London, 2nd November, 2020: Independent Lloyd’s broker AFL Insurance Brokers Ltd (AFL) is delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Edwards as Senior Casualty Broker.
A rising star in our sector, Stuart started his career at Willis Towers Watson in 2014 after successfully completing a two-year Graduate Scheme with Willis GB Retail.
Having completed an impressive list of placements and internships over the past decade, including six years focusing on UK Retail Liability broking, Stuart brings both enthusiasm and experience to his new role.
AFL Casualty Broker Stuart Edwards said:
“With lots of M&A activity in the sector over the past few years, the opportunities for a boutique, independent broker have never been greater. The casualty market is rapidly evolving and conditions are challenging, and for the first time in many brokers’ careers, capacity is becoming increasingly difficult to secure at competitive rates.
The client’s that seek a personal service combined with creativity and innovation have fewer and fewer options when it comes to choosing their insurance broker. The M&A activity, combined with the market conditions mean that AFL is perfectly positioned to help clients navigate through the challenging market environment, and achieve the optimal solutions they require.”
AFL CEO Jonathan Bines said:
“We are very pleased to welcome Stuart to the team at AFL. Our clients need creative, determined brokers who will navigate this rapidly changing market in their best interests, and always relish a challenge. Taking on tough challenges is a major part of what we do and Stuart will be a great addition to our group who are all enjoying successfully getting things done that require way more than a simple transactional approach.
Our clients want personal service and want people who will drive hard to ensure that they get the best possible deals for them, particularly in these challenging market conditions and we know that Stuart will fit in well with our forward-looking culture and contribute to our ongoing growth. We remain selective and focussed on the areas where we know we can bring something of value to the chain and Stuart is exactly the kind of person who will be able to deliver something to clients that others may not”.
