A major global Insurer is seeking an experienced technical Underwriter in their Financial Institutions team who write UK and international (non-US domiciled) business, predominantly on a primary basis.

The Team

The team has a varied portfolio of D&O, PI, Crime, EPL and PTL business, ranging from SME to corporate. In terms of sectors they cover asset management, banking, insurance and stockbroking etc. They deal with the global Brokers as well as smaller Brokers and are keen to expand their relationships. With regards to culture they are a collaborative team with a strong team spirit which is fostered right down from senior management. Working from home is going well for them, so flexibility and trust will be in place beyond this period.

The Role

The appointed candidate will analyse reports and accounts and review proposals in order to underwrite UK and international FI risks. Building relationships with Brokers and providing them with excellent service is a key part of the role as well as attending Broker events to generate new business. As a senior member of the team, the successful individual will take referrals from more junior members of the team and assist with coaching and mentoring.

The Person
Applicants will ideally have a proven background in FI underwriting coupled with relationships skills and a trading mentality. Brokers may possibly be considered if they can demonstrate the right aptitudes. If individuals can bring different Broker relationships this would be a bonus. Experience in coaching/mentoring and in emerging markets would also be highly desirable.
