The hardening market and the upcoming renewals, ILS, the vexing casualty question and of course the mega-brokers getting bigger - this interview doesn't miss anything out.
Jonathan Parry is a highly experienced and well-regarded underwriter with many decades of experience.
He knows the insurance and reinsurance markets inside and out.
If you don’t know him already I think you’ll like him – and you will learn a lot from him
He’s also quite a rare character in that he spent the first half of his career as a broker.

Jonathan is handing over the QBE Re underwriting mantle at the beginning of April and plans to retire next year.
