About Riaz

I joined Hiscox in the summer of 2021 as the Line Underwriter for Energy which incorporates Oil & Gas (Upstream, Midstream & Downstream), Renewables and Power. I’ve worked in the Insurance industry for just over 20 years. I started out in Bancassurance in Dubai before moving to London in 2006 which also marked my entry into the Energy line. Prior to Hiscox, I was at Chubb for a decade where I was Product Head of the Energy division at Chubb Global Markets. As the Energy Line Underwriter, my main goals are to develop and manage Hiscox’s Energy solutions to support our clients, the wider industry and the market as it undergoes a major transition towards a more sustainable future.

 Cricket is something I enjoy watching and playing outside of work. As I was born in India, it was only natural that I I spent most of my early days playing the sport. It also helps that the Indian team are currently riding a wave of success. Over the past few years, I have also developed a passion for horse racing and my ideal summer day out would be at our local racecourse in Goodwood. Since becoming a father to two hyper-energetic boys, I do not have as much free time as I used to – however I wouldn’t change it for the world.
