This podcast is also available on:

Welcome to the latest edition of the Leadership in Insurance Podcast where we were fortunate to be joined by Joel Pridmore Joel is MD and Co-Founder of Frontier Global Underwriting a UK-based MGA operated out of London and Australia that focuses on the D&O market. We have wanted to get an MGA entrepreneur on for some time and having only started Frontier in 2020 we were keen to hear about Joel's experience of launching a traditional MGA mid pandemic! In this episode we talk about: - The good foundations of working at a global corporate - Why now is time for an MGA? - Unique distribution and unique products - the MGA golden rules - Knowing your niche - the value of an MGA - How intrusive can we be to truly assess D&O risk? - Utilizing AI tools to better understand the risk - The MGA platform- the opportunities and limitations for you and your capacity providers - Why did Joel decide to raise investment vs plug into an existing MGA platform? - Build vs buy - why did Joel decide to build? - Configuration as a hindrance? can you have too much choice? soft market vs hard market perceptions of the MGA model - Does criticism of MGA ultimately fall back on capacity providers? are they complicit? - Is the capacity relationship inefficient? Should there be longer-term deals? - Why does Frontier only have one capacity provider?- The state of the D&O market in 2021 - The importance of giving people opportunities into the insurance market - The benefits of joining a small company as a grad - you see the whole business - Syndicate in a box - Should insurance ever be a competition on price? - Volume vs Value - Can we do better in attracting talent to the insurance market?
