During my time in healthcare liability, I worked on the data from some of the biggest claims the market had experienced over a period of five years and coded it so that we were able to spot developing trends. This project went towards a publication called ‘finger on the pulse.’ It was a report demonstrating the types of cases that produce the largest claims as well as analysing the market by state jurisdiction in the US, as well as the rise of social inflation.
As an underwriting graduate, working in the dynamic Lloyd’s of London market is a unique experience. Listening to face-to-face conversations between brokers and underwriters allowed me to develop my knowledge effectively. I have also been studying for my ACII which is the main insurance qualification in the London market. Brit highly encourages people to take part in various courses offered by the Lloyd’s Market Association or alternatively attend lectures and market updates in the Lloyd’s library.
Now I am assistant underwriter in Brit's Energy team, I work in a very technical and underwriting-heavy class of business, handling accounts with extremely high values. I have been involved in developing the energy portfolio in the renewable business space. We have been able to transfer our existing expertise into this market, it has been exciting to learn about this cutting edge and ever evolving technology, as well as the risks associated with it. Supporting our clients as they tackle the challenge of energy transition has been a fascinating experience.
