Women in Insurance

To celebrate International Women’s day, Neila Buurman, Chief Underwriting Officer, was interviewed by Notimex International regarding her position in the male dominated world of the Lloyd’s Market.

While we remain a minority, the number of women in senior executive roles is growing in the Lloyd’s market. We have of course Inga Beale as CEO, which would have been unthinkable when I started working in the industry in 1989.

With a female CEO at the helm of such an iconic corporation, Inga offers inspiration for so many women both in and outside of the insurance industry.

With continued hard work and talent, and of course support from managers, woman can continue to make substantial changes and steps forward in their careers.

Neila concludes, “It is key for any minority to have a voice and the opportunity to succeed. Diversity of thought brings value to businesses, and it’s important that managers and business owners recognise this. It’s something we certainly champion at Probitas 1492.”
