Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the new line up last week? You’ll be hearing from Roy McLoughlin again over the coming Season. Please contact me if there is anything you’d like us to cover in future episodes.

This week Helen Croft, head of underwriting strategy at AIG, joined me to discuss the virus that has dominated the past year. This is a great opportunity to hear an in-depth view of Covid from an underwriter’s perspective. We focus on why Covid presents such a high risk, what the new mutations could mean for the protection insurance industry, and we explore the potential side effects of long Covid and how that may impact the process. Feeling positive now the vaccination programme is underway, we look towards the year ahead and express our hopes for some normality by Easter, fingers crossed!

In the next episode, new regular co-host Matt Rann will be with me and we will be focusing on mental health and underwriting.
