I joined Hiscox in July 2017 as a member of the Underwriting Service Team and have now recently progressed into a Trainee Development Underwriter role. I studied Biology at university and then started my insurance career at Abbeyfields Insurance. I once came 2nd at the Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships for the 1000m sprint, but had to give this dream up when I moved to Birmingham and now I feel like I’m up the creek without a paddle! I also love to travel and have recently just returned from a short backpacking trip around Thailand.

The Schemes roadshow is underway with events in Edinburgh and York already completed with great support from our brokers. Our local events are in Bristol on Monday 23rd April and Birmingham on Thursday 3rd May. There is still time to register.  

In this issue of Claims Today we put a spotlight on weather events, such as the recent 'Beast from the East' and how we proactively prepare for these events to ensure we can provide the best possible service to our customers. We also have a round-up of our latest private client, professional indemnity and public liability claims.

If that’s the question, then the answer for a significant number of us is to stay put and invest in home renovations instead of moving house - one of the key findings from our Hiscox Renovations and Extensions Report which lifts the lid on home improvement trends across the country, both past and future.

At a time of significant regulatory change, we are publishing regular updates on our website about what we are doing. This month we cover GDPR and IDD, also highlighting some important actions you need to take now. We have also created a handy GDPR action checklist you can download and print to help keep track of what you need to be doing now to ensure you are ready for the May 25th deadline.
