Ep 61 A healing market: James Vickers, Chair Willis Re International

Today’s guest is one of the industry’s most experienced and most respected reinsurance brokers with an incredibly broad and deep perspective to share on the industry.

His broking house Willis Re is always first out of the blocks after the major renewal dates with its first view reports into the state of the reinsurance market

Given the exceptional nature of this particular renewal I was delighted to have some time with James Vickers Chair, Willis Re International.

We spoke at length about the hardening market, the impact of the class of 2020 and of course the potential costs and all the coverage issues surrounding Covid 19.

James is an exceptionally clear-thinking and eloquent commentator so I highly recommend the half hour conversation that follows.

And do make sure you accompany this podcast with a read of Willis Re’s 1.1.21 First View Report which they have entitled Firming Landscape.
