As claims manager for XL Group’s fine art, jewelry and specie specialty business, Natasha helps XL Catlin’s specialty insurance clients – which include museums, private collectors, corporate collections, jewelers, mining, cash-in-transit operations, and others — address physical loss or damage to highly valued property and possessions.
She manages claims that can range from damage to a one-of-a-kind painting to stolen gems to an armored car heist. Natasha’s responsibilities also include addressing the businesses’ reinsurance, financial reporting, reserving and compliance requirements.
Natasha joined XL in July 2004 from AXA Art Insurance Companies where she served as Claims Analyst and Legal Advisor and managed the resolution of complex fine art claims, which included supervising private investigations and retaining qualified conservators and appraisers. Prior to her position at AXA, Natasha worked in the legal department of Sotheby’s Inc. where she negotiated settlement, consignment and consulting agreements, benefit auction contracts and authenticity and title claims.
Natasha earned her Bachelor of Arts and her Master of Arts in Medieval History from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. She earned her Juris Doctor from Boston College Law School and is a member of the New York Bar.
