HSBC Insurance Brokers
Divisional Director

Impact of degree on career choice and current opportunities
My university experience has an indirect impact on my career choice. It taught me to consider all variables and assess relative values which I apply to my job as an Insurance Broker.

My current role involves marketing, placing and servicing insurance programmes for oil & gas companies worldwide, including construction projects. In this role I face a challenge of leading a world wide team and clientele based in different global locations with diverse cultures.

Advice to current students
A good insurance broker is not one who knows insurance well, but one who knows the subject matter well, such as marine, oil, gas, aviation - use technological awareness.
