About James

I am a Cyber Underwriter at Hiscox London Market, responsible for our facilities book.  My responsibilities range from backing traditional MGAs and Lloyd’s coverholders through to building long-term partnerships with insurance companies and white-labelling our Cyber products.  

I am a qualified actuary, and began my career at Hiscox in our Specialty division where I priced programs coming into our Alternative Risk team.  Prior to joining Hiscox, I was an consulting actuary, where I advised Lloyd’s syndicates, MGAs and government institutions on topics ranging from mergers and takeovers through to detailed reserving reviews and legacy portfolio transfers.

I graduated from the University of Bristol with a degree in Mathematics, and outside of work I enjoy skiing, watching rugby, and unsuccessfully playing golf.


Hiscox CyberClear365 is just that…clear. With simple, unambiguous policy wordings, clients know what they are buying, what they are covered for and have peace of mind that they are supported throughout the life of the policy, 24-7/365.
