Graham to the team and launch Sports Personal Accident, a great addition to our diversified range of portfolios which also includes our innovative Sports & Prize Indemnity. We have huge expertise in disrupting underrepresented markets with highly responsive wordings and high levels of capacity, as well as attracting the talent needed to drive growth in niche areas quickly. This is why we continue to be such an inspiring innovator in the MGA world.”

Amato himself commented: “This place is a breath of fresh air. There is a culture of all being in it together. The incredibly approachable senior team finds reasons to do things, rather than the other way around. They’ve resourced me properly; I can hit the ground running, and with the strong teamwork culture, I have access to lots of cross-over potential with multiple classes of business.”
