BIBA 2018 Q&A: Rob Wadey, Head of Casualty

14 May 2018

With BIBA fast approaching, we’re catching up with members of the Barbican Protect team from our London and Manchester offices as they prepare for one of the industry’s biggest conferences – some are BIBA veterans, others first timers.

Rob Wadey - Head of Casualty

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?

BIBA is a fantastic opportunity to speak directly to the regional broking community in order to better understand their needs. I am looking forward to discussing Barbican Protect’s capabilities and, in particular, promoting our standalone liability offering.   

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 do not think there will be any sizeable change in the UK insurance market in terms of rating levels, despite worsening underwriting results. I believe it’s likely that there will still be an abundance of capacity which will keep the market depressed.

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

 The conference presents such an excellent opportunity for making new contacts, building relationships and meeting with key members of the sector. My advice is to not miss out on these opportunities. Plan who you are going to meet, have a clear message and make sure to follow up after BIBA.

 

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

 Resting and recharging by way of a BBQ in the garden with the family and a couple of cold beers!
