We are delighted to announce that Martin Cowan, Account Executive from Melbourne has been selected to represent JLT in the 2018 Allianz Young Eagle Program!

In its eight year, this highly sought after, interactive program aims to educate and challenge participants to develop winning strategies addressing issues within the insurance industry.

Hazard™ is Ernst and young’s general insurance program that immerses participants in rounds of decision making in a realistic insurance market.

“It’s an honour to be selected and participate alongside other talented brokers. I’ll definitely make the most of this experience, and aim to gain an understanding of the consequences of market events and the effectiveness of varying management strategies to combat these events. I am also looking forward to improving my knowledge of the impact of the key drivers behind underwriting decisions and how these decisions lead to portfolio and overall insurer profitability.”

- Martin Cowan, Account Executive - Specialty, JLT

Future leaders from a number of different broking firms will be put into teams and compete against each other as they try to navigate industry challenges and come up with a winning strategy. As they go through the program, participants will gain:

  • Business insights by understanding the impacts of key drivers such as pricing, business volume, underwriting standards, customer profitability and more.
  • Exposure and increased capability in dealing with senior management of a leading Australian insurer.
  • Increased confidence and presentation skills.
