Today’s podcast is a meeting with a senior market figure most of us have known for many years.
Sean McGovern served in different board level capacities at Lloyd’s for just over 2 decades, before leaving to join the then XL Catlin in 2016 ahead of its 2018 acquisition by AXA.
Last summer he was made CEO of AXA XL’s UK and Lloyd’s business – the first time he has held a CEO post.
This interview is all about his plans for the role now that the difficult remedial actions aimed at turning around the large London Market insurer’s underwriting performance have been taken and market conditions have taken a decisive turn for the better.
As a veteran Lloyd’s spokesperson Sean has been in the public eye for many years and in this encounter I found him easy-going, relaxed and excited to be running a major London operation with the backing of the world’s largest P&C group behind him
Listen on for an insider’s view of the opportunities currently presenting themselves in the London market.
