I joined Hiscox from QBE, where I was the Directors’ & Officers’ Liability Product Leader. Before underwriting I practised as a corporate and regulatory lawyer working in London, having read law at Oxford University. Hiscox brings new capacity to a specialist market – London written Management Liability (D&O) with US risk capability – with a highly analytical approach to underwriting and claims. Underwriting in this area involves staying on top of current affairs, economics, stock market as well as litigation trends and legal/accounting developments: it is challenging and interesting. Outside of work I can be found on a ski slope, on a clay pigeon range, in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, or on a track in a flimsy British kit car.
