This year, Gracechurch is building on its highly successful London’s Leading Underwriters survey, to expand its performance benchmarks into reinsurance.
The World’s Leading Reinsurance Underwriters 2013 ranking will, for the first time, build those rankings across the globe. This will allow us to make comparisons between the way that talent is perceived between regions and different insurer operating models. This project is a work-in-progress, and will continually expand as we collect and publish more data in more insurance hubs and business classes.
The rankings are designed to exemplify and encourage conversations about the people and talent that operate in the underwriting sphere. Businesses use the detail behind our rankings to help them to evaluate the investment they make in high quality teams, and to develop programmes to ensure they recruit and retain the best talent. Our research shows that when people performance is aligned with ambition then businesses becomes more energised and success follows naturally.
Gracechurch is also expanding its Global insurance benchmarking studies to cover a wider group of stakeholders in both the underwriting and claims areas.
