With 12 years’ experience, Rachel is a specialist in Contractors’ Plant and Machinery underwriting and regularly liaises with various Lloyd’s syndicates.

Commenting on her appointment, Rachel said: “Fiducia’s client-first approach is a true differentiator which has enabled the business to establish a strong reputation for positive service and competitive pricing.

“The company’s standing within the UK MGA market was a key factor in me deciding to join Fiducia. Now that I am her, I am enjoying actively supporting our clients and brokers on their engineering product requirements whilst also building new relationships.”

Rachel’s appointment has grown Fiducia’s engineering underwriting team, further enabling the company to efficiently support its clients and brokers.

Welcoming Rachel to the company, Fiducia CEO, Gerry Sheehy, said: “Rachel has built up significant experience as a senior underwriter. She is a fantastic addition to our business and will enable our engineering team to meet the growing demand we are experiencing from clients and brokers.

“At a time of substantial renewal increases from some insurers, we remain committed to providing  brokers with positive client service and competitive rating in conjunction with A grade capacity. Rachel’s appointment further bolsters our ability to do this and I look forward to working with her to support our brokers.”
