This episode’s guest is a journalist’s dream. He has deep, long and broad industry experience, he is very intelligent, he has very strong and clear opinions about how insurance works and why he is doing what he is doing.
More importantly he is never afraid of expressing those opinions and he does so with great enthusiasm and charisma.
Even better for us is that he has a new role heading a company that plays in one of the most interesting hard markets anywhere in the world.
He is Andrew Robinson, the company is Houston International Insurance Group (HIIG) and the market is US specialty lines.
HIIG is the business founded by maverick industry entrepreneur Stephen Way in 2006 after leaving HCC, so Andrew has some big shoes to fill.
I don’t need to pre-empt what we talk about here – the market and how Andrew wants to position HIIG within it are plenty to be getting on with and he won’t leave you with any doubt about what he thinks about all the issues of the day.
