In this episode of BPL Pulse’s podcast series, Jonny Carruthers, Director of BPL Global, speaks to Simon Philpin, Senior Underwriter & Global Head of Business Development (Trade Credit Division) at Markel, about Syndication in the Trade Credit Insurance Market.

“If the insured is looking to finance their receivables, the more cover they have in place, the more they’re able to finance. So it’s quite critical, sometimes from a CFOs point of view, if they are able to get a higher capacity in place close to the maximum of 100%. If they can, that makes things like working capital when financing is a lot more beneficial for themselves.”

BPL Global’s Gregory King-Underwood speaks to Uwe Haug, Head of Underwriting Strategy and Business Development – Financial Risks Reinsurance at Liberty Mutual Reinsurance, delving into the January 1st renewal season and how recent Covid-19 variants have impacted reinsurers. They also discuss the difference in performance between Lloyd’s and Company markets, and Private carriers versus ECAs, and examine the outlook for a more sustainable 2022.

“While you might still see a bit of difference in the underwriting set up between Lloyds and company markets, I think the two of them have become pretty close, as they are also sharing more of the same business now.”

Dan Osman of Aspen

In the inaugural episode of BPL Pulse’s podcast series, James Reynolds, Director at BPL Global, speaks to Dan Osman, Head of Political Risk at Aspen, about derivatives in the Credit and Political Risk Insurance market.

“The main thing for banks to think about is, are they purely after credit relief, or do they want to get full XVA relief? And if they want full XVA relief, they need to have full proportional cover, the same as you would with a non-payment insurance on a loan.”
