HDI expands US Equine Insurance Operations


Industrial insurer HDI Global (HDI) initiates major expansion in the equine insurance sector by appointing a team of 9 industry experts, including Dianne Meisner as specialized Lead Equine Underwriter.

Mark Edwards, Head of Bloodstock and Equine and Ian Snow, US Equine Lead, welcome Meisner and the team to the Lexington, KY based office. With this team of 7 underwriters and 2 claims adjusters HDI’s clients now benefit from a collective experience of over 300 years in US equine operations.

“Our enlarged team has a strong background in Equine and possesses vast knowledge across multiple disciplines”, says Edwards. “Especially with equine, being close to the clients’ field of operation and their needs makes a huge difference. Many of our team members are active participants in the sport and have a respective education in this field. Some even have experience in world renowned equine hospitals. Our clients and partnering agents will surely profit from this high level of expertise.”

HDI launched their US based equine product offering back in 2019, providing Full Mortality and Major Medical coverage for breeds and uses across the full spectrum of the equine industry.
