The Experts

Nicolas Jugé
Transport / Cargo Development Director
“No man is an island. I have always believed we are part of a bigger picture. As a fresh graduate, I was sure of one thing: I wanted to be part of the maritime industry.
20 years into the marine business and 10 years as head of FORSEA’S, which I have founded, I feel the same way. My role as a Marine Insurance Broker is ever-evolving. While Underwriters price the risk, and Claims Handlers see a claim through until its settlement, I ensure adequate insurance coverage for our clients.
Seeing the bigger picture is important. What is also important to me is that I deliver what I promised at the end of the day.
Maritime is indispensable, marine risks are becoming cross-cutting and complex while marine insurance is the oldest insurance in the world. I am proud to be part of this changing world within Delta assurances Group.”
