Duncan Spencer has worked in environmental engineering and insurance for 30 years, splitting his career equally between engineering, underwriting and, most recently, broking.
He established EDIA as an independent broker focused exclusively on the use of insurance to manage environmental risks. Now in its tenth year, EDIA has developed a valuable network of clients such as developers, property owners, local authorities, regulators and industrial operators, as well as trusted advisors including consultants, remediation specialists and lawyers.
Working with underwriters, Spencer continues to assist in the development of the market, pushing the scope of cover available and creating unique solutions to the challenges that clients face. EDIA distinguishes itself from the competition by applying various methods to clearly communicate these solutions, enabling clients to understand the role of insurance in supporting their transactions.
Spencer feels a sense of fulfilment when the products he arranges allow otherwise difficult risks to be insured so that customers can manage potential environmental threats.
