Edwards has over 40 years of experience in the Lloyd’s market, most recently at Syndicate 4444.
“Paul has in depth knowledge of the catastrophe reinsurance markets and many years of practical experience of underwriting throughout all phases of the reinsurance cycle,” said Richard Williams, the active underwriter for Cathedral Syndicates 2010 and 3010.
“Paul’s expertise will further enhance our ability to meet the needs of our clients and the broking community and Cathedral’s long standing reputation for excellence of service,” Williams added.
