Kyle Burnett, AXA XL

Head of E&S property

During his 11-year career in insurance, Kyle Burnett has become known for his ability to create effective underwriting strategies and find optimal insurance solutions for his clients. Two years ago, he was instrumental in helping reinsurers overhaul their E&S property portfolios to better withstand market volatility, helping to lessen a potentially bigger impact to E&S business due to natural catastrophes. Burnett’s current focus is on building and maintaining a strong portfolio and taking part in a global team effort to help underwriting colleagues learn as much as possible from losses by developing guidelines, checklists and other tools to strengthen underwriting assessments.

Named to IBA’s Hot List and Young Guns list in 2018 and IASA’s Top 30 Under 30 in 2017 and 2018, Burnett is described by colleagues as “one of the hardest-working individuals you will ever meet. For everything people see, there is so much more you don’t.”
