“”I fell into this industry after leaving college when I couldn’t spell legacy and reinsurance! It turned out to be a fortunate move and I have been able to work in a fantastically commercial environment that has taught me a huge amount – not just technically but about people too.

The sector really promotes innovation and finding creative solutions to what often seem like insurmountable and impossible problems. It has given me fantastic experiences and I’ve been lucky enough to work all over the world including secondments to Bermuda and the United States.

I joined IRLA as I was curious about finding out if there were other people who felt how I felt about this industry – and there were quite a lot of them!  IRLA has done a fantastic job in enhancing the reputation of the legacy market and it has been great to be on that journey with others who really feel passionate about run-off. The market continues to develop in many ways – types of business involved, territories etc and I think IRLA and its Young Professional Group are doing a great job at showcasing the sector and the great careers that can be had in dealing with legacy issues.”
