Ep 67 Charles Mathias Group CRO Fidelis: A market not lacking capital, but profit

This week’s guest is a longstanding and integral member of one of the most successful underwriting teams in the specialty insurance and reinsurance world.

Charles Mathias was an original member of staff at Lancashire and is now a core member of the team at Fidelis.

As Chief Risk officer and board member he has total visibility of Fidelis’s strategy and here he doesn’t duck any questions.

I was surprised by how open he was with me about which segments of the market the now capital-loaded Fidelis is finding most attractive as well as its approach to developing proprietary technology.

Again he is completely transparent about the special culture and work ethic that has made Richard-Brindle led carriers so distinctive, and so successful in the past 15 years.

This longstanding market practitioner is also incredibly polite and good humoured company.

All this makes this episode one not to miss for anyone who wants to learn the secrets of underwriting success in the hardening market of 2021.


Charles refers to a charitable foundation, he is of course referring to the Fidelis Foundation.
