Invest in the future
From: Captive International, December 2018
Melvin Findlay, captive and global program specialist for the Captive Programs team at AXA XL based in London, shares his perspective on the opportunities the captive insurance industry offers to young people.
If you had asked me when I was 12 what I wanted to do when I grew up, I would have answered: “I want to travel the world. And wear a tie.”
Some years later, I find myself in a position where I have the opportunity to travel to major cities in Europe and North America, meet with professionals from a variety of leading international companies, and develop solutions to help these firms manage and mitigate risks more effectively today and in the future. And I do pack a tie or two.
Discovering the world of commercial insurance
Growing up in East London, I had no idea I would find myself working within the commercial insurance industry—and in one of the more specialist areas of the industry at that: captive insurance and global programmes.
