About James

I joined the Energy Team as an Assistant Underwriter in 2021. I work across all aspects of the Energy portfolio as it continues to expand and diversify from Upstream Energy into Renewables and Power Generation. Prior to this, I graduated from the University of Exeter with a BSc in Economics & Geography, before joining a graduate scheme at Allianz where I trained as a Junior Underwriter on Engineering and Power lines.

Away from work I like to stay active by playing football, squash and golf, as well as travelling and exploring new places!


Losses in the energy industry – whether property or liability related – can have a significant impact on balance sheets, demanding a robust, comprehensive and swift insurance response. We work hard to bring that insurance comfort to our clients.
