FOUNDER AND CHIEF UNDERWRITING OFFICER
With 25 years’ experience in the insurance sector, my career spans broking, underwriting and launching an insurtech, Kinsu, in 2017. I am the former Managing Director of Hiscox London Market. Having joined Hiscox in 1997 as a reinsurance underwriter, I spent my next 16 years in senior positions, including Active Underwriter for Syndicate 33. Before my time at Hiscox, I was a reinsurance broker at Greig Fester. Since 2015, I have served as an Independent Non-Executive Director of RenaissanceRe Syndicate Management. Previously, I was also Chair of the LMA’s Reinsurance Business Panel and served on the Non-Marine Committee.
I am a Treaty Underwriter in the Reinsurance team, which provides lead capacity to Property and Specialty businesses worldwide. I have particular focus on the International Property and Specialty portfolios. My outside interests include tennis, tai chi, yoga, and playing classical and acoustic guitar.
I am a member of the Reinsurance leadership group, and involved in the underwriting and management of our property treaty account. Our particular emphasis is on business emanating from both the US and Caribbean regions. Outside of reinsurance, I harbour a ludicrous aspiration to open my own restaurant.
I am one of the underwriters in the reinsurance team. In addition to my underwriting role, I run our Insight team. I’m interested in how we can use data science, earth science and technology to improve our products. When I can, I like to get outside on skis, paddleboards or bicycles.
As a Reinsurance Underwriter, I analyse, price and negotiate terms and conditions on Property Treaty business, with a particular focus on North America. Having begun my career as an Actuary, I also assist with the building and development of our in-house reinsurance pricing tools. Away from work, I enjoy watching and playing sports, and currently play netball for my local team. I’m also interested in architecture and love exploring new cities around the world.
I work within our Reinsurance team as an Assistant Underwriter, focusing mostly on US Property Treaty. We are focused on understanding what’s important to our cedants and brokers, and how we at Inigo can best support them. In my free time, I love kickboxing and I’m a huge animal lover. I have a very lazy cockapoo whose worst nightmare is to go for a walk.
As an Underwriter on our Reinsurance team, I focus on International Property and Specialty lines. Before joining Inigo, I worked on the Broking side and use this experience to help us better understand our clients’ and brokers’ needs, and ensure we provide a high-quality service. Outside work, I love travelling and immersing myself in different cultures. I spent three years living in Sapporo, Japan where I learnt a great deal, including learning to speak Japanese.
