Our aim is simple: to be the best platform for financial lines insurance in the business, serving high-quality clients of all sizes around the world.

To achieve this, we’ve built teams of market-leading underwriters across three product sets – Directors & Offices, Financial Institutions and Professional Indemnity. (We’ll publish more biographies as our team grows.)

We’re confident we have the technical expertise and credibility our clients and brokers need.

To add to that our data and analytics capabilities and intellectual curiosity and the groundwork is laid for long-term relationships that benefit both parties.

John Hopper

Head of Financial Lines

I’ve been in financial lines insurance since starting as a D&O underwriter at AIG in 1999. During my 20 years at the firm, I had various different roles and responsibilities – including leading its London D&O team, the largest in the London market, from 2007 to 2008. I spent four years running AIG’s Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and South Asia financial lines business based in Dubai, before returning to London to head up the UK financial lines operation for six years. Finally, I became Chief Underwriting Officer for financial lines across all of AIG’s business outside of the US and Canada.

I decided to joined Convex because it seemed like was a phenomenal opportunity, and it’s proven to be that way. The company is even better than I thought it would be in terms of the toolkit it brings and the way it’s positioned itself. I feel fortunate to be able to build out the financial lines platform and hire market leading talent.

How we work

At Convex, we are fortunate enough to have attracted the very best talent in the marketplace. People want to come and work here and they're excited to be part of it. That means I've been able to hire people who have the intellectual curiosity and energy that is part of Convex’s DNA.

We have very experienced, well-respected individuals heading up our Professional Indemnity and Financial Institutions teams, supported by senior underwriters. These people are self-starters; technical underwriters who are also incredible in front of clients. For us, that’s critical. Any underwriter we have needs to be able to be able to tell a client what they're doing and why – and build that trusted communication with them. Ultimately, that’s what brokers and clients respect, and what differentiates us in the marketplace.

Who we do business with

We write business globally for the full spectrum of clients and brokers, from Fortune 500 companies to fast-growing SMEs and middle-market buyers. We aim to build medium- to long term relationships with our clients by gaining their trust that we’re best placed to meet their needs. That doesn’t mean having the biggest book. It means being defined as the premier platform for financial lines underwriting, with the talent, expertise and credibility to be able to attract more business if we want it. And whatever the size of our book, the result for the client or broker will be the same: access to the best people and products on the market. Any underwriter we have needs to be able to be able to tell a client what they’re doing and why – and build that trusted communication with them.

Ultimately, that’s what brokers and clients respect, and what differentiates us in the marketplace.
