Meet Will Morris - Director of Underwriting Delegated Authority
I’m responsible for the underwriting and technical result of a broad book of UK, US, and International Delegated Authority business. Lines of business include P&C, E&S business, Legal Expenses, Cyber, Pet, SME, and other niche lines.
I spent 25 years in the London Market across a variety of roles. Initially focussing on casualty underwriting, both direct and treaty, I then moved into client management and increasingly senior management roles. Prior to HDI Global Specialty, I was the Head of Underwriting for Nuclear Risk Insurers in London.
I hold an LLM from Durham University and an MBA from London Business School, and I’m also an Associate of the CII.
Meet Jade Wilcox, Underwriting Manager – US Delegated Authority
I began my insurance career in 2004 and recently joined HDI Global Specialty as Underwriting Manager for US Delegated Authority. I have previously worked across multiple lines of business, on a worldwide territory basis, always specialising in the Delegated Authority space. With previous tenures at MGA’s, broking houses, and capacity providers I have been fortunate enough to gain an indepth understanding of the market functions as a whole.
My role at HDI Global Specialty is to deliver a diverse US portfolio. Along with the immediate and wider team, we look forward to developing existing, and forming new relationships, which encourage our partners to achieve their ambitions.
Meet Jack Hennebry, Underwriter – US Delegated Authority
I began my insurance career at Fusion Underwriting Agency, writing packaged UK commercial property. 7 years ago, I joined HDI Global Specialty, with the last 3 working in the US Delegated Authority team.
I look after a number of cover holders, writing commercial and personal lines property, as well as short-tail transportation business.
We write a blend of catastrophe and non-catastrophe exposed business with a view to working with cover holder’s long term.
A proven track-record over a number of years, data sophistication, and qualitative underwriting are all characteristics we would seek in any prospective relationship.
Meet Rachael Zacharow, Underwriter - US Delegated Authority
I began my insurance career at Navigators, working on the US D&F & Binder Property Team, later moving with the team to Vibe Syndicate. I have always worked in the US Property Market and have been working exclusively in the Property Delegated Authority Market for 3 years.
We look to collaborate closely with our agents to create long-term relationships that are mutually beneficial to both parties.
