Ep 44 Juan Andrade of Everest Re: An Underwriter’s market

Today’s guest is a bit of a coup for the Voice of Insurance. He is the CEO of a $13bn top 10 reinsurance and specialty insurance group that spans the full length of the insurance value chain.

Yet despite being a public company of great scale, until now it hasn’t had much of a public profile.

It’s previous CEOs were notoriously publicity-shy but that’s about to change.

Juan Andrade has been in post since January and is starting to give Everest Re a public profile that befits its size and relevance to our market.

Here we have a full discussion of the state of the industry, changes in what investor appetite and how this is driving what Juan describes as an underwriter’s market.

We talk about the class of 2020 and its prospects and of course the immediate and potential effects of Covid-19 and how Everest is positioning itself within all of this to take full advantage of market conditions.

Juan is a concise and precise communicator and the next 20 or so minutes are packed with valuable information and insight. I highly recommend a listen.
