Pool Re CEO Enoizi to step down in spring 2022
Pool Re, Britain’s leading terrorism reinsurer, has announced that ceo Julian Enoizi, after leading the mutual for eight years, has decided that he will leave the business in the spring of 2022.
Pool Re has undergone significant development under Enoizi’s leadership and has been at the forefront of leading change in global insurance and reinsurance in response to the evolving terrorism threat.
Notable achievements include more than doubling the buffer between the UK taxpayer and terrorism loss from £5bn in 2013 to £12bn today, achieved both through the growth of the fund and the implementation of the world’s largest terrorism reinsurance programme combined with an innovative ILS issuance. In addition, the company has invested in ground-breaking risk mitigation initiatives in partnership with government and the counter-terrorism police.
Other innovations include the introduction of risk-reflective pricing, the extension of cover to include cyber and non-damage business interruption, increased engagement with the academic sector to further the understanding of both terrorism risk and its management, and the establishment of the risk advisory division, Pool Re Solutions.
Internationally, Enoizi has spearheaded global collaboration through the foundation of the International Forum of Terrorism Risk (Re)Insurance Pools(IFTRIP), enabling knowledge sharing and exchange of experience in areas such as mitigation and capacity building across national terrorism pools.
Pool Re has begun a process to identify Enoizi’s successor and an announcement regarding that appointment will be made in due course.
Angela Knight, chair designate of the Pool Re board, comments “We would like to thank Julian for his transformational contribution to Pool Re over the past eight years. He has overseen the development of a passive mechanism of risk transfer into a dynamic organisation that offers market leading research, analysis, thought leadership, risk management guidance and which as a result, is firmly established as a critical component of both the financial and governmental infrastructure. Julian has also been tireless in working to achieve a signed framework agreement governing Pool Re’s seamless transition to an Arm’s-Length Body of government. We wish him every success in his future endeavours.”
Enoizi added “It has been a privilege to lead Pool Re. I have enjoyed working with an extremely talented team and drawing on our various combined experiences to create a world leading national resilience entity in the terrorism sphere. I am pleased and proud to have been able to support a significant return of terrorism risk to the commercial insurance markets through increased retentions as well as through the reinsurance programme. Pool Re is now a business well equipped to meet the challenges of the evolving terrorism threat as well as providing a template for responding to the emergence of other systemic risks.”
