BMS Launches Global Healthcare Liability Unit, Led by Wendin From Carpenter


BMS, the London-based independent specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, announced the launch of a new global healthcare liability division with Rob Wendin as managing director.

BMS said the new division will provide solutions and guidance to healthcare providers and their insurers and access to BMS’ range of insurance, reinsurance and risk management services and products.


Wendin joined BMS in December 2023 and is based in London. Six additional team members have been hired, with more to follow, “making the team the largest and most experienced medical malpractice team in the London market,” BMS said in a statement.

Wendin, who reports to Andrew Wheeler, president and CEO at BMS Re, has experience across insurance, reinsurance, and healthcare during a career that spans more than 40 years.


Most recently managing director of healthcare at Guy Carpenter and before that a senior partner at JLT’s Healthcare Risk Partners and managing director at Marsh’s EMEA Healthcare Practice, Wendin is a respected veteran on healthcare liability and risk management issues and has worked in senior positions across the globe. He also established and led Allied World’s successful European Healthcare underwriting platform.

The division will focus on working with BMS’ clients to develop and provide access to new market capacity, innovative solutions and risk management advice, while providing advice and transactional services such as technical coverage issues for medical malpractice and associated liabilities.


Wendin and his team will work with BMS Re’s long-established treaty healthcare liability team – led by Clare Stenson.
