About Marilize

I joined Hiscox in January 2022, as a Senior Underwriter in the D&O team.  I started my career in insurance with Hiscox in 2008, so it is fantastic to re-join the company and to see some familiar faces.  I have worked in the insurance industry for over 13 years with my first underwriting role being in Professional Indemnity in 2009 (at another insurer) and then moving over to D&O in 2014.  My role requires me to underwrite publicly listed companies within pharmaceutical, technology, mining and transportation sectors and continue to build strong relationships with our brokers. 

In my spare time I like to keep fit by attending barre and yoga classes.


In an unprecedented directors and officers claims environment, partnering with a strong and trusted insurer who understands your risk has become more important than ever.
