It is no secret that the insurance industry is ageing. According to a 2015 report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, 22.6% of the financial and insurance industry workforce are aged 50 and over, and more than a quarter of those are over 60. More than ever before, the insurance industry is focused on recruiting fresh talent. While that task can seem insurmountable at times, this year’s crop of Young Guns proves it’s anything but.
To compile our inaugural Young Guns report, we asked you, our readers, for your nominations and also reached out to the top UK insurance companies and brokerages to uncover the following selection of 30 impressive young men and women who have already had a signifi cant impact in just their first few years in the industry.
Despite being 35 and younger, these individuals are emerging leaders in their companies and are rising quickly into influential roles. Applying their diverse backgrounds to the needs of the insurance market, the 2016 Young Guns have the world at their feet as they attain new heights in and out of the office.
Whether they’re brokers, underwriters or company leaders, their contributions and efforts are inspiring peers and mentors alike – and paving the way for a bright future for the next generation of insurance professionals.
