Andy Graham is head of specialist risks at Consilium. Andy is responsible for specialist liability risks and developing existing and new facilities for the group.
He joined the group in July 2020 having worked at Lloyd's broking firms for 34 years. This has included time at PWS International in UK account handling and time with Windsor Insurance Brokers specialising in liability. He then joined Griffiths and Armour London, which would later become COBRA London Markets, where he was a director.
Outside of work, Andy has both flown and jumped out of an aeroplane, among some other crazy things.
“I had several options on who to join but thought Consilium had the best facilities that would complement my account.”
The insurance industry has always been aware of the worldwide implications, and has specialist markets catering for life sciences partnering with pharmaceutical and medical device companies across the world. At Consilium, we work with these markets to tailor liability and property coverage for the insured. Policy limits are in place up to £25m, although higher limits may be available upon referral.
Our broker development managers are key to the development of our trading relationship with you. With a broad understanding of our market appetite and exclusive schemes, they are on hand to ensure that we grow together – winning and retaining more business.
