BIBA 2018 Q&A: David Burridge, Property & Package Underwriting Manager

14 May 2018

David Burridge – Property & Package Underwriting Manager

Q) The BIBA Conference has really established itself in the industry, attracting greater numbers of attendees each year. What are you most looking forward to about BIBA 2018 and what are your objectives in attending?

I’m looking forward to seeing the volume of brokers who will be visiting BIBA. The numbers seem to increase every year.

 My objective is to meet as many brokers as possible and discuss our underwriting solutions for the manufacturing, retail and leisure sectors.

Q) Competition remains fierce in the market, what is your take on the shape and structure of the market by 2020 and the issues/challenges that it faces?

I’d be surprised if we see a hard market anytime soon.  

 I believe that pricing will remain competitive, with an increase in online transactions. Insightful risk management and claims handling advice will be even more important than it is today. 

Q) In such a crowded event, what are your tips for those attending for the first time?

This is my first BIBA, so I’ll happily take onboard any tips on offer - I’m really looking forward to getting the full conference experience!

Q) So, after a hectic BIBA 2018, what is your ideal weekend to relax and recharge?

The weekend after BIBA is the FA Cup final and also my birthday, which I am looking forward to celebrating.
