Since MPR was established in 2016, we have gone from strength to strength with Five Star feedback from brokers, Chartered Insurance Underwriting Status and a recent Long Term Capacity Deal. Central to this is our team, which has over 185 years of combined financial lines experience between them. Consistent with our ongoing commitment to high quality products and service we are giving more focus in some of our key areas with the following promotions and role developments:
FI & PI Product Manager and Senior Underwriter
Catriona has over 18 years of financial lines insurance experience. She has worked in a variety of roles across the UK regions for Chubb & MPR, both developing and underwriting all major financial lines products. Having joined MPR in 2017 as Senior Underwriter, Catriona also now retains responsibility for the Professional Indemnity and Financial Institutions products.
Crime and Pension Liability Product Manager and Senior Underwriter
Anthony has 15 years’ experience in financial lines insurance, predominantly gained in roles with AIG, Chubb and MPR. Having spent an early part of his career working in a National Underwriting Centre in Manchester, Anthony built a knowledge base that he was able to utilise in a development role in the Midlands market. Prior to joining MPR in 2017 Anthony was Chubb’s UK&I subject matter expert on Crime and Kidnap & Ransom, managing the Crime product across all UK&I brokers. In addition to his Senior Underwriter role at MPR, Anthony now retains responsibility for the Crime and Pension liability products.
Portfolio Company Product Manager and Senior Development Underwriter
Magnus has over 20 years insurance experience in both broking and insurer roles. He spent 10 years with Chubb, the majority of this as Financial Lines Manager for Scotland before moving onto similar senior regional roles with other leading insurers.

Magnus has a wealth of knowledge and experience working across all financial lines, now with a particular focus on providing bespoke solutions to risks with private equity backing. He has built strong key trading relationships with partner brokers across the regions.
James has over 11 years industry experience across broking and underwriting, with 7 years in financial lines and the bulk of those gained at MPR. Responsible for underwriting all major financial lines products James has a particular focus on Management Liability, Crime and Cyber, and is responsible for renewal business and new enquiries, now as a Senior Underwriter.
