Jamie Webb & James Gadbury: Costero Brokers: Filling the gap – solutions for complex risk


We might be buying our personal insurance directly these days, but brokers still play a key role when it comes to all but the simplest of coverage. Costero goes one step further and finds solutions for risks that are unusual, and often hard to place but which are solving some of the world’s insurance protection gaps. Intrigued to learn more?

This week Matthew Grant joins Managing Director Jamie Webb and Divisional Director James Gadbury, of Costero Brokers. UK-based - but with global clients.

Topics include:

  • The role of a broker for speciality business
  • Why US businesses come to Lloyd’s to find insurance and capacity
  • Supporting hard-to-place risks such as micro-mobility, autonomous vehicles and cryptocurrency 
  • Solutions for new companies pushing the boundaries of insurance such as Coincover, Nirvana, Thimble, ChAI and Aurora
  • Partnerships with Atrium, Markel and others
  • How Lloyd’s is helping create a market and opportunity for new solutions
