Hiscox Birmingham office was established in September 2000, putting us in the heart of the region's key commercial centre. The regional team is responsible for developing and managing business with a focused panel of brokers throughout the Midlands and the South West. It has full underwriting capability to handle the core areas of insurance for business professionals and high net worth individuals.

Considerable cumulative experience has given our regional operation an in-depth knowledge of the local market place, supporting our core strategy: to make decision-makers both expert and accessible and differentiate ourselves from competitors through local understanding and superior service.

Meet The Birmingham Team


Know your underwriter

This month we introduce Jim Dixon: "I have recently started at Hiscox as a Development Underwriter for Professions and Specialty Commercial and am very much enjoying it so far. I started my career as a Corporate Broker before doing stints at both Allianz and Axa.

Outside of work I like travelling and adventuring in new countries, cooking, keeping active by playing football, hiking or hitting the gym, and am partial to a few ales and a drop of whisky every now and then."
