Adam Atkins, Portfolio underwriter, technology, Hiscox
Following Hiscox’s objective to pioneer a sector approach for its client base by setting up a dedicated team to service technology clients, Adam Atkins was tapped as one of the key team members to help launch this project. Despite having just two years of underwriting experience, Atkins’ ability to balance the commercial and technical sides of insurance and come through with solutions that are satisfactory to all parties has made him an invaluable asset to the team. Currently, Atkins is the biggest new-business underwriter by GWP for Hiscox UK & Ireland.
An innovative team player, Atkins has been instrumental in developing and delivering a training programme for new team members. He is also part of a working group for a fintech proposition from Hiscox. Fully committed to a career in insurance, Atkins is close to completing the requirements for ACII, and he devotes his free time to helping a local school with reading classes.
