About William

I am an Energy Underwriter in the Marine, Energy & Specialty division. I joined Hiscox in September 2021. Prior to that I trained and worked as an Upstream Energy Underwriter in both the Lloyd’s and company market since 2014. At Hiscox I underwrite a variety of Upstream, Midstream and Renewable package policies as well as taking the lead on our Downstream Fac book. I have a degree in Russian & Italian and have been ACII qualified since 2018.

Outside of work I enjoy exercising, playing squash and cooking for family and friends.


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.
